The Hustle and the Best of Van McCoy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Hamilton
Originally released in 1976, these 15 tracks showcase Van McCoy's alter ego as a purveyor of perky disco, a striking contrast from the memorable soul tunes (i.e., "Sweet Bitter Love," "Giving Up," "Right on the Tip of My Tongue," "Sweetest Thing This Side of Heaven," and "When You're Young and In Love") that made him a fat cat in the '60s. A good buy for the sophisticated club dancers to slide in every now and then and test their motor skills. Contains bonus tracks that weren't on the original vinyl platter -- but why shouldn't there be, since the CD costs more.
