"Get on down...and PARTY!"

"Oh, the 70's, they were a time of inhibitions released to the throb of a disco beat. No better purveyor of the sound could be found in the music of Van McCoy. While his "The Hustle" was, without a doubt, one of the tunes that symbolized the decade, McCoy was also responsible for other jams that one could really "shake his tail feathers to". Many of the tracks on this fifteen-cut compilation exemplified the times. With careful arrangements of strings, horns, percussion, and rhythm, McCoy and company worked musical magic.
"Boogie Down", sounding as if it were lifted from a "spaghetti western", "Change with the Times", the self-explanatory "Party", the menacing "Night Walk", and a rousing "Theme from Star Trek" are some the highlights of an album designed to get one groovin' to the sounds, putting on the leisure suit, the stacked heels, and ready to get under the disco ball."
It's not realy best from Van McCoy

"I was looking for Van McCoy's CD for years. Yesterday I accidentally found this one in HMV. I purchased it without hesitation for HK[money] (about US[money]) - too expensive.I like Van McCoy. I owned many vinyl albums 20 years ago. I am disappointed with this CD because some of his famous songs like "Get Dancing" and "African Symphony" cannot be found in this CD. Instead, it includes some not so hit songs (in my opinion) like "Boogie Down" and "Shuffle".The CD includes a Hustle Remix (track 1), but I prefer the original mix (track 14).I am still finding Van McCoy's CD like "Disco Baby" from Van McCoy and The Soul City Symphony. And a CD version of the vinyl album titled "Magnificent" or something with the word "Magnificent" (with a chain machine printed on the vinyl album cover).AW"
Great for dancing the Hustle, for those that remember how!

"Although I don't have this CD, I do have the original vinyl version from 1975 with most of these songs on it, it's great to dance to and I still remember how to Hustle. Enjoy!"
