The Hustle

The Hustle - Van McCoy & The Soul City Symphony 1975
c/w Hey Girl, Come And Get It (Hugo & Luigi-George David Weiss)

Taken from the album 'Disco Baby' this disco hit nearly never came to be. One of his New York DJ friends (David Todd) kept asking him to come and wee this new dance - The Hustle. He liked it as thought it was good for people to be dancing together again, not just doing their own thing.
So with an hour of studio time left he recorded what came into his head and 'The Hustle' became his only top 40 single and No. 1, and won a Grammy for 'best pop instrumental'.
