Where to you start?     theres an old saying ..  "whatever he touched,  turned to gold"    well this is true in the case of Van McCoy. 

 

   Baby Dont change your mind,   Walk away from love,   through to Sandi Sheldon on OKEH,  to Billy Woods ,  A love you can depend on, etc etc.    the man was a true musical genius.   His arranging was up there,  sometimes above and beyond the Big hitters,  like Gamble / Huff,   Barry White,  Berry Gordy's Motown

   The Hustle is a masterpiece of orchestral arrangement,   David Ruffin sang his heart out on WAFL,  with another arrangement masterpiece behind him. 

    he was indeed MIDAS,     i have nothing but admiration and awe for him.

An early gem written by Van McCoy and also recorded by Nancy Wilson, of course.

I can only echo what Ian has already said, Van McCoy was a Musical Genius...

I always enjoyed hearing the Shuffle from the first day I heard it as a youngster I knew then I was listening to something magical....
