"The Hustle" was a hit 1975 disco song by Van McCoy & The Soul City Symphony. Van Allen Clinton McCoy (January 6, 1940 July 6, 1979) was an accomplished musician, music producer and arranger, songwriter, and orchestra conductor. He has around 700 song copyrights to his credit and is also notable for producing such recording artists as Gladys Knight and The Pips, The Stylistics, Aretha Franklin, Brenda & The Tabulations, David Ruffin, Peaches & Herb, and Stacy Lattisaw. While in New York City to make an album, McCoy was inspired to record what would become his most well-known song after his music partner, Charles Kipps, watched patrons do an elegant dance called "the hustle" at the Adam's Apple club. "The Hustle" was a huge international crossover hit. It reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot Soul Single charts during the summer of 1975. It would eventually sell over one million copies and is one of the most popular songs of the disco era. The song also won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. Unfortunately, McCoy's life was cut short when he died from a heart attack in Englewood, New Jersey at the age of 39. This channel is dedicated to all the great 'old school' R&B music I grew up with, the stuff that originally made me tap my feet and want to be a DJ. Funk, soul, disco, R&B, dance, hip-hop, pop . . . 60s, 70s, 80s . . . whatever you call it, it's all 'Old School' and it's all here!
