2010 collection. The songs of the late Van McCoy have been part of the soundtrack to everyone's life for more than 50 years. He became a hit artist in his own right in the mid-'70s, thanks to 'The Hustle', but it's his creativity as a composer/arranger in the '60s that has beguiled Soul fans. Featured artists on this collection, including Jackie Wilson, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Erma Franklin, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Jerry Butler, Esther Phillips, Irma Thomas and Chuck Jackson, show that McCoy 's songs were invariably given the VIP treatment by the biggest stars in the Soul firmament.
