Van McCoy and the Soul City Symphony: Hustling Up The Charts
Vernon Gibbs, Essence, 1975
EVEN THOUGH he has been writing, arranging and producing hit records since 1961, Van McCoy is still technically a newcomer. He is of that breed of composer-performers, like Barry White, Johnny Bristol, Barrett Strong and Isaac Hayes, who after years of writing hits for others has decided to grab a share of the bright lights for himself.
