Van McCoy – Disco Baby



Classic disco long-player from ’75, includes hit single ‘The Hustle’, along with another nine crunchy, compressed rump-shakers.  Of particular note is Van’s version of “Get Dancin'” (a hit for Disco Tex & His Sex-O-Lettes the previous year) which features the craziest Clavinet breakdown I ever heard (played by crack session man Leroy Leon Pendarvis).  A fab record. Producers Hugo & Luigi felt moved to write “Van, we have never worked with a more refreshing and creative musical talent. Producing your album was a trip”.

The sleeve photos by Si Chi Ko are great too – I like the way he captured an almost orgasmic expression on the model’s face on the cover.

This record was reduced in a sale at Oxfam in Keynsham, though I would’ve probably paid the full price anyway!
