The Three Degrees were hugely successful internationally throughout the
seventies, particularly in the UK where they enjoyed ten top forty hits
including Year Of Decision, Take Good Care Of Yourself and the anthemic ballad When Will I See You Again,
all on Philadelphia International Records. New Dimensions was the trio's first
album for Ariola Records where they were teamed with hotter than hot producer
Giorgio Moroder, who was riding high on his work with Donna Summer.
The top forty album spent thirteen weeks on the UK album chart in 1979
and spun off three hugely successful megahits in the shape of the discofied Giving Up, Giving In and The Runner as well as the top three
ballad Woman In Love.

Released on 27/09/10. Van McCoy originated an awful lot of music in his brief 39 years as a writer, producer, arranger and occasional singer. He signed on as a recording artist after several years as a writer for Columbia’s wholly owned music publishing company April-Blackwood. It is quite likely that he was signed as a performer in an attempt to fill the gap left by one of the Columbia labels biggest artists, Johnny Mathis, who had recently departed to join the Mercury label. Van performs such Mathis styled interpretations of standards such as How High The Moon , Every Time We Say Goodbye , I Can Dream Can t I and I Get Along Without You Very Well as well as a few of his own compositions. The album was produced by Columbia’s long time executive Mitch Miller. Here is the first opportunity in many years to enjoy his one solo vocal album.
