George McCrae - George McCrae

George McCrae
Born in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1944, George McCrae started his musical career singing in church and later joining the glee club at school. He formed his own singing group called The Jivin’ Jets before joining the navy in 1963 and reformed the group on his return in 1967 with the addition of his wife Gwen before they later decided to work as a duo on Henry Stone’s Alston label before Gwen went solo and George worked on sessions until a chance moment had him record Rock Your Baby, written by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch of KC and the Sunshine Band.
Following the huge success of Rock Your Baby, (Also available on BBR), Grammy Award Nominee, GEORGE McCRAE, followed with the release of his self-titled second solo effort in 1975. While the album was well received in the US, placing on the Billboard Hot 200 Pop chart and #24 on the US R&B chart, it was the in the UK where GEORGE McCRAE was particularly well received with the album reaching #54 in the UK Pop charts and the singles doing even better.
The first single, SING A HAPPY SONG reached the top 40 slowing at #38 and was followed by, ITS BEEN SO LONG, with its killer drum beat, fantastic horn section and of course GEORGE McCRAE’S trademark smooth and incredibly soulful voice. This single charted to an incredible #4 in the UK and stayed in the charts for an impressive 11 weeks! I AIN’T LYING continued the album’s success reaching #12 on the UK pop charts of October 1975 and HONEY I was a final top 40 hit from the album at the beginning of 1976.
