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

to an incredible #4 in the UK and stayed in the charts for an
