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’, Grammy Award
Nominee, GEORGE McCRAE, followed with the release of his selftitled
second solo effort in 1975 (both available on BBR), the latter
of which was very well received in the US and even more so in the

The follow up album DIAMOND TOUCH, released in 1976, continues
in the rich vein of his previous two LPs. Recorded in New York and
produced by Gregg Diamond (hence the title) DIAMOND TOUCH
spawned the single ‘Love In Motion’, a super-funky disco stomper
with a down and dirty clavinet vamp that drives the track (courtesy
of Robert Geiger), and an inspired sax solo from Joe Ferguson,
which typifies the strength of Groove across the album,
complementing Georges incredible and incomparable Soul vocal

BBR is very proud to present this newly re-mastered and stunningly
re-packaged expanded edition of DIAMOND TOUCH complete with
extensive liner notes and additional bonus content.

This BBR re-master is a must have item for any Soul, Disco and R&B
fans! Especially those who have picked up the BBR re-masters of

McCrae collection.
