Born Gwen Mosley in Pensacola, FL, in 1943, she grew up singing in her Pentecostal church and later discovered secular singers like Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin. She began performing in local clubs as a teenager, also singing with local groups like the Lafayettes and the Independents. George & Gwen were discovered in 1967 by singer Betty Wright, who helped get them signed to Henry Stone's Alston label. Their debut single, "Three Hearts in a Tangle," was released in 1969; the follow-up, "Like Yesterday Our Love Is Gone," marked the first time they worked with the writing team of Clarence Reid (who would later morph into the bawdy comic Blowfly) and Willie Clarke. Pleased with her enduring popularity in the . McCrae eventually recorded an entire album for the British Homegrown label in 1996, titled Girlfriend's Boyfriend.
The roots of this 1975 disco soul album are still quite aligned with the rock funk side of things. Duets with George occasionally reminisce Curtis Mayfield. All in all this is quality. I even like later disco so that's never a problem for me, but this album's closer to the funk roots than stuff that would come out a couple years later.
Rockin' Chair (Gwen McCrae song). Rockin' Chair is a 1975 crossover single by Gwen McCrae. The song is not to be confused with either Fats Domino's 1951 R&B hit of the same name or the 1929 "Rockin' Chair" by Hoagy Carmichael. Rockin' Chair" was McCrae's sole entry into the top 10 on both the soul and pop charts. The single hit number nine on the pop charts, and number one on the soul chart for one week
Florida-native Gwen McCrae is best known for disco club rug-burners from the early 80s, but her first few long-players were cut for the southern soul label CAT records (subsidiary of TK Productions). And Southern Soul doesn’t get much better than this. It was hard for me to believe that the first of these, ‘Rockin’ Chair’, was not conceived as a cohesive record but as a collection of previously-released sides and some new material hurriedly assembled to follow up on the enormous success of that boisterous single. Let me be your rocking chair, indeed. Something So Right’ is a much more downbeat, mellow affair that was put together in a more traditional way as an album. Two cover songs - the Paul Simon title cut, and Little Anthony & The Imperials Tears on My Pillow – open the album.
