George McCrae – Rock Your Baby

Second post from todays mega-binge of second-hand vinyl..   And what a bleedin classic of 1974 funky-soul-disco if ever there is one.  Man – I was at school when this stuff was on the radio – all pre-punk stuff of course which only a couple of years later we would all strut-our-stuff saying how crap it all was – but man – now being a sad-old-git – with a penchant for a funky-sexy-groove – this is the bizz !!

My copy here is in immaculate condition – and is a joy to hear these tracks blasting from a sub-woofer enhanced monitoring system – as opposed to the poxy MW transistor-radio I would have last heard them from …

Classic shit man !!!

  1. My copy is a UK pressing on TK, not Jay Boy. I’m guessing the Jay Boy is earlier version. However, mine is “autographed” “To Ana, Be Ever Wonderful, Love George McCrae.”

    Of course, the Rock Your Baby is a virtual KC & the Sunshine Band lp being written, produced and played by the band. I’ve got a suberb KC Best of with the crappiest bargain bin cover. Now, that’s on Jay Boy.

    Jay Boy is a subsidiary (or something) of President which had on its roster another interracial band, the Equals of “Baby Come Back” fame.

  2. bugger. i saw a copy of this a few weeks ago, but passed on it cos they wanted 3 quid. looks like i missed a good ‘un. curse my thrifty ways!

  3. This one is from 1974 – and the label is indeed Jay Boy – but in fine print on the sleeve and label, informs you it is copyright “T.K. Records a div. of T.K PRODUCTIONS, INC.” So guess they are one of the same ?

    Yep you should grab it Nick, some nice stuff and fine grooves – if you like this sort of thing! Mine was only 50-pence however so a no-brainer …..

  6. It’s Sunshine Band day at Cassette Library HQ. I nicked this one off my eldest sister. Hers is Jay Boy too. I initially thought the label explanation was as simple as TK for US / Jay Boy for UK but Discogs say it isn’t so, so I’m all at sea.

    Discogs also tells us that “The letters T.K. stood for Terry Kane, the engineer who built Henry’s 8-track recording studio.” Nice.

    Good little article on Henry Stone here:
