George McCrae – George McCrae (1975) (Jay Boy)

Several things struck about the sleeve to this Rock Me Baby follow-up:  someone in the art department at TK dropped the ball, this looks like it came from the late 60s; someone else (or maybe the same person) told George that his right side was the good one; and finally, our man has some seriously bushy-ass eyebrows.

The music is, as previously, unambitious, but I do like the way they make the drums sound. Despite being written, produced and arranged by Casey and Finch and played by the Sunshine band, it’s not quite the bubble-gum funk of the parent band, at least not on side one.  It’s a bit more R&B.  “Honey (I’ll Live My Life For You)” and “Take This Love of Mine” on side two could have easily slotted in to a KC album.

Note: this appears on the yellow Jay Boy label.
