George McCrae was the founder of The Miami Sound Machine and indeed most probably the first disco dance performer of all time when he hit the charts in 1974 with the worldwide No. 1 hit single Rock your baby. This record still holds the world record for being No. 1 in no less than 82 countries throughout the world, selling an impressive 52 million copies worldwide, making it one of the highest grossing single releases in pop history. This disco hurricane from Florida went on to have further top ten hits with I can’t leave you alone and It’s been so long. His full discography of UK hits is given below.
