REVIEWS
Average points: 4.11 (Reviews: 9)
****
Im Kielwasser des Erfolges ihres Mannes George landete Gwen mit diesem Titel 1975 ihren ersten und einzigen Hit in den USA. "Rockin' Chair" ist zwar nichts besonderes, hat aber einen guten Rhytmus und eignete sich seinerzeit gut zum tanzen.

Ich runde einfach mal auf. Schöne, relaxte Soul-Nummer mit leichtem Groove. Sexy gesungen, wenn auch die Stimme wenig Energie zu haben scheint. Die arme Gwen soll ja seinerzeit öfter mal Prügel von ihrem Ex-Gatten bezogen haben.
**
Da wollte sie es im Fahrwasser des Hits ihres Ehemannes versuchen, ging aber ziemlich daneben.

Dafür brachte sie Anfang 80er noch Achtbares raus wie "Keep The Fire Burning" oder "Funky Sensation".

****
akzeptables Soulfunk-Stück aus Mitte der 70er – 3.5 (aufgerundet auf knappe 4*)...#9 in den Billboard Hot 100 1975...
****
Es rockt zwar nicht, ist aber okay. Ihr sogenannter Wundergatte war auch nicht so besonders.
****

One Hit Wonder.

Schöner Soul Titel.
*****
Een "antwoordlied" op "Rock Your Baby" van haar toenmalige echtgenoot George McCrae. Een hit in de VS, Nederland liet de plaat links liggen.
*****
Prima soul/disco uit de 70's

▒ Een wat onbekend gebleven plaatje uit 1975 door de nu inmiddels 74 jarige Amerikaanse zangeres uit Florida: "Gwen McCrae / Mosley" !!! Goed genoeg voor de vier sterren ☺!!!
