Gwen McCrae - Something So Right (1976)

"Something So Right" was released shortly after the break-up of Gwen's marriage to George McCrae, a recording artist in his own right. The two had recorded together as a duo through the late 60's before transitioning to working solo in the early 70's. After George's unexpected 1974 hit, "Rock Your Baby" (which was supposed to be a song for Gwen but was recorded by George when she couldn't make it to the studio), and Gwen's own hit, "Rockin' Chair," individual success began to take a toll on the marriage. An album of duets failed to repair the relationship, and the couple separated. "Something So Right" came out a short while later, with the song "Damn Right It's Good" charting successfully. Other strong efforts included the title track and "I've Got Nothing To Lose But The Blues."
