Biography

General Crook got his start in Chicago’s lounge scene after moving from Greensville, MS at the age of eighteen. Crook landed a deal with Capitol Records with the single In The Warmth Of My Arms (1969) written by The Salty Peppers, which would evolve into Earth, Wind, and Fire. However, the single did nothing to take him out of the Chicago music scene. He tried once again in 1970 yet failed and was dropped from Capitol.

He tried again in the early 70s with the smaller label Down To Earth Records producing two R&B chart contenders Gimme Some and What Time It Is?.

Producing a full album in 1974 featuring the immortal Fever in the Funkhouse, he worked in a few more singles afterward, yet with no obvious interest in his output Crook hung up his vocal chords and turned his attention to producing and writing for the likes of Syl Johnson and Willie Clayton.
