Biography

There are (3) musicians with the name (Paul King):

1: Paul King (Early 70’s revival musician)
2: Paul King (musician, VJ)
3: Paul King (UK Hard House producer)

1. Paul King (born January 9, 1948, Dagenham, UK), was a member of Mungo Jerry between 1970 and 1972. He contributed occasional lead vocals, and played acoustic guitar (6 and 12 string), banjo, harmonica, kazoo and jug. His songs on the first Mungo Jerry album and on the early maxi-singles were generally more folksy and lighter in style than those of group leader Ray Dorset, and he was frustrated when his own songs were constantly rejected for subsequent albums.

On the second album, ‘’Electronically Tested’‘, his composition “Black Bubonic Plague” appeared on European copies only, but not on the United Kingdom release. He wrote the song “Hey Rosalyn” on “You Don’t Have to In The Army”, Mungo’s third album. King recorded a solo album, ‘’Been in the Pen Too Long’’ in 1972, and left Mungo Jerry shortly afterwards.

He and the group’s keyboard player Colin Earl (born 6 May 1942, Hampton) formed the King Earl Boogie Band with guitarist Dave Lambert, bassist Russell John Brown and washboard player Joe Rush, who had been a part-time Mungo member. Their album ‘’Trouble at Mill’’ was well reviewed, but a single “Plastic Jesus” was banned by the BBC on grounds of blasphemy. The group disbanded a few months later, and Lambert later joined Strawbs.

King then pursued a solo career, releasing occasional records under the names P. Rufus King and D’Jurann D’Jurann (no connection with the British group Duran Duran), as well as under his usual name.
