Earl's recording début, the Clancy Eccles-produced 'See Me', surfaced on Trojan's Clandisc subsidiary in 1970, credited to Larry Lawrence, the first of a number of pseudonyms used by the singer during his career. Soon after, Earl released a couple of self-productions 'There's A Train' and 'Guilty Of Loving This Man' before cutting a version of the Bee Gee's 'I Forgot To Be Your Lover' (aka 'To BE A Lover') for Leoman Records in 1971. Subsequent discs included releases on his own Cresta imprint, plus a rendering of 'Lavender Blue' for Hu-Del Records in 1974. That same year, the singer attended his first recording session with Perry that resulted in a reworking of 'To Be A Lover', which saw issue in the UK on the Ethnic label, crediting the singer as George Earl.
He subsequently recorded with Glen Lee, for whom he cut 'Green Hills, I Won't Cry' and 'Gonna Give Her All The Love I've Got' while sessions with Lloyd 'Spider Man' Campbell resulted in a number of 45s, including 'Since I Met You Baby' and a version of 'Island In The Sun'. a collaboration with Phil Pratt then resulted in 'Love Is Something', which surfaced on the Terminal label, whilst with Barry Dunn producing, Earl reworked the Terry & Jerry oldie, 'People Are Doing it Everyday' and returned to Trojan in 1977 with his first recording of 'Opportunity', which saw issue on the company's Horse subsidiary.
Soon after, Earl was reunited with Perry, who decided the singer should be known as George Faith to reflect the singer's determination and belief. The union led to a remake of 'To Be A Lover (Have Some Mercy)', which surfaced on Island Records' revived Black Swan label, while subsequent singles included 'I've Got The Groove' c/w a remake of 'Opportunity' and 'Midnight Hour' c/w '(If I Could) Turn Back The Hands Of Time', all of which featured on his debut album, 'Super Eight' - subsequently reissued by Island as 'To Be A Lover'.
A follow-up album, 'Working On The Guideline' along with a tour fell through, although the sublime title track became available when in 2010 it featured on the Trojan compilation, 'Sipple Out Deh: The Black Ark Years'. Meanwhile, back in 1978, Phil Pratt produced the singer's second album, 'One And Only', although with the set including some of his earlier works it paled in comparison to the Upsetter collection.
As the decade drew to a close, Earl worked with Alvin 'G.G.' Ranglin, who produced the albums, 'Loving Something' and 'Since I Met You Baby' and Bunny Lee, who issued the 'Soulful' collection in 1979. A little later, the singer relocated in Canada, where he primarily remained until the mid-'80s when, with Winston Wright's sublime arrangements, he cut ' Sings For Lovers Only', the highlights of which included a fine remake of `Diana'.
In 2003, serious health problems led to Earl convalescing in a Kingston hospital and, sadly, shortly after being discharged, he suffered a relapse from which he did not recover. During his lifetime, he illustrated a hugely impressive vocal dexterity that contributed to some of the most soulful Reggae music yet to see issue, with the quality of his work consistently high - be he credited as Earl George, George Earl or George Faith.
