Initially part of the duo George and Neville that did a few tunes for Leslie Kong, George was Reggae George (b. George Daley in 1950). Neville, being Neville Beckford later to become the famed deejay Jah Woosh. After the two parting ways George Daley recorded the song "Babylon Kingdom Fall" under the name Prince George, a name he only came to use once. Already by his second release, "Fig Root" he used the name Reggae George. The song was produced by Sonia Pottinger for her High Note label. The song became a success and lead to George Daley recording for the producer Hartnell Henry in a session where Bingi Bunny and Sowell Radics featured, both of who would form a part of the Roots Radics. Some of his more notable singles where "Read The Bible" which was followed by "Vision", "Stop Push the Fire" and a version of Dennis Walks hit "Drifter".

He then met Winston "Niney" Holness for whom he recorded "Trodding". This was for Reggae George a major hit that appeared in the reggae chart and achieved international acclaim. "Three Wicked Men" followed for Bob Marley's offshoot label to Tuff Gong, the label 56 Hope Road. Rita Marley engineered the recording with assistance by Sylvan Morris.

Trojan records were by now very interested in releasing a record for Reggae George. Mix Up was the resulting album. The album was produced by Prince Far I and musicians included on the set were Jah Lloyd, Sowell Radics, Errol Holt and Professor Larry. The album was an artistic success but unfortunately not a big seller. In 1983 his Tuff Gong recordings surfaced on Dennis Brown's label Yvonne's Special in the UK, while Greensleeves Records released "Walla Walla" and the more popular "You'll Never Know"/"We Still Survive". In the pipeline was also a follow up to the album "Mix Up", but with the murder of Prince Far I the project was abandoned.

In the mid 80's Reggae George teamed up once again with his old time friend Neville Beckford, by the time known as the deejay and produced Jah Woosh. He produced George's sophomore album Fight On My Own, a Showcase album that featured backing by the High Times Band and the Roots Radics.
