Dorset a Earl byli původně členové formace The Good Earth. Brzy poté byli rekrutováni do sestavy Paula Kinga a Mikea Colea. S novým názvem Mungo Jerry poprvé vystoupili v květnu 1970 na festivalu v Newcastle. V tu dobu vyšel jejich první singl "In the Summertime". S písní sklidili úspěch nejen na zmíněním festivalu, ale nahrávka se umístila po dobu sedmi týdnů na vrcholu britské charts i světových hitparád. Doposud se prodalo kolem 23 miliónů kopií. Po personální změně, kdy Colea nahradil John Geoffrey, vyšel druhý singl "Baby Jump", který rovněž vystoupal na vrchol britské charts singlů. Stalo se tak v březnu 1971. Další celosvětová pecka Mungo Jerry "Lady Rose" (ve stejném roce 1971) se zasloužila o to, že byli Mungo Jerry označeni jako skupina produkující hity pro letní pohodu.

Ray Dorset

V roce 1972 vydal Dorset sólové album "Cold Blue Excursion" obohacené sekcí smyčců a dechových nástrojů. Uvedl se tímto jako schopná jazzová kapela. Na jeho záměr rozšířit sestavu o bubeníka však reagoval King a Earl tím, že se jej pokusili z kapely vyhodit. Management naopak rozhodl o jeho setrvání a naopak propuštěni byli King a Earl. Dali tak najevo Dorsetovi, kdo je v očích veřejnosti "Pan Mungo Jerry". Se svým vyjímečným zpěvem a skladatelským talentem dával záruku k tomu, aby společně s Geoffreym doplnil a úspěšně obnovil skupinu. 

Toto rozhodnutí mělo za následek nahrání pravděpodobně nejlepšího alba Mungo Jerry, představujícího nový zvuk, "Boot Power".
King a Earl založili King Earl Boogie Band.

Mungo Jerry nahrávali hity nepřetržitě až do roku 1976  - "Open Up" (Top Twenty v Evropě a č.1 v Brazílii); "Alright Alright Alright (coververze staré francouzské písně od Jacques Dutronc a opět velký celosvětový hit); "Wild Love"; "Long Legged Woman Dressed In Black"; Hello Nadine" (celoevropský hit a Top five v Kanadě); "It's a Secret (celoevropský hit).

DorsetSestava kapely se v průběhu let několikrát měnila. Mezi těmi, kdo zde hráli jsou např. Bob Daisley(basa), Dave Bidwell, Paul Hancox, Boris Williams(bicí), Dick Middleton(kytara), Steve Jones(klávesy). 
Popularitě se kapela těšila hlavně v Evropě. Byli jednou z prvních skupin, které měly živé televizní vystoupení i v mnoha zemích za "Železnou oponou". Jejich slavné vystoupení "Golden Orpheus" v Bulharsku jim přineslo spoustu dalších fanoušků.

V roce 1980 se Dorset připoměl písní, původně napsanou pro Elvise Presley, "Feels Like I'm In Love", která vyšla jako B-strana singlu a stala se v Británii hitem č.1. Částečný úspěch se dostavil i se zámořskými hity jako "On A Night Like This", "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" a "Sunshine Reggae" (Britská verze od Mungo Jerry & Horizon). 

Na opravdový comeback si ale Dorset musel počkat až do roku 1995, když "In the Summertime" nahrál reggae vokalista Shaggy a vystoupal až na samý vrchol světových hitparád. Poslední hit Mungo Jerry v Británii byl "Toon Army" v roce 1999. Jednalo se o hymnu pro Newcastle United F.C. 

V roce 1983 byl Dorset členem bluesové supergroup Katmandu, která nahrála album"A Case For The Blues" s kytaristou Peterem Greenem, zakládajícím členem Fleetwood Mac a Vincentem Cranem, zakladatelem Atomic Rooster.
