Yes it's gonna be a good year for "Debbie Taylor". In addition to the Scottish weekender, there's a possibility of another gig or two.

Copies of her new US album (Maydie Myles) are being imported and she's featured in the latest issue of ITB magazine.

Maydie is on facebook too, she's enjoying all the attention.

The Decca tracks were cut in 1967 at Willie Mitchell's studio in Memphis and it's interesting to learn that 'Check Yourself' was actually produced by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, although the label credit went to Joe Medlin.

This is wonderful news. I thought Debbie Taylor was irretrievably lost to us, musically speaking. Well done Yogi and the rest of the guys for securing this UK appearance. What's the gen on this.? When did she decide to return to the music biz?

Hello Macca,

Debbie has been there all the time, really, using her real name Maydie Myles. She's recorded a few disco and house singles over the years and recently issued a jazzy-flavoured CD herself.

The internet enabled her to see how much overseas interest there is in her old recordings. No doubt she saw references to the Today album reissued on CD and the Ace/Kent albums featuring her GWP recordings.

Lots of people have been looking for her for years but were unaware of her real name until recently.

Facebook has helped her to connect with friends old and new. I put her in touch with Tom Moulton and Patrick Adams, they hadn't spoke for more than 35 years so it's like a big reunion.

Ady from Ace/Kent has hooked up with her so they'll be able to chat about the GWP history and fill in some missing details.

Maydie is also featured in the new issue of David Cole's 'In The Basement' magazine so it all seems to be happening at once. She's been a bit overwhelmed by the activity but she's enjoying it.

And now two UK gigs have been confirmed so far, the Scottish weekender and other gig which was already pending confirmation (I don't think it's been publicised yet).

Maydie's facebook page is here: http://www.facebook....1100722&sk=wall

A philly gem of Debbie's can be found on the new "Spirit of Philadelphia 3" compilation cd as well.
