DEBBIE TAYLOR - COMIN' ON DOWN


DEBBIE TAYLOR
Comin' On Down

Debbie Taylor was a black American female vocalist whose short recording career between 1968 and 1975 saw her produce some of the most impassioned vocal performances ever committed to vinyl.

Her sudden unexplained departure from the music industry and the lyrical content of her last ever recording "I don't wanna' leave you" have been the cause of much speculation with parallels having been drawn with a lot of the mythology surrounding blues guitarist and singer Robert Johnston.

Little is known about her background, date of birth etc, but she has achieved iconic status with fans of soul music due, in the main, to her pairing / partnership with songwriter / producers David Jordan and Patrick Adams

Taylor's tenure with Today was another short stint. It resulted in the album Comin' down on You, and one single released from it. Many regard this as her most productive / prolific period as a singer. Her collaboration with Adams, the then manager / producer and co-writer for label mates Black Ivory, resulted in her covering the track "No if's, and's or but's".

ENJOY!!!
