Anyone have memories of Cathie Taylor. She had several records on Capital in the 1960s, appeared on Shindig and in the film Hootnanny Hoot. Reportedly she had no hit 45s or lps but won the Acadamy of Country Music Most Promising Female Artist award and later Top Female Artist award, all on the basis of TV appearances. Ring any bells?

A quick google found this info

A young folk singer named Cathie Taylor was featured on Tennessee Ernie's TV show #99 on February 19, 1959. She sang "Turn Around" and did a duet with Ernie on "Froggie Went A-Courtin'". Other guests on that show were Caesar Romero and the group Top Twenty.

http://rcs.law.emory.edu/rcs/artists/t/tayl3000.htm

http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/pretty-CATHIE-TAYLOR-strong-vg-lp-on-CAPITOL-1961_W0QQitemZ180112834267QQihZ008QQcategoryZ306QQcmdZViewIt

She apparently first recorded for Toppa ("The Tree Near My House"/"Two Straws and a Soda" [Toppa 1006, 1959]), then was signed to Capitol (Ernie Ford's label) where she released two LPs in 1960: A Little Bit of Sweetness [Capitol ST-1359] and The Tree Near My House [Capitol ST-1448]. She had a single on Capitol in 1961 "Bobby Boy"/"I'll Never Graduate from You" [Capitol 4565].

In 1962, Cathie appeared on the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans show "National Horse Show from the Cow Palace in San Francisco" with a group as "Cathie Taylor and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police."

On May 17, 1963, she starred as a singer in the Alfred Hitchcock Hour feature "Run for Doom".

Cathie Taylor showed up on an 1963 MGM folk comp (Hootenanny Hoot, MGM SE-4172) which was the soundtrack from a film of the same name where she guest starred, and then in 1964 on Reprise with the LP Cathie Taylor Sings of the Land and of the People [Reprise RS-6121].

She appeared on Shindig on September 1, 1965, and sang "Around the Corner."

By 1965, she was on Gene Autry's TV show singing country songs. She received The Academy of Country Music's Most Promising Female Artist in 1966, then in 1967 the Top New Female Vocalist of the Year award, and in 1969 the Top Female Vocalist Award. Strangely, she never had hit 45s or LPs on the country charts, but her fame came from TV. There's a 1965 photo of her (with Billy Mize) at the bottom of the Gene Autry Melody Ranch web page:

http://www.autry.com/html/geneautry/television/television_mrktla.html

She later had a couple of country singles for Columbia, including "Baby, Baby, Have You Got Cheatin' On Your Mind" (The Answer Song To "Woman, Woman")/"In Case of a Storm" [Columbia 4-44459, 1968] and "It's a Long Drop From a Dream"/"A Habit I Can't Break" [Columbia 44714]. She toured as a country artist as late as the early-to-mid 1970s.

By the mid-1970s, Cathie Taylor had three Christian albums out on Pat Robertson's HouseTop label from 1975-1977, and regularly appeared on his TV show, "The 700 Club."

See HouseTop discog at:

http://www.bsnpubs.com/christian/housetop.html


This, as far as a singing career, is probably "what happened to her." I count six complete LPs and some appearances on VA comps, as well as some singles and a slew of TV appearances.

Joe and Villan, thanks. The links cited seem to be all the internet has on the subject. I also sent an inquiry to a d.j. who plays vintage country on a Little Rock radio station. He had nothing but was going to check with a friend. Cathie went from folk to country to gospel so she seems to be a survivor. There has to be something somewhere.

Cathie is my mother-in-law and she is doing great. She still sings in church and just did a cd of kids songs that were sung to her and that she sang to her daughters. She did go to gospel music and then got out of the music business completely when she got married and had kids.

Rob, Thanks for posting the info on the Utube video and Villan thanks for the blue clicky. She has quite a voice. I can see why people made a fuss over her. I had missed this performance in my previous searches.

Rob, I've sent you an email. The reason I first posted this is because I had been in contact with someone doing research on singers and musicians who had ties to Arkansas. They had her name and some information from the internet, and little else at the time of the first post nearly three weeks ago. We did get some helpful responses here and contact with Cathie and her family would be very valuable. I have a lot of faith in Mudcat and am witnessing again the reasons.

If you are interested in contact with the magazine email me at elliott.hancock@gmail.com and I will give you the contact info.

Arkie, I got your email and sent Natalie my contact information.
All, happy to be on board. It is kind of strange to hear people talking about Cathie's music career and especially to see her on youtube because to me she is Cathie my mother-in-law and Grandma to my kids. She rarely talks about her days in the music business though she does have a pretty cool scrapbook.
One of my greatest joys is listening to Cathie sing songs to my kids either during playtime or when it is naptime. I can't tell you how many times that I have had a normal conversation with Cathie when something in the conversation reminds her of a song lyric and the next thing you know, Cathie is singing that song. Once a singer, always a singer I guess. :)

I've GOT that Hootenanny Hoot on a DVD somewhere! I recorded it off of TCM and liked it well enough to keep it. The story is minimal, mostly just an excuse to string the music together, and that's pretty much all good.

I think I did read somewhere that Judy Henske pretty much was unhappy with her participation in it. I'm a little vague on that point, though.

I'm not going to school tomorrow, so I'll see if I can dig it up and send it to Arkie. No promises, though.

There was a female folk singer in the '60's and I can't remember her name but off her album there was a song she sang that had words that went "I'm in the gutter with man" and another one about ringing the bell for the salvation army. Is anyone out there familiar with those songs at all?

I found an album today in a thrift store - Cathie Taylor in Concert on Mon Ami records. It is a live concert at the Mon Ami folk cabaret - Friday Feb 23rd, 1962 The reason I picked it up is the hear her sing Stan Jones "Ghost Riders in the Sky". Love that song :-)

Someone recently started a Cathie Taylor - Folk Music group over on Yahoo. The address is http://us.rd.yahoo.com/evt=42879/*http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Cathie_Taylor_Folksinger

It is nice to see people remember my mother-in-law in this way. She just completed a Gospel Cd called Praising my Savior. I'll be posting some of the songs as I have time.

Cathie Taylor briefly had a hit in South Africa in the mid sixties with a song called "Tell me why". I have the 45 single. The flip side is "The fisherman of Bodensee". It was issued in South Africa under the Capitol lable

Cathie recorded one of my earliest songs called, "Bobby Boy," I think it was on Capitol Records. I'm working on a retrospective of my songs and she is one of my earliest (and fondest) memories. If anyone is in touch with her, please say hi and give her my best.
