Demetria Taylor – Bad Girl
Delmark DE 814 (2011)
Compact Disc
With Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Big Time Sarah, Eddie Taylor Jr., Shun Kikuta, Roosevelt Purifoy, Greg McDaniel and Pookie Styx.

Bad Girl is the debut CD by blues singer Demetria Taylor, daughter of the legendary Eddie Taylor. Best remembered for his work as the rhythm guitarist for Jimmy Reed, Eddie Taylor also recorded as leader for VJ and had a minor hit with the song “Bad Boy” in 1955. Demetria revisits the song here as a tribute to her late father. But Demetria is not just riding pops’ coattails. At only 38 years young, Demetria won the B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted Blues Diva Contest in 2010, has already performed three times at the Chicago Blues Festival, and guested on two Eddie Taylor CDs. Bad Girl is eleven songs, including “I’m A Woman/Hoochie Coochie Woman”, “All Your Love”, “Goin’ Back To Mississippi”, “When You Leave”, “Big Boss Man”, and a rousing duet with Big Time Sarah on “Wang Dang Doodle”.
