We heard the wonderful song Give Me Back My Love on the radio this week for the first time ever, listening by chance to a schmalzy station that we generally ignore (SWR4 Rheinland-Pfalz), and were knocked over by the music and the voice of this fantastic song.
How great was our astonishment to find out that Give Me Back My Love by the group Maywood in the album Maywood was recorded way back in 1980 (see the lyrics at their site under Discography, World Wide, Germany, Maywood, Label CNR, Catalogue no. 0030.354.)
Why had we never heard this song anywhere before?
We definitely would put this song on our all-time Top Ten list of songs.
Take a listen….
And, after some research, here is another song, by both Maywoods. Spectacularly good.
Maybe even better, at least optically for sure, than the first….
Late at Night….
Listen, Maywood…is superb, superb!
Update: OK, I’m hooked on these ladies. How about this vibrant song Rio (1981):
and, what can you say about this heart-to-heart song …
I’m in Love for the Very First Time
For us, it is an Alice May and Caren Wood revival. MayWood. Beautiful.
