More from Laura Taylor's web site where she continues to list her performances and history:
Laura signed her first record deal in Miami, Florida with Criteria Studio’s own label– Good Sounds Records – whose parent company and distributor was T. K. Records. Criteria was the studio where the Bee Gees recorded the famous Saturday Night Fever soundtrack and many of their other hit songs. Laura not only met the Bee Gees, but their back-up band recorded Laura’s first album with her “Dancin’ In My Feet”. This album opened the door for Laura’s dual talents as singer and songwriter. The title song, Dancin’ in My Feet, became the theme song for the nationally syndicated TV show Disco Magic and rose to #4 on Billboard’s national disco chart. Three of her original songs – Lady Scorpio – All Through Me – and Some Love – also made Billboard and Record World charts. (Google Laura Taylor Disco for songs and articles).
While at Criteria, Laura worked with many great producers, artists, and bands including George Martin (The Beatles producer), and the band Firefall. Firefall’s producer, the esteemed Tom Dowd, presented Laura with her first platinum album for her background vocal work on their Elan album
During this same period, Laura electrified Miami Dolphins fans with her a cappella version of The Star-Spangled Banner on three separate occasions.
Laura’s success as a songwriter continued when Diana Ross included Laura’s original composition Think I’m In Love on her Why Do Fools Fall in Love album. The song was also selected as the flip-side of Ms. Ross’ single release. This resulted in Laura being presented with her second platinum album. Enthusiasm for Laura as both a singer and songwriter led to appearances on Midnight Special, The Dinah Shore Show, and The Merv Griffin Show (three times)where she showcased several of her original songs.

A beauty with voice to match, plus a fine jazz feel, Laura Taylor treated all concerned to a varied program that included requests and a world-class treatment of The Nearness of You.”
