Myra Taylor- Take It Easy Greasy

The grease is gone.

Myra Taylor is a superstar. It's just that no one outside of Kansas City knows it. On any given night, the 88-year-old is delivering her salty act to a local audience, as a solo artist or as a quarter of The Wild Women of Kansas City. Taylor began singing professionally- are you ready for this?- in the 1930s. She first recorded the novelty song "Take It Easy Greasy" fifty years ago; this saucy version is from 2001's My Night To Dream. It would take just one television appearance with Oprah, Letterman or the gals on The View for the world to fall in love with Taylor's oversized personality.
