Folksinger, humorist, satirist, social commentator, composer of childrens' songs, and writer of monologues and poems ...
Jeremy Taylor is all of these.
But above all he is loved by South Africans for his wry mastery in song and sketch of our idiom and idiosyncrocies.
His visit to South Africa this year is a joyful homecoming for the "Wait-a-Minim" songmonger who started a whole folk revival and songwriting movement here in the early 60's.
Jeremy is 39. Bom in England, he was educated at Newbury Grammar School, and Trinity College, Oxford, where he read French and Italian.
in 1959 he came to Johannesburg to teach at St. Martin's School, Rosettenville. His evenings were spent singing folksongs in coffee bars, and writing short stories and plays. At the suggestion ot painter Harold Rubin, Jeremy began to write his own songs and went on to co-compose and feature in the legendary folk review "Wait-a-Minim".
His song "Ag Pleez Deddy" rocketed to No. 1 in the charts, and assured Jeremy his place in South African hearts. After touring South African and Rhodesia for two years, "Wait-a-Minim" went to London's West End premiere it played at the Fortune Theatre for a further two years.
Jeremy then taught English Language and Literature at Eton for a short while before taking full time to the folk circuit in England.
He is well known on T.V. in Britain, and his songs have been commissioned and used in many documentaries and comment programmes. He has written songs for and worked with Cat Stevens. Together with John Wells he also wrote the theme to Joan Littlewood's long running production "Mrs. Wilson's Diary".
Since 1970 Jeremy has been refused permission to enter South Africa. His return visa was granted after lengthy negotiations by Des and Dawn Lindberg, who pledged 4 years ago to get his "ban" lifted.
As one whom South Africans regard with warm affection as their own songster, Jeremy makes a welcome and triumphant return to the South African stage, fresh from his highly successful West End solo season at the Boulevard Theatre in Soho.

Recorded live at the New Arena Theatre, Johannesburg, October 1979

A few months ago, a hard-up school teacher, singing in a tiny Johannesburg Coffee Bar.
Today, South Africa's top English ballad singer, whose name is a by-word wherever people gather around record players.
That's the fantastic success story of 24 year old Jeremy Taylor- a story shown in the rocketing 80,000-disc sales of "Ag Pleez Deddy".
This amusing, rollicking ditty, sung in an original blend of English Afrikaans accents, has won the hearts of South Africa.
lt has done so because this Ianky, likeable Britishborn singer has found the magic secret of making South Africans laugh at themselves.
But there's more - far more - to Jeremy Taylor, than "Ag Pleez Deddy" as you will gather from this disc.
On it are five brand-new Jeremy Taylor numbers, ranging from the slow personal essay of "Confession", to the express train Kwela session-of
"Tsotsi Style".
He appears in a bewildering number of guises: As a road-side philosopher, crusader against war, friend of society's outcasts and foe of its stuffed shirts.
Whether he is singing of a Johannesburg Lift Girl's Trevails, a tiny tot's confusion in a strange adult world, broken love or a Tsotsi's mis-adventures, his numbers all have one thing in common - they are South African to the core.
Educated at Oxford, there is however nothing highbrow about Jeremy Taylor. Quite the contrary.
In "The Northern Side of Town" he mercilessly lampoons Johannesburg's cigar-smoking, starchedshirt high society.
Sung in a hilariously pompous Colonel Blimpish accent, it is a withering indictment of the snobbery of idle rich.
But his satire is not destructive. He laughs with, not at his victims.
His fun-making is kindly rather than vicious.
Take for example his "Lift Girl's Lament", which tells, with gentle but penentrating humour, of a hard-pressed lift girl in a big Johannesburg Department Store.
Or, "Hennie Van Saracen", the tale of a young man who is suddenly called up by the army.
Hennie, a typical crazy mixed up kid gets into various scrapes and ends up being expelled from the forces.
Yet Jeremy Taylor can also laugh at his own calling. The last numberf boisterous "Rock In Retrospect" is a delightful skit on the rock and roll cult, with brilliant take-offs of Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard. A high-light ofthis L.P. is the exciting Kwela number "Tsotsi Style" (sung with penny-whistler Lemmy Special) in the pepped-up rhythm of Johannesburg's African townships.
This develops into an all-in session with
Jeremy Taylor shouting "Lethi Flutiami!" (Hand me my flute!), as he winds up playing a penny-whistle duet with Lemmy.
In these songs Jeremy Taylor reveals himself as an authentic grass roots South African folk singer - a spinner of tales about ordinary people, their troubles and triumphs, their joys and heartbreaks.
He is our only Burl Ives or Josh White - with one big difference: everyone of his songs is his own original creation.
What is more, they are sung in collegial language to the accompaniment of clever and dramatic guitar playing.
But Jeremy is no robot-like recorder of what he sees. He has a very definite point of view.
You can see this not only in his "The Northern Side of Town" but also in "Confession" where he hits out at the folly of nuclear war and society's narrowmindedness.
"Confession" has already been heard in the recordbreaking revue "Wait a Minim". The other numbers are all new. - CHARLES BLOOMBERG - omslag

urgent note to 'wait a minim l.p.' owners YOU ARE NOW READING THE BACK COVER . . . THE FRONT COVER IS PROBABLY ON THE OTHER SIDE: - N.B. (for directions for turning over please see the other side).
the father of 'wait a minim' is not on the pretty picture . . .his name is leon . . . anyway he said "let's do a show ahem! of sorts" and we said ". . ."
so andrew and paul tracey got some folk and sang them (while they were humming strumming and drumming) and jeremy taylor wrote some songs and got the blues . . . and zelide jeppe sat down and started dancing . . . and jeanette james started . .. and michel martel started yodelling in tamil . . . and marina christelis started her best hibiscus but was told to put it down . . . and i practised the fast draw and kept my mouth shut (under intimidation).
then leon (surname gluckman i know because he signs my pay cheque) anyway leon started thinking ( - ? - ) and came up with the net result 'wait a minim' and he said "i think this is funny" and we said ". . ."
then we had this opening night and the people sitting out front also said ". . ." and the critics got very friendly and said ". . .?" (which makes a change) and here we are.
you will be pleased to note that this record has two sides and a hole in the middle and it will never need cleaning ('wait a minim' does not get dirty) for those who don't like it it will be noticed that this lp is easily changed into a dog biscuit after which it can be folded into three corners and used as a handkerchief which you may wave at stray minims without hurting our feelings . . . kendrew lascelles. - omslag
