Known more for her acting work (Bewitched, The Waltons, Matlock) and her parenting work (Christina Applegate), Nancy Priddy started out as a sixties Greenwich Village folkstress, initially as a member of The Bitter End Singers. She honed her chops contributing backing vocals (uncredited) to 1967’s Songs Of Leonard Cohen.

In ‘68 she released her lone opus You’ve Come This Way Before, produced by Phil Ramone, propelled by the Funky Drummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, and released by Dot Records. It’s a lush journey with a youthful tone reminiscent of Margo Guryan, but showing a wit that suggests she knows more than she’s letting on. All cuts are co-written by Nancy which speaks to its cohesion, as it’s truly a journey to be experienced in its entirety as it ventures into far corners of the musical spectrum, and with the help of Purdie they sew it into one delightful platter. Listentothis.info said of it, “A real powerhouse of a record. Good for fans of Honey Ltd., Dusty Springfield, Jefferson Airplane. Listen in headphones if you can.”
