Born in Blackpool, Prior moved in her teens to St Albans, where she befriended the young Donovan Leitch and Mac MacLeod in The Cock pub. She later formed a duo with MacLeod called ‘Mac & Maddy’. She became a roadie for visiting American musicians, including Reverend Gary Davis. They gave her useful advice about singing British folk songs instead of American songs.
Maddy’s father, Allan Prior, was co-creator of the police drama Z-Cars, and wrote Stookie, a 6-part series for television, about a boy with his arm in a sling. Maddy sang the title song, which was released as a single in 1985. It reappeared on the Steeleye Span album A Rare Collection 1972 – 1996

Warning !THIS BAND IS LOUD & NOT FOR ALL TASTES, SO IF THERE IS ANY SOUNDS THAT YOU WISH FOR ME TO POST,,,PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
Back in the late 60’s, [’68-69′] and early 70’s there hall near to where I used to live, actually it was in the neighboring town. Here they used to have regular gigs, I cannot remember for sure whether it was weekly of monthly. But my friends and I went there every time and here we saw many bands and some that went onto become big and well known bands. This band is and was one of the biggest, and still gigging
This band as we first knew them as Spice, did become friends to us at the time. We went to a gig of theirs when they later became Uriah Heep and we got invited back stage, which was an experience.
The Landsdowne Tapes recording was named probably after the home area of one of the members Lee Kerslake, who came from the town of Bournemouth. Which was not far from my home of the time. A part of the town is called Landsdowne road and Landsdowne Square. If I remember right there was a recording studio based here, but I cannot swear my memory is correct.
previously unreleased material of the pre-Uriah Heep band.
I have the lead guitarist Mick Box as a friend on Facebook so I am able to keep up with their gigging, which at the moment is mostly in Europe.
