Debbie Jacobs wants your love

Paul Sabu (a powerful protege)
Baltimore native Debbie Jacobs only released two albums but after that she had a few successful dance singles.  Her best tune is the disco classic Don't You Want My Love from her debut l.p. in 1979.  Ironically it was a b side that took off and overshadowed the A side of her maxi single.
She originally worked with the sassy Paul Sabu.
Her singles released as Debbie Jacobs Rock were more on the Hi Nrg tip and definitely less successful their her initial splash as a disco singer.  But her version of Maybe This Time from 1982 was the definitive one at The Saint (you can grab one on Discogs for a mere $500).  Unfortunately it ended up not being officially released and was only to be found on a very limited release promo only single.  I wrote about this a few years ago and you can check that out by using the search function up above.
