In early September Margie Day ends her long association with Dot Records and signs with Decca. In October Decca Records takes out ads in the music trade press pushing their commitment in the R & B field. One of their featured records is the new release by Margie Day - "Snatching It Back" and "Do I Look Like A Fool To You" on # 28872. In October, Day with Paul Williams appears at a big show at the Mosque Theater in Newark, NJ along with Fats Domino, Amos Milburn, and Ruth Brown. In the spring of 1954 Margie Day, the Paul Williams band, Amos Milburn, and Charles Brown, set off on a series of one nighters in Texas and the Southwest. Early in 1955 Decca releases "Old Time Lovin" and "I Like What You're Doing". In early 1956 after time out for motherhood, Margie Day tours with The Turbans, Guitar Slim, and Roy Gaines, in a show produced by Joel Turnero. During the spring Day left Decca Records and signed on with Syd Nathan in Cincinnati for King-Federal-DeLuxe. Her first record was on DeLuxe # 6096 - "Something Told Me" and "Dumplin Dumplin".
Margie Day after a turn with Legrand Records in Norfolk, Virginia, retired from the music business after more than a decade. She returned briefly in the late 1960s singing in a modern jazz vocal style, but soon retired again as she was beset by health problems.
