Baby Washington, Take 2
Yesterday I was speaking about Baby Washington's LP »With You In Mind« (Veep # 16528) from 1968. And I already said that on the back cover of this album there are several photos showing the singer in a park setting. Now, I didn't want to hold back these photos. They come here with two more songs from Baby Washington's LP: The first is her cover of Etta James's hit »At Last« which highlights Baby Justine's beautiful voice. The second song, »I'm Calling You Baby«, is uptempo and clearly made à la mode. It's not particularly original as a tune, but the funkiest you will find on the LP. Both songs were never released as a single.

I am interested in the music, not in the relative rarity of discs. I also listen with great pleasure to Aretha Franklin, because she has the voice of the century. Music is no Faith and therefore has no heretics.
