Baby Washington - Only Those In Love

Certain singers get all of the play, while others are neglected. The process by which this occurs is totally unfair. 

Certain female singers were associated with men who were themselves dynamic forces in the music business. Bandleaders with important careers as record producers and A&R men, business savvy guys who could keep a great band together, meet the payroll, and deliver hit after hit, year after year, for multiple acts. Those women had an advantage, and we remember all of their names. I'm not mentioning any names right now. 

Baby Washington did not have that advantage, and that is unfortunate for the world. She's one of the greats. She's still alive, seventy-seven years old as I write this. Jeanette, aka Baby, aka Justine, I love you, and I wish you the best of good luck.
