Song of the Week: Baby Washington - There He Is and That's How Heartaches Are Made

There He Is
That's How Heartaches Are Made
Baby Washington not only had a cool name, she also had one hell of a voice. Baby grew up in Harlem and bounced around many labels before she hit her groove for Sue Records. She scored only one hit, That's How Heartaches Are Made in 1963. (We already spun a blue-eyed soul cover of that with Welsh singer, Tawny Reed. Click here to hear that version).

Today we spin Baby Washinton's 1965 double sided gem on Sue Records, There He Is and the heavily orchestrated That's How Heartaches Are Made. In this flipster's opinion, There He Is, the A-Side, is the superior number, but both are great. There He Is was produced by Bert Berns, the cat who wrote Here Comes The Night (click here to hear Lulu's version) and Piece Of My Heart for Erma Franklin (click here to hear that original). 
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
