Baby Washington was born in Bamberg, South Carolina, and raised in Harlem, New York. In 1956, after recording with a couple of girl groups, she signed to Donald Shaw's Neptune Records as a solo soul performer. Fryers presents two favorite sides from this early era. "Move On" is a gritty rock 'n' roll R&B floorfiller that's been a tried and tested spin. With its car-racing lyrics, it's more rockabilly aesthetic still treads into soul. "Medicine Man" is another smash with sparse, moody instrumentation and backstreet sleaze. Played on the R&B and popcorn dancefloors --a perfect warm-up or warm-down to any good night.
