Gino Washington // Arthur Alexander

With the myriad of doo-wop and soul tinged low fi summer tunes this summer it seems appropriate to mention Gino Washington, who is one of my favorite soul artists that although lesser known is still incredible nonetheless. Straight out of Detroit, Gino Washington was known for being a bit more raw, soulful and Rock n’ Roll than his contemporaries-his career was only stunted by being drafted to fight in the war just before going national. To my ear he sounds somewhere between Arthur Alexander and younger Sam Cooke, but still stands on his own.

Easily one of the best R&B songs ever penned

  1. Hey there can you mind letting me know which webhost you’re dealing with?
    I’ve loaded your website in 3 completely different internet

    deal quicker then most. Are you able to recommend an effective internet
