Favourite songs by Gino Washington (Tomangoes)?

14 posts in this topic

What a  talented guy Gino Washington is?

We know Gino even had his own tv show.

What does Tomangoes actually mean?

Obviously he made a few tunes, and here are some great ones.

My favourite by Gino is his first release: "I'm A Coward", then 2nd is "Come Monkey With Me", 3rd is "Romeo".  But, really, I like almost everything he recorded.

Puppet On A String is class.

Gino also owned a wig store off Grand River Avenue.

I sat next to him at a free Little Richard concert 12 years ago.

Only in Detroit!

[I'm guessing Tomangoes has something to do with the fruit - African connections?]

Agree with Mick B - Like my baby + (the unisued) Ohh baby. Plus 'I'll Be Around'. Also like 'Do You Have That Soul'...and 'I Lost You Girl' (which is him apparently?)

Hi David,

That's very interesting that Gino owned a wig store.  With him having a release on Dewtroit's W.I.G. Records  ("Romeo"), I have to think that Wig was his label, or, that he was, at least, a part owner.

Wonder how many of these acetates he had made as he gave one to Rob Thomas - white label on it was written 

"Oh Baby - To Rob love Gino"

Rat Race and whirlpool, not too keen on his others.

Whirlpool is just right for some of the upfront venues now.
