Pick Another Baby

Carol Hughes

Pick Another Baby

Oxford Music (ASCAP)

Roulette Records


According to Billboard (Feb. 3, 1958 issue) Carol, 15 years old, is singing since the age of two. Sophomore at West Orange (New Jersey) highschool. Has had plenty of TV experience, having appeared on such network favorites as the "Arthur Murray Dance Party", "Dean Martin Show" and many others.

"Pick Another baby" was her third record. She was first on Mercury Records for which she recorded two singles.

A Carol Hughes discography can be found here. But on Corby and Carlton Records, I am sure, that's a different singer (soul/RnB).
