Behind the Figures

The Venerable Owner of Blue Lake Records, Rev. Cleotis P. Washington, in his senescent days, just weeks before his death in 1987.

CLEOTIS P. WASHINGTON
(1906-1987)

This revered record entrepreneur began his illustrious partaking as a quartet singer with The Norforlk Jubilee Quartet in 1926. Achieving only minimal success, he soon formed his own record label devoted exclusively to fledgling black singers and musicians. He is generally regarded to be the first black independent record label owner and has penned million-selling records for Amos Milburn, Dinah Washington, The Five Keys and The Clovers. Rev. Washington will no doubt be best remembered for discovering and introducing Clyde Mcphatter and Jackie Wilson to Billy Wand of The Dominoes fame. In 1950 He formed Blue Lake Records, which was extant for fifteen years, but because of his abhorrence of current music styles, he flouted contemporary mores by continuing to record singers and musicians in their accustomed unadulterated purist form. Unfortunately, without the aid of audio gimmicks and synthesizers, his finished product was anachronistic and perhaps too out of vogue for the record-buying public in the mid-Sixties. Thus, another label fallen into desuetude... that is, until its reactivation in 1986, when Feat and Talking Heads. The world was bereft of Rev. Washington on June 7, 1987, but the tradition is being kept alive by his son, Willis D. Washington.
