February 22, 1985 – “You Give Good Love” was released 38 years ago today!
“Her first recorded song ‘You Give Good Love’ was a one-take vocal. We were all in the studio in awe. …There’s Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and then Whitney Houston. Everyone is still trying to copy those three.” – Gerry Griffith, head of A&R at Arista Records at that time (who brought Whitney to Clive Davis’ attention)
