Every Home Should Have One is a studio album by R&B/jazz singer Patti Austin. Released on Qwest Records in 1981, it includes the number-one hit duet with James Ingram, "Baby Come to Me", and the title track, which peaked at number 55 on the Billboard Hot 100. She also scored a hit with "Do You Love Me?"

The vinyl/cassette mix of the album differs from the CD mix. With the CD version some tracks are remixed, e.g. track 4 gains overdubs, and/or edited, e.g. track 5 loses the fade-in intro.[1]
