Move Over James Brown… Baby Huey’s In Town

Baby HueyFloating my boat this week on the wheels of steel, the sole
album by the larger than life Baby Huey: A Living Legend. This is a man that ate
and drugged himself to an early grave, so to try and contain a voice like his
in the studio… well the producer had his work cut out. The man could scream! That
producer, none other than Curtis Mayfield, also penned here the oft-sampled and
heavy groovers ‘Running’ and ‘Mighty Mighty’. This album also contains a
staggering nine minute version of 'A Change Is Going To Come', with a freestyle
monologue in the middle that has to be heard to be believed! I guess you'll
just have to wait till we get another one…
