Baby Huey - The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend [Limited Vinyl LP]
Classic recording reissued on vinyl! With a psychedelic brand of soul and a vocal style that drew comparisons to Otis Redding, James Thomas Ramey — aka 300-400 pound Baby Huey — was set to break out of the Chicago scene with the release of his debut album. Unfortunately, his weight and taste for drugs resulted in a fatal heart attack that prevented him from seeing the release of the disc.
Featuring Curtis Mayfield's "Hard Times" and Mighty Mighty" plus a cover of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come," Baby Huey's lone album (recorded in 1970 and released in 1971) has become a sought-after collectible among soul fanatics.
