Baby Huey-The Baby Huey Story:The Living Legend

I figure I'll wrap up the postings on my favorite day with another favorite. And perhaps it's even sweeter knowing that this beautiful fat ass is another Chicagoan (well born in Indiana but moved there later). Just look at that cover. The picture alone is worth the download, right? Originally appearing on Curtis Mayfield's short lived Curtom label, this is a great piece of Chicago psych-soul. I guess it wouldn't surprise you to hear that the 400lb heroin addicted Huey only lived to 26. But his sole album, which has been sampled to death, definitely proves this big'n was blowing some minds for real.
