Classic material

Baby Huey, The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend (Curtom 1970)
This is the last of my holiday loot to get posted up .... my man Bob ran across this reissue and thought, "Hey, I bet Dave would be into that." Ding ding! You are correct sir. Huey was a Curtis Mayfield protege who died of a heart attack at age 26, just when he was getting started -- kind of the Big Pun of his day. His album was released posthumously on Mayfield's Curtom label and became a classic in soul, funk and hip-hop circles. "Hard Times" would have fit great on my Streets mix (still up, by the way). Happy MLK Day, one day late.
