宝贝Huey - 听我

20世纪60年代, 20世纪70年代, 音乐 •971次观看• 征询意见 在婴儿huey - 听我

现代音乐充满了乐队的故事,他们从未完全实现他们所在的成功,并且可以说出在罕见的灵魂场景上扮演的大部分记录是破碎梦想的声音;记录高希望但却被拒绝的艺术家,但却是一个原因的商业成功。在这里,我们将看看一位艺术家和乐队,他当时从未有过大规模的商业成功,但自从70次进行了抽样,已成为嘻哈民间传说的巨大部分。

宝贝huey故事:生活传奇是一位专辑于1971年发布的柯蒂斯梅菲尔德的悔罪标签(以标签所有者柯蒂斯梅菲尔德和埃德菲尔德乐队的经理命名为梅尔菲尔德的乐队的展示率),但这从来没有陷入困境的情况下没有痕迹几年后重新发现了新生的嘻哈场景,并且已经在数十个版本中进行了抽样。领导专辑发布的故事是我们想要分享的故事,最终是破碎的梦想之一。

宝贝Huey于1944年8月在印第安纳州里士满开始生活,因为詹姆斯托马斯拉梅西。除了患有严重影响他的重量的腺体紊乱外,他的早期是不起眼的,因为他在十几岁时他重视了25石(350磅)。

 

 

1962年,18岁的詹姆斯·拉默赛搬到芝加哥,通过了舞台名称小宝贝(20世纪50年代在美国的巨大而天真的卡通鸭子)。他与吉他手Johnny Ross和键盘Maestro(和小号手)Melvyn'deacon'jones挂钩,并且三重奏开始了一个乐队称自己为宝贝Huey和保姆。乐队在当地的芝加哥现场音乐场景中流行,他们的精力充沛的表演让他们脱颖而出。据说,宝贝Huey可以像詹姆斯布朗一样移动,这对任何人都没有意思,让任何人更不用说他的尺寸。此外,他是通过所有账户,在控制和组织乐队方面是一个非常好的乐队领导者。他们在60年代初进行了四个单一版本 - “乞求我”,“猴子人”,“梅丁”和孩子“和”只是小心“。乐队虽然更加注重他们的现场表演,而且婴儿色调的令人印象深刻(和赤脚!)阶段存在,他们被淘汰了作为一个令人兴奋和迷人的现场乐队。

 

 

As the 1960s moved on the band become steadily more influenced by the newly emerging psychedelic soul scene playing the same circuit as Rotary Connection and becoming particularly influenced by Sly and the Family Stone. Around this time Baby Huey grew an afro, started wearing multi-coloured African inspired robes and began including chant-like, self-referential rhymes; not unlike the rappers who were to follow him a decade or so later. Their sound had moved from energetic 20世纪60年代 rhythm and blues to what could be best described as psychedelic funk rock and Baby Huey’s vocal style drew comparisons with Otis Redding. As a band they played to both white and black audiences alike appealing to garage rock aficionados as well as R&B and psychedelic soul fans.

 

Unfortunately, their focus on live performances instead of time in the recording studio meant they hadn’t released enough material for an album. The upside of this though was that they became a big draw not only on the Chicago live music scene but throughout the States and toured extensively. Such was their popularity they were seen by a member of the Rothschild family who flew the band to Paris to play a family ball. They also had a feature in Vogue magazine which at the time was a rare occurrence for an African American band. In early 1969 their agent, Marv Heiman, convinced Donny Hathaway, who was doing A&R for Curtom Records at the time, to come and see a live performance at the Thumbs Up club in Chicago. Hathaway was so impressed he went to Curtis Mayfield and implored him to see them play the following night. Mayfield duly attended and was blown away by what he saw. He said he wanted to produce and album but not with the band – only with Baby Huey himself. Not surprisingly this caused some tensions and while the band performed on the recording of the album, they soon parted company afterwards.

 

从那些录音会议中出现的专辑被称为婴儿色调故事:生活传奇和特色柯蒂斯梅菲尔德自己的歌曲和Sam Cooke的封面是“改变”将会进来'。遗憾的是,它在1971年初发布了蓬松发布。

 

 

1970年10月28日,婴儿色调在1970年10月28日之后在一个大规模的心脏病发作后在芝加哥汽车旅馆房间。他只有26岁。他沉迷于海洛因,也有饮酒问题,两者都对他的身体造成了致命的伤害。他的体重膨胀到28石,他缺少现场表演,并坚持他在1970年春天参加了他的康复,但不幸的是拯救他是不够的。
尽管避免了专辑信贷,但乐队仍然扮演保姆,除了Chaka Khan的潜望者,而且它没有持续很长时间,她继续前进的芝加哥Funksters Rufus。
婴儿色调故事的释放:生活传奇当时没有看到巨大的商业成功;这张专辑几乎没有困扰图表,很大程度上被遗忘,可能是因为宝贝Huey不在促进它。然而,多年来,它已经成长为与挖掘者,嘻哈爱好者和灵魂爱好者成为一个邪教经典。由口碑和音乐的卓越效果创造的遗产。

 

作为一个有趣的脚注,在她儿子的去世之后,Ramey的母亲正在留下他留下的庄园,她发现当他去世时,他每周薪水为3,500美元 - 每周相当于每周23,000美元或120万美元每年。

如果您可以查看专辑,您将看到为什么它变成了这么邪教。
