About Baby Huey & The Baby Sitters
Baby Huey is the quintessential lost soul hero. Taking his name from the animated duck of the late 40's, the indiana-born singer's story is littered with tradgedy, substance abuse and remarkable music. Weighing in at a mighty 350lbs (rising to 400 around his premature death from a heart attack at the age of 26 in October 1970), Huey cut his teeth on the mid-'60's Chicago soul scene, but in 1969 met Curtom boss Curtis Mayfield, who was impressed with the young singer's vocal range (think mid-way between Howard Tate's depth and Sam Cooke's ability to fly).
