Essential

Baby Huey's version of "Hard Times" is one of the best tracks I've ever heard. He also gives a powerful rendition of "A Change Is Gonna Come" and "Mighty Mighty" is well worth a listen too. The rest of the album is mostly instrumental and not really in the same league. Still gets 5 stars though for the brilliance of "Hard Times" alone.

Big Man, Big Sound!

I came across this album as a result of "Hard Times" ending up on a snowboard movie soundtrack and what a find!! I don't normally take the time to write any comments, but for this gem it's a must. From the first track you get an idea of how tight a band the Baby Sitters really were, you then get taken on a journey to planet funk and beyond. Reading online about the big man I understand they never took the time out from performing live to record much apart from what we have here, and on Mighty Mighty you get a feel for the stage presence he must have had. Stand-outs for me then woud be Listen to Me, Mighty Mighty, Hard Times, and Running any one of which would make this worthy of 5 stars. Go on enjoy!

Huey's version of A Change is Gonna Come is, alongside The Undisputed Truth's cover of Ball of Confusion one of the sublime moments in soul music history. Psychedelic Soul is a much maligned genre and can be overblown.That's not the case here.. for me the track is too short.

He began performing in Chicago clubs in 1963 with his backing band the Babysitters and soon became a popular concert draw. As the '60s...
