The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend is the only album of Baby Huey that has been released to date. It was put together and released in 1971 after his death. The title refers to the "legend" of Baby Huey that survives after his death. Baby Huey was in the midst of recording tracks for his debut album when he died as a result of a heart attack in 1970.

James Ramey (August 17, 1944 – October 28, 1970), better known as Baby Huey, was an American rock and soul singer. He was the frontman for the band Baby Huey & the Babysitters, whose sole LP for Curtom Records in 1971 was influential in the development of hip hop music. A native of Richmond, Indiana, James was the son of Robert and Ernestine Ramey. He moved to Chicago, Illinois at the age of nineteen, and worked with several local bands as a singer.

Baby Huey's only album, released after his untimely death, is titled The Living Legend with good reason. Beyond his unusual appearance, though, he was graced with a stunning, fierce voice on par with Otis Redding and Howard Tate, wailing and howling one moment and oddly tender and sentimental.

I came across this album from James T. Ramey, aka Baby Huey, due to digging into the Curtis Mayfield discography and finding that he had produced this sole album by the Chicago soul heavyweight ( cough ). It’s heavy deep soul that does not disappoint for a single moment. The last track here is a bonus track tagged on to the original album, and is pretty disposable. In fact this is also the best-sounding reissue I have yet heard from that label, whose remasters often sound a little.

It was put together and released in 1971 after his death. A quarter century after its release, The Baby Huey Story went on to become a cult classic among soul musicians and hip-hop fans. Its single "Hard Times" in particular has been sampled many times, by artists such as Ice Cube, A Tribe Called Quest, and Ghostface Killah, and was covered by John Legend & The Roots. Tracklist: 01. Listen to Me 02.
