Best song from his Curtis Mayfield produced LP, â€œThe Baby Huey Story: Living Legend.â€Â Iâ€™m pretty sure this song is about a heroin addiction:
So many hard times/ Sleepinâ€™ on motel floors, knocking on my brothers door/ Eatinâ€™ spam and Oreos and drinkinâ€™Â Thunderbird babyâ€¦â€
Most of the lyrics have a very dark, morbid and reflective overtone. The lead singer, Melvin â€œDeaconâ€ Jones, died at age 26, you get the sense your dealing with someone well aware of his fate as you listen. High quality music.
â€œIâ€™m a party house Iâ€™m afraid to come outside. Although Iâ€™m filled with love Iâ€™m afraid theyâ€™ll hurt my pride. So I play the part I feel they want of me, and I pull the shade so I wonâ€™t see them seeing me.
