Liner Notes
PRODUCED BY CURTIS MAYFIELD *PUBLISHED BY CAMAD MUSIC, BMI DIRECTOR OF CREATIVE MERCHANDISING & PACKAGING: MILTON SINCOFF. ART DIRECTION: MICHAEL MENDEL BABY HUEY (JAMES THOMAS RAMEY) WAS MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER ENTERTAINER TO ME AS HIS MANAGER. JIMMY, AS I REFERRED TO HIM WAS A FRIEND WHO WAS VERY SINCERE AND SENSITIVE TO THE WORLD AROUND HIM. I KNEW HIM DURING HIS UP AND DOWN PERIODS, HIS HEARTACHES, HIS PROBLEMS, HIS LOVES, FEARS AND WORRIES. I KNEW HIM AS A VERY REAL PERSON AND NOT JUST ANOTHER PUPPET TO BE DANGLED ON A STAGE. HE SAID WHAT HE FELT AND TRULY FELT EVERYTHING HE SAID. JIMMY'S BIGGEST PROBLEM WAS THAT HE LET TOO MANY PEOPLE LEAN ON HIM WITH THEIR PROBLEMS EVEN THOUGH HIS OWN WERE SO GREAT. THIS DEPRESSION BROUGHT ON HIM WAS JUST TOO GREAT FOR ONE MAN TO CARRY NO MATTER HOW BIG YOU ARE. JIMMY LOVED SO MANY THINGS BUT, I GUESS HIS GREATEST LOVES WERE HIS FAMILY, ESPECIALLY HIS MOTHER, HIS GIRL LYNN, AND CLOSE FRIENDS, AND MOST OF ALL HIS BAND THE "BABYSITTERS". I REMEMBER SO MANY OF THE GOOD TIMES, THE LAUGHS, THE EXCITEMENTS WHEN HE FIRST APPEARED ON NATIONAL TELEVISION ON THE MERV GRIFFIN SHOW, HIS SMILE, THE WAY HE RAPPED TO HIS AUDIENCES ABOUT LIFE AROUND THEM, PARIS FRANCE, RECORDING SESSIONS, AND OF COURSE HUEY BEING HUEY. THEN, I REMEMBER THE SAD TIMES WHEN HE WEPT TO ME LIKE A LITTLE CHILD AND CONFIDED SO MANY THINGS TO ME. HE WISHED THAT THE PEOPLE THAT HE KNEW AND LOVED, HIS KIND OF PEOPLE, WOULD WAKE UP TO THE DANGERS OF DRUGS. I ONLY HOPE THAT YOU THE LISTENER CAN THROUGH THIS ALBUM HEAR AND LISTEN TO HUEY THE MAN, THE ARTIST, AND MOST OF ALL A FELLOW HUMAN BEING, AND THAT THROUGH THIS BEGINNING HIS NAME AND HIS MUSIC WILL GO ON FOREVER WITH HIS BAND THE BABYSITTERS. IN CLOSING TO JIMMY (HUEY), YOU'LL ALWAYS LIVE FOREVER IN THE HEARTS OF EVERYONE WHO LAUGHED WITH YOU, CRIED WITH YOU, AND THAT PART OF US THAT DIED WITH YOU. MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
