C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Baby Huey

For tonight's Music Club, we've got a song from one of the pioneers of funk and hip hop.

This stuff was being recorded in 1970, which is not nearly the height of funk, but this sounds like the genre in its full glory. That's pretty impressive for a debut album, but unfortunately, it would also be Huey's last, as he would pass away from a heart attack in that same year. However, the legacy didn't stop there, as he would go on to be sampled by hip hop artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to Ghostface Killah, leaving a lasting impression on the genre. His sound would also shape the sound of many of his funk contemporaries at the time, who were just starting out as artists. If you've got any love for funk, this album is a must listen.
