‎[1969]‎
Album: "The Young Mods' Forgotten Story" del 1969 e “Curtis/Live!” del 1971‎

The Young Mods Forgotten StoryCurtis Live


Canzone antirazzista e per l’unità tra bianchi e neri…‎

Mayfield incise questa canzone per la prima volta quando ancora stava con The Impressions nel disco "The Young Mods' Forgotten Story" del 1969.

Il brano è stato anche meravigliosamente reinterpretato dal grandissimo e misconosciuto Baby Huey con i suoi Babysitters nel loro unico album (James Ramey/Baby Huey non ne vide la luce perchè morì di droga l'anno prima, appena ventiseienne) intitolato "The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend" del 1971.
(Bartleby)
Everybody's talking
about this country's state
we get a new power every hour
just about in every christian fate
we're killing up our leaders
it don't matter none
black or white
and we all know it's wrong
and we're gonna fight to make it right

And mighty, mighty spade and whitey
your black and white power
is gonna be a crumbling tower
and we who stand divided
so god damn undecided
give this some thought
in stupidness we've all been caught
there really ain't no difference
if you're cut you're gonna bleed
might I get a little bit deeper
human life is from the semen seed

Now I'm gonna say it loud
I'm just as proud as the brothers too
and just like the rest
I don't want no mess about
who's taking who

Now I'm gonna say it loud
I'm just as proud as the brothers too
and just like the rest
I don't want no mess about
who's taking who

Mi occorre precisare che la "Mighty Mighty" di Baby Huey non è una cover di questo brano degli Impressions, ma un pezzo originale dall'album "The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend", l'unico realizzato da Baby Huey & the Babysitters. Ciò non toglie che quel solo gioiello della band di Chicago, leaderata da quei "180 kg di puro soul" che è stato James Ramey in arte Baby Huey (1944-1970), sia stato prodotto proprio da Curtis Mayfield...
