Stoop Down Baby

Politically incorrect blues with Chick Willis.

Stoop Down Baby... Let Your Daddy See is quite possibly the single most offensive record I've ever seen. Going for laughs at a time when ribald sexist humor was somewhat more acceptable, bluesman Chick Willis devotes the entire first side of this album to a 21-minute rendition of the title track. Stoop Down Baby consists entirely of Willis making one degrading remark about the female genetalia after another, with a live (?) audience joining in at the end (the audience members having even less tact than Willis when it comes to shouting out the four-letter words).

The small "Some selections may not be suitable for airplay" warning on the back of the jacket is a considerable understatement for an album by the man who "tells the ladies to stoop down, then plays the guitar with his tongue". One wonders what Willis is doing now -- I find myself guessing he must have eventually met a woman who gave him a few things to "stoop down" about himself.

For those wanting to own a copy of this great classic blues album on CD, it's actually available at Amazon.com. Just Google "Chick Willis Stoop Down Baby." Chick is one of the true unsung heroes of the blues! (02-04-2009)

Never heard the song by Chick Willis until now. I have it on a couple of Big Joe Turner albums. It's fun and certainly not as offensive as rap, hip-hop, and Clarence Carter's "Mom's Apple Pie" (10-17-2006)

gmoney (glwoodson@comcast.net) says:

Man I was an assistant Officer Club Manager at Fort Sill Oklahoma back in the 1970's The club usually had some Western Bands to come in and play but when Chick came in and played, the crowd went crazy, the audience was predominately white, but we blacks just had a ball Especially after Chick & I reminenced about our home Atlanta and talked about all the old musicians and clubs. He really tore the house down when he played the Guitar with his teeth. I wanted to book hime for all of the Clubs on all of the bases, but I had to report to DC on military business. I tried to keep in contact but to no avail but I did find the 45 on Laval label, however I do want the full version of Stoop down. Chick if you read this , give me a holler. I am living in Ohio now and on the Broadcasters Hall Of Fame Board of Trustees.

Steve Allen says:
You asked, "One wonders what Willis is doing now." Well, I just came from the Georgia Music Hall of Fame & Museum where Chick and band played one of the greatest sets I have seen. The man is 72, but you would never know it. He may be known for the risque stuff, but that was a minor part of his act, which featured great blues standards from Lightnin' Hopkins, Ray Charles and others. The man is genuine! (04-04-2006)

I saw Chick a couple of weeks ago in the audience at Blind Willie's in Atlanta. I'm glad report that time has not mellowed him and he was as red-blooded as ever! (03-26-2006)

You all know that Chick is goin to prison, right? He's not such a model citizen, and still isn't today... (02-14-2006)

Graham Wellington says:

The title track was aired on Sirius Blues last night...by a female DJ no less. It was the first time I had heard of Chick Willis, or the tune. Thanks for the museum exhibit dedicated to this classic! (01-01-2006)

Dick Tater says:
Wow!! That song is so cool, too bad we can't hear the entire version. But this is still one cool website, everybody!! (10-22-2005)

Mike P says:
Chick Willis' first record was in 1957. He recorded for Ebb Records as Robert Willis. The songs were "Never Let Me Go" b/w "You're Mine" (Ebb 126). (10-10-2005)

Brian BD Bopper (bdbopper@bellsouth.net) says:
Chick Willis is cousin of 50's R&B star, Chuck Willis ("CC Rider", "What Am I Living For" etc)Robert "Chick" Willis actually began recording shortly after his cousin passed away in 1958 (complications due to food poisoning). Chick lives in Atlanta and I think he is co-owner of a blues joint here. (08-30-2005)

Steven C. Barr (stevenc@interlinks.net) says:
This is actually a traditional blues verse, if not a blues song! First, "Race Records" have historically pushed the limits as far as lewdness and "obscenity" have been concerned...and, second, there were a lot of "party" LP's (as dirty as could be gotten away with) made by Black artists...Redd Foxx, Moms Mabley, et al...during the fifties, sixties and seventies!
