One of the most overlooked music labels to come out of the Chicago blues scene was Bea & Baby Records. They were around from 1959 to 1989, delivering some of the greatest independent blues, gospel, doo-wop and soul music to ever come out of the windy city. The label was led by the one and only Cadillac Baby, who had a knack for finding the diamond in the rough of artists. After the Earwig Music Company purchased the Bea & Baby Records label, Earwig owner Michael Robert Frank felt that this piece of history needed to be told correctly. This began a friendship between Frank and Cadillac Baby, as the two went on to produce a rising hip-hop singer, 3D (Richard Davenport).
