Baby was a southern rock band from Texas. The band was signed to Lone Starr Records in the mid-1970s. They got the attention of the executives at Mercury Records based on their regional album sales in Texas. The album was remixed and re-released in mid-1975 on Mercury. Baby had a legion of fans in the Midwest and South in 1975-76 and headlined venues like the famed Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa while generating regional radio airplay on the band's first single, "(It's Another) Saturday Night".
The band made just two albums; the self-titled album and the follow-up album called Where Did All The Money Go? released on Chelsea Records in 1976. The second album's title, Where Did All The Money Go?, summed up the feelings for the band that seemed poised for success similar to what other southern rock artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band were having in the mid-70s, but the success never came for them. Recently, the popular song "Baby," by the teen heart throb, Justin Bieber, created a huge surge on the band's YouTube videos. After low sales of Where Did All The Money Go? and a lawsuit with John Waite and The Babys over the rights of the name "Baby(s)", the band quit.
Guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Johnny Lee Schell went on to play on the Grammy winning album Nick Of Time from Bonnie Raitt in 1989. He has played with some of the world's biggest names and continues to produce, write and contribute to many blues-based artists as well as his own solo projects. Recently, Schell's guitar work was with Barbara Blue and her latest blues album, Memphis 3rd And Beale. Late in 2008, bassist/vocalist Stephen Crane and keyboardist Charlie Rouzer, founding members of Baby in the early 70's, reunited to form Texas Blues Runners, a four-piece blues band based in Austin Texas.
