Nobody could have suspected the path that Clarence Henry Reidwould take during the 1960s. During this time he worked asa singer/songwriter and producer for the likes of KC & TheSunshine Band, Bobby Byrd, Gwen McCrae, and various others.He would also release his own compositions, including the deepsoul classic "Nobody But You Babe", which would become asampling favorite of KRS-One, Erykah Badu, DMX, and more.Though Reid maintained a reputation as a consummateprofessional among the romantic soul crowd, outside ofhis day-job he turned a complete 180, writing and performinghumorous, deliberately raunchy and sexually-explicit parodies ofsongs. These parodies would be relegated strictly to friends atparties, and wouldn't see a wide audience until the 1970s hit.In 1971 Reid would gather a collection of studio musicians,including famed R&B sidemen Timmy Thomas & Benny Latimoreon keys, and Little Beaver on guitar, to finally commit theseparodies to wax. In order to protect his identity as a songwriterReid took on the stage name Blowfly, and dressed as a comicbook super villain for live performances and photos. From therehe would release numerous studio albums of similarly crudeparodies throughout the 70s and 80s, which were enormouslypopular as party records. These records would also go on tobecome a wealth of sampling fodder for artists like Jurassic 5, ThePharcyde, DJ Shadow, Eazy-E, and many more, as well as leadReid to collaborate with artists as varied as soul contemporaryKing Coleman, to former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, toganja-centric rapper Afroman.The beginning of this explicit journey started with the debut albumThe Weird World Of Blowfly. Across 16 tracks Reid and hiscollective of session musicians would turn classic soul and R&Bhits by the likes of James Brown, Otis Redding, and Sam & Dave,and twist them into bluntly graphic parodies, regularly divingheadlong into realms sexual, scatological, beyond naughty.
