Before the group had a hit single they performed as an opening act for Flash Cadillac, Ike Turner, and Delaney Bartlett. The group’s first big break came in 1972, when they were invited to appear in the exploitation film, Dracula, starring William Marshall.
They were also asked to record three songs for the film’s soundtrack: “There He Is Again”, “What The World Knows,” and “I’m Going to Catch You.” Shortly thereafter, RCA signed the group; their first single, “Freedom For The Stallion”, from the album of the same name, became a moderate hit, reaching #63 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Rock the Boat” was written by Waldo Holmes, who also wrote the Dracula songs, and was released in the U.S. in February 1974 and in the UK in July of that year.
After the success of “Rock the Boat,” the HuesCorporation’s other charted singles on the Billboard Hot 100 included “Rocking’ Soul” (1974, #18), “Love Corporation (1975, #62), and “I Caught Your Act” (1977, #92). Former band member Fleming Williams, who sang the male lead part on “Rock the Boat,” died in the 1990s.
Background informationOrigin Santa Monica, California, United StatesGenres Pop, soul, disco Years active1969–ca. 1980(reunited in the 1990s)Labels RCA Records, Warner Bros. Records Past members St. Clair Lee Fleming Williams Hubert Ann Kelley Tommy Brown Karl Russell Kenny James Before achieving mainstream success they were the opening act for a list of headliners that included Frank Sinatra, Milton Berle, Nancy Sinatra, and Glen Campbell.
The sidemen were Joey Rivera from the Checkmates; Month Lawson; and Bob “Bullet” Bailey, formerly of the Leaves. Bailey, Rivera, and Lawson left the band to form Foodstuff.
The group's name was a pun on the Howard Hughes Corporation, with the 'hue' (a synonym of color '). The band's members at the time of their first album were St. Clair Lee (born Bernard St. Clair Lee, April 24, 1944, San Francisco, California; died March 8, 2011), Fleming Williams (born December 26, 1943, Flint, Michigan ; died February 15, 1998) and Hubert Ann Kelley (born April 24, 1947, Fairfield, Alabama).
The original choice for the group's name was The Children of Howard Hughes, which their record label turned down. Songwriter Wally Holmes founded the group with his friend Bernard St. Clair Lee.
Female singer H. Ann Kelley was found at a talent show in Los Angeles. As a result of notices placed in southern California record stores, Karl Russell turned up.
After their participation in the Dracula -project Karl Russell was replaced by Fleming Williams and the group signed with RCA Records ; their second single for the label, “Freedom For The Stallion”, from the album of the same name, became a moderate hit, reaching #63 on the Billboard Hot 100chart. The third single from the album, Rock the Boat, ” became a #1 hit on the Billboard chart and the group's signature song.
The bass player on the session for “Rock the Boat” was Wilton Elder, not James Jameson as previously reported. “Rock the Boat” was written by Holmes, who also wrote the Dracula songs, and was released in the U.S. in February 1974 and in the UK in July of that year.
After the success of “Rock the Boat,” the HuesCorporation's other charted singles on the Billboard Hot 100 included “Rocking' Soul” (1974, #18), “Love Corporation (1975, #62), and “I Caught Your Act” (1977, #92). The group was unable to duplicate the success of their earlier hits and disbanded sometime around 1980.
Whereas some sources claim the year of disbanding as early as 1978, archive footage of a television special for the Chilean TV in 1979 promoting their performance at the Viña del Mar International Song Festival proves the opposite. Furthermore, in 1980 the HuesCorporation released one last single in the US and a sixth album in at least New Zealand, Argentina and South Africa.
With the renewed popularity of disco music in the 1990s, the group reunited for tour dates and special events, including the PBS special Get Down Tonight: The Disco Explosion. Karl Russell was replaced by Fleming Williams who sang the male lead part on “Rock the Boat”.
In an interview with Gary James, St. Clair Lee said that after some time Williams was brought back into the group and in turn replaced Tommy Brown. Around 1975, Karl Russell rejoined the band taking over the role of lead singer after Fleming Williams had left for good.
James can be seen in the Chilean TV-footage from 1979 promoting their performance at the Viña del Mar International Song Festival and is also shown on the cover of the group's last album “Boogie Me, Move Me” from 1980. In later years, circa the 1990s St. Clair Lee revived the group and recruited Bruce Glover and Elaine Woodard as the new members.
According to the Social Security Death Index, Fleming Williams died on February 15, 1998. Founding member St. Clair Lee died on March 8, 2011, in Lake Elsinore, California.
