Shuggie Otis’ career began long before that as a child prodigy blues guitar player with his father’s Johnnie Otis Show. The elder Otis was an influential R&B DJ, A&R man and artist in his own right.
After two blues rock albums for Epic Records, Inspiration Information was something quite different as Otis will explain today. At the time Shuggie fell in love with a rhythm machine and recorded the album all by himself. His experimentation followed on the heels of his song “Strawberry Letter 23” from the previous Freedom Flight album being covered by The Brothers Johnson. Shuggie and his band will play the new material live for us today.
