Shuggie Otis (son of legendary balladeer Johnny) is quite simply a musical genius. A brillant,imagantive one-mand band who ranks up there with Stevie Wonder,Prince,and the late,great Curtis Mayfield. This album was released in 1974 and sounds more innovative and contempary then most of the music released today! Sly,Prince, Stevie, Marvin, Curtis, Donn. here’s another name that’s not on that list and it’s Shuggie. Want proof? All you have to do is listen to this album. Inspiration Information is one of those musical short circuits that you would not find age and latitude. Destined to be out of every era and particular genre, it is a soul-funk trip as you have tried to define it, which anticipates the seasons dub, funky, drum’n’bass, neopsichedeliche, remaining always and despite, distinct and unchanging.

This beautiful Shuggie Otis album went largely overlooked at the time of its release in 1974.

Shuggie played every instrument here himself, giving us a look into his psyche: soothing, subtle, harmonious and elegantly funky. Some say the album is ahead of its time - so much so it would fit into the Trip Hop genre with ease
