Shuggie Otis

The fourth and final album by Otis – Inspiration Information – was ignored when originally released in 1974, but rightly lauded as a lost classic when reissued on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label in 2001.

The psychedelic soul album written, performed, arranged and produced by Shuggie was so far ahead of its time that trippy, beatbox-driven experiments such as Island Letter still sounded fresh when sampled by Digable Planets 20 years later.
