Shuggie Otis – Inspiration Information
Album: Inspiration Information
In 1974, Shuggie Otis released “Inspiration Information”, his third and final album for Epic Records. All the songs were written and arranged by Otis himself, who played almost exclusively every musical instrument on the album (except for horns and various stringed instruments). However, despite its long-awaited impact, Inspiration Information had but one single (the title track) reach the Billboard Top 200.
“Inspiration Information” gained a huge cult following during the 1990s with the emergence of rare groove and acid jazz. It was lauded by such musical luminaries as Prince and Lenny Kravitz.
