In Session Information - Shuggie Otis

In Session Information
The reissue of the 1975 Shuggie Otis album
Inspiration Information last year caused a storm, one of the great
albums and careers that time forgot. A soul album tinged with jazz and
off kilter funk, its DIY approach and lo-fi electronics predicted much
of what would follow at the end of the 20th Century. The album was
recorded at sessions during the period 1972-1974. Before, during and
after this period Shuggie Otis continued his work as a session musician
partly for his father 's (Johnny Otis) ongoing productions at his own
Hawk Sound Studios, where much of Inspiration Information was recorded. What
RPM presents you with is the best of the sessions Otis jnr recorded
around the same period in the same studio with many of the same sidemen.
The specific project Johnny Otis had embarked upon was to record some
of the pioneers of R&B in a modern context for release on the Blues
Spectrum label series. Shuggie was used as session guitarist, pianist,
arranger, writer The music on our compilation is a mixture of blues,
r&b, funk, soul, all recorded in the same DIY lo-fi way at Hawk
Sound studios, across 1973-1977 with many of the same sidemen such as
brass players Jack Kelso, Doug Wintz and Curt Sletten. It represents a
perfect back drop to the famous Inspiration album. The RPM
release comes in a digipack with an essay on Shuggie written by Clive
Richardson, who wrote the notes on the original Blues Spectrum albums
when released in the UK in the early 1970's.
