Bluzian Who all out there has (listened to) the brilliant Shuggie Otis
record?? (Inspiration Information. circa 71)?

FYI: Shuggie's old man is Johnny "Willie & the HandJive" Otis
for those die hards.. anywaze.. Shuggie's record is deep and
thick.. so many layers.. brilliantly produced.. it's very
soulful and jazzy.. For 1971, he was truly ahead of his time.
The vibes and spirit and overall groove of the record is
heartwarming and meloncholy at the same time..

PS: It's a great record to fuck to!! ;-)

Annie415 For those in Southern California, he'll be performing for free outside at the Santa Monica Pier Thursday 6/27 7:30-9:30pm. There's probably an opening band.

gotdablouse Surprised you dind't mention that he supposedly turned down a spot with the Stones in 1974, through Billy Preston I believe !

His fabulous LP was rereleased last year by David Byrne's label. To celebrate this second shot at success, he played a horrendous and unrehearsed concert at the Warfield in San Francisco. Quite sad really...

Bluzian Oh really????

1) yes, I knew he was playing in Santa Monica on Thursday!

2) I know he is'nt in great health..but, did you actually
go see the show? Could you *PLEASE* tell me more about
it? Setlist maybe? Bluesy? Was it really shitty? Hmm...

3) I didn't know that David Byrne was behind Luka Bop? I
happen to think that that double-cd is fucking brilliant!
It's on my top ten desert island records!! hehe

Cant Catch Me Hey, cool, I've been meaning to recommend Shuggie Otis on this board for a long time. The liner notes to the reissued "Inspiration Information" Shuggie CD do say he turned down an offer to take Mick Taylor's place, although I'd never heard about that before.
But check out the CD, it's fantastic, man! Real trippy, but with a solid, soulful groove.
