2019 EU reissued on coloured 180g LP-Some say this album is decades ahead of its time – so much so it would fit into the Trip Hop genre with ease. We'll let you decide. All we know is we can't stop playing it! Shuggie played every instrument himself here, giving us a look into his psyche: soothing, subtile, harmonious and elegantly funky.

Compared at the age of 15 to Hendrix and the great Kings of blues guitar (B.B., Albert, Freddie), the young phenom, Shuggie Otis went on to make two expansive, genre-defying, deeply curious albums, 1971's Freedom Flight and 1974's Inspiration Information. The records, essentially crafted as a one-man band, floored Sly Stone, gave the Brothers Johnson their most enduring hit ("Strawberry Letter 23") and predated the stylistic synthesist Prince by half a decade.

This beautiful Shuggie Otis album went largely overlooked at the time of its release in 1974. Which is a shame, because it's one of those albums that you hear new things in every time it's on the platter. 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. We'll let you decide, all we know is we can't stop playing it!
