I don’t care how many times the 1974 Shuggie Otis classic, Inspiration Information, is re-released, I’ll buy a copy. 2001 on Luaka Bop? Check. 2009 180 gram vinyl? Duh. For an album that spent nearly 30 years in obscurity, the last decade has been kind to Inspiration Information.
Almost 40 years after his most famous release, Shuggie Otis is back with new music. Packaged with Inspiration Information, Wings of Love, due in April, contains 14 new songs recorded during Shuggie’s 1975-2000 period of public dormancy.
In the video below, Shuggie recounts his recorded history and talks about the forthcoming release of Wings of Love.
