Shuggie Otis – Here Comes Shuggie Otis

Out of stock


‘here comes shuggie otis’ was released when the guitarist and songwriter was only 14. his father, johnny otis, produced the recording, and co-wrote the album with his son. some of the session players include wilton felder, stix hooper, leon haywood, al mckibbon, preston love, and many others, including a chamber string group. shuggie’s vocals were not yet confident, but the groove-heavy tunes and his guitar playing more than compensate. the production is a shape-shifting morass of fades and phasers with lots of space. standout tracks are the baroque psychedelic blues of ‘oxford gray,’ the tough guitar and b3 / piano interplay on ‘funky thithee,’ the beautiful and tender ‘jennie lee,’ the funky horn-driven r&b on ‘hurricane,’ and the shimmering, sacred blues of ‘gospel groove.’
