Some nice soulmusic to change the mood, today’s sound is
one that sticks. Once you’ve heard these tracks a couple of
times, there’s no turning back. They are in your head to stay.
It was only decades later I got to hear these songs again. In
2001 Luaka Bop Inc. came with the cd, ‘Inspiration Information’.
It was when I heard ‘Strawberry Letter 23’ again first time. In
1971 when it first came out it ran the charts in my little country
and when hearing it again, it brought back lots of memories of
those days. On this lp, Shuggie is accompanied by his father
Johnny Otis who also produced the album. Next we have
George Duke who died way to early age 67,in august 2013.
We find Wilton Felder on bass and Aynsley Dunbar on drums
to call a few. Wonderful atmospheric drifting off sounds,
Shuggie wrote Strawberry Letter 23 and played all instru-
ments on it, give it a try and you wont be sorry,
get it & spread it..
