About this item

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!

Inspiration Information 45th anniversary limited edition is available as 1500 individually numbered copies on flaming (yellow & orange marbled) vinyl.


Andy says: All you need to know about this beautiful record is that it was a massive influence on none other than Prince, and in a normal world would have propelled Shuggie Otis onto world super stardom ! Think a gentler, subtler Sly Stone. Stunning.
