Shuggie Otis is one of the great artists who's never gotten his due.
He'll be re-issuing his classic album Inspiration Information along with a new disc of unreleased material called Wings of Love.
Check out this great video of Shuggie talking about his career and everything from learning how to play guitar from his father to writing songs like "Strawberry Letter 23" with a Maestro Rhythm King as a drum machine and becoming a perfectionist in the studio as he orchestrated songs like "Aht Uh Mi Hed".

Lots of cool images:
My highlight is at the end when Shuggie says, "I'm not gonna stop now. I'm very happy about it."
