Shuggie Otis. A man who delved into LSD consumption only a few times but shaped some of the most interesting psychedelic soul to come out of the 1970's, it is music that Dr Dre would use later to sample for his G-Funk, J Dilla with Donuts and then later, Kanye West.
Shuggie plays guitar, bass, organ, piano, vibraphone and percussion on the album Inspiration Information The album is archetypal in the sense of it's artists musical identity but 'Ahh Uh Mi Hed' is a full on highlight and church like moment. The instrumentation of harp and strings are full of sunshine filled holiness whilst Shuggie holds court with his soulful vocal abilities throughout.
Ripperton has also done his own re-edit of 'Aht Uh Mi Hed' modernising the record only slightly and keeping the original feel throughout.
Classy, cool and sleek.
