Album Review: Shuggie Otis - Live In Williamsburg (Score: 8/10)

Shuggie-Otis-WILLIAMSBURGSeventies child prodigy Shuggie Otis has re- turned with a bang. Having re-released Inspi- ration Information and its companion Wings Of Love, Shuggie Otis Live In Williamsburg is the album fans have been waiting for. Re- corded during the 2013 Never Ending World Domination Tour, the disc contains “Sparkle City,” “Island Letter” and “Strawberry Letter 23.” Playing with his brother and two sons, Otis gives a raw and impassioned performance with warts and all. Far from being a pitch perfect show, the band communicates Inspiration Information with humanity, soul and psychedelic musicality. – Oscar Jordan
