Shuggie Otis: Shuggie's Boogie: Shuggie Otis Plays The Blues (CD)
(Music On CD/Sony) 12 tracks
Shuggie Otis, perhaps best known as the son of legendary bandleader Johnny Otis, is serious about his guitar playing. Shuggie started playing guitar at the age of two and started playing professionally with his father's band at eleven. He often dressed up with dark glasses and a fake moustache so that he could play in nightclubs with his father's band.
Shuggie became a master of the blues and is the composer of "Strawberry Letter # 23", a big hit for the Brothers Johnson in 1977. Shuggie recorded some albums, played some tracks on Frank Zappa's "Hot Rats" and then simply retired. At the age of 22!
Sit back and enjoy the blues. And remember how young Shuggie was when he played that.
