Shuggie Otis – ‘Rainy Day’
taken from Inspiration Information (Epic, 1974)
Thanks to the magnificent O-Dub I’ve broken my Shuggie Otis duck and am finally getting into a catalogue of truly great music. Inspiration Information seemed the obvious jump-off point due to the presence of ‘Strawberry Letter 23′, but the whole album is breathtaking. The irony of picking ‘Rainy Day’ on the most beautiful day of the year so far was the only reason for its selection: it’s all amazing.
