Freedom Flight, released in 1971, is the second album by Shuggie Otis. The album is every bit as adventurous as Shuggie’s 1974 masterpiece Inspiration Information, although more raw and not as polished.
Produced by Shuggie’s father, Johnny Otis, the album features seven stellar, genre bending cuts, most of which were written or co-written by Shuggie. He also played everything from guitars, bass, organ to various percussion instruments. “Me and My Woman” is one of the funkiest Blues tunes ever recorded.
Additional musicians include Wilton Felder, Stix Hooper, Aynsley Dunbar, Preston Love, George Duke and vocalists Clydie King, Venetta Field, and Shirley Matthews.
