So little was heard from long-lost soul hero Shuggie Otis in the three decades since he vanished from the music scene in the mid-’70s that some believed he'd died, so it was a truly wondrous surprise to find the singer returning from the metaphorical grave with a new album, Wings of Love,in 2013. Why the excitement? Otis is the genius behind such sunshine-warm hits like "Strawberry Letter 23" and "Inspiration Information," and you've likely heard snips of his work via samples from the likes of Beyoncé and OutKast.
