This 2xCD reissue of brilliant, reclusive . songwriter Shuggie Otis' 1974 masterwork Inspiration Information includes four extra tracks from that session along with Wings of Love, comprising 14 tracks that Otis recorded between 1975 and 2000. Combined, the collections feel like a parallel universe greatest-hits compilation, from a world where a label embraced Otis’s genius and eccentricity, instead of driving him away. This 2xCD reissue of brilliant, reclusive .

That quarter-century span should be a tip-off that this is not a lean, coherent, purposeful album, but rather a collection of every listenable thing Otis completed over the course of 25 years, and in that sense, it's pretty good. Part of its appeal is that it is so thoroughly out of phase with the present that some songs seem to date either much earlier or much later than their original recording (for instance, the title track "Wings of Love" feels heavily inspired by Todd Rundgren's 1975 classic "Real Man," but apparently wasn't tracked until 1990).

This newly issued, deluxe two-disc set collects Shuggie Otis’ 1974 masterpiece, Inspiration Information, as well as a second disc of previously unreleased material recorded between 1975 and 2000. For many, this set will serve as an introduction to the musician who – for all the critical acclaim, noted influence on peers such as Sly Stone and Prince, and cult-ish admiration from existing Otis converts – was never quite able to channel his obvious talents into the commercial success he probably deserved

Inspiration Information is the third album by Shuggie Otis. Released in 1974 on Epic Records, it reached on Billboard's Top 200 Pop Albums list, and its featured single (with the title of the same name) also reached on the . Pitchfork describes the sound of the album as a combination of "smooth, organ-driven California funk, quasi-new age psychedelia, loungey jazz instrumentals, string interludes".

Originally issued in October 1974, Inspiration Information was reissued in 2001 by David Byrne's Luaka Bop label. In 2013 it was re-released as it is here by Sony Music, with the original album and four previously unreleased bonus tracks, plus the Wings of Love collection of unreleased studio and live material. Shuggie Otis is best known for writing "Strawberry Letter 23," a 1977 hit for The Brothers Johnson.
