Shuggie's On His Own

uncredited writer, Hit Parader, September 1970

HIS FATHER is famous, the people he records with are famous, and now he's on his way as well. His name is Shuggie Otis. If you're an oldies fan you remember Johnny Otis, Shuggie's father, for 'Hand Jive'. If hard rock is more your scene then more than likely you've heard the album that Al Kooper and Shuggie did together, Kooper Session.
