Shuggie Otis' Comeback Tour Chronicled with New Live Album

Shuggie Otis' Comeback Tour Chronicled with New Live Album
Guitar man Shuggie Otis has experienced a bit of a resurgence as of late thanks to the release of a "lost album" last year, and now he's being treated to his first-ever live album. Live in Williamsburg is due out on October 14 on Cleopatra Records.

This show was recorded at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 19, 2013, as part of his recent comeback tour. Otis played with a live band including his son Eric on guitar and his brother Nick on drums. (His son Lucky has also played in the band, although it seems that he wasn't involved in this particular show.)

"It was a great feeling having my brother and my two sons playing with me in various parts of the globe last year," the songwriter said in a statement. "They have their own music as well, and I love them, and am also very proud of them. It's special to play with them, and it was really important to me to capture one of our performances on record."

This live CD will be followed by a DVD version of the same concert. Otis also has a new studio album in the works and more tours on the horizon.
