For The Day: The Brothers Johnson “Strawberry Letter #23”

Alright so, growing up I always thought that this was the original version and it wasn’t until reading about Shuggie Otis in an issue of Wax Poetics that I learned that this was actually his composition (check out his 1971 album Freedom Flight) but both versions are dope respectively. The guitar bridge that goes super galactic is why I truly love “Strawberry Letter #23″…  It just gets so psychedelic … Pure greatness… R.I.P. Louis Johnson .. Check out Shuggie’s version below.
