Description

The Brothers Johnson in 1977

"Strawberry Letter 23" is a song written by Shuggie Otis, although known most prominently by the version done by The Brothers Johnson. Otis wrote the song for a girlfriend who used strawberry-scented paper when she wrote letters to him. George Johnson of The Brothers Johnson was dating one of Otis' cousins when he came across Freedom Flight, Otis' 1972 album that featured the song. The group later recorded it for their 1977 album Right On Time, under the legendary producer Quincy Jones, and the album went platinum. "Strawberry Letter 23", as recorded by The Brothers Johnson in a funkier, more dance-oriented vein than the original Otis version, hit the Hot 100 and peaked at number five and reached number one on the Soul Singles chart in 1977. The famous guitar solo in this song was originally recorded by Shuggie Otis. Studio guitar player Lee Ritenour later recreated Shuggie Otis' original solo for The Brothers Johnson 1977 album.

myspace videos cleanup

Phase 1 of the myspace cleanup is done. All dead videos (about 6500+) should be gone. The rest was checked and is still working.

Phase 2 is far more complicated and will take considerably longer; I will gradually try to replace/repost as much as I can (find) over the next months.

Thanks for your patience.

TIP: use the "Search Options" on the New Videos page, to filter out only the new videos.
