This japanese import sounds great, and as far as I know, there are no domestic releases. I still have the LP, but it's virtually unplayable. However, this CD, complete with japanese liner notes, sounds so good, you can even hear Shuggies pick on the strings. Al Koopers organ/electric piano also sounds wonderful. My two favorites are #'s 5 and 7, the lengthy "12:15 Goonbash Blues" and "Shuggies Shuffle", respectively, an absolute MUST for any blues or blues/rock lover.

as the liner notes state shuggie is only 15 at the time of thie recording. while i am just discovering that this is finally available on cd i am very familiar with this record. if you loved super session then this is for you. the "a" side or songs is a combination of gospel and blues, while the "b" is 3 long jams. shuggie is the star here while kooper and the others keep a great backbeat, the blues are what shuggie is meant to play. only 2 questions remain, why no usa cd release? and why isn't shuggie recording? someone should find him in california and sign him quick.

this is another of my all time favorites, i had this album when i was only 20 years old....this is a japanese import complete with japanese liner notes, the correct title is "kooper session", not "volume 2 kooper sessions", but it is one and the same. shuggie otis was fifteen years old at the time, but boy, does he rip on guitar. my two favorite tracks are #'s 5 and 7, "12:15 slow goonbash blues" and "shuggies shuffle", a definate MUST for all blues/rock lovers.

Al kooper's previous album(supersession)set the standard for superstar jam albums so this record,released just one year later,was bound to be overlooked.However,since most of shuggie otis' discography has been reissued in recent years it only seemed natural that eventually they would dust off this little gem.The record is broken into two sides:side one consists of concise readings of more tradionally based blues material while side two is where shuggie and al decide to stretch out in the form of three lenghty jams.All and all this album is a nice little record that if you dig shuggie otis is well worth forking over the ten or twelve bucks for the experience.

Released in 2007, this import CD reissue is on Repertoire RES 2336, comes in a gatefold card digipak and breaks down as follows (40:46 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 7 are the album "Kooper Session - Al Kooper Introduces Shuggie Otis" which was first released in January 1970 in the USA on Columbia Records CS-9951 and a few months later on CBS Records S 63979 in the UK. Here's a detailed track list...

THE SONGS (Side 1):
1. Bury My Body [Al Kooper song] - Al Kooper on Organ, Piano & Lead Vocals, Shuggie Otis On Guitar, The Harris Robinson Singers on Backing Vocals
2. Double Or Nothing [Instrumental cover of a Booker T. & The M.G.'s song from 1967] - Al Kooper on Organ, Mark "Moogy" Klingman on Piano, Shuggie Otis On Guitar
3. One Room Country Shack [Cover of a 1949 Blues song on Specialty Records by Mercy Dee Walton] - Al Kooper on Organ, Guitar & Lead Vocals, Shuggie Otis On Guitar
4. Lookin' For A Home [Cover of a 1961 Blues Song by 'Little Buster' Forehand]

THE BLUES (Side 2):
1. 12:15 Slow Goonbash Blues [Al Kooper & Shuggie Otis song] - Al Kooper on Organ and Piano, Mark "Moogy" Klingman on Piano, Shuggie Otis On Guitar
2. Shuggie's Old Time Dee-Di-Lee-Di-Leet-Deet Slide Boogie [Al Kooper & Shuggie Otis song] - Al Kooper on Piano, Shuggie Otis On Guitar
3. Shuggie's Shuffle [Al Kooper & Shuggie Otis song] - Al Kooper on Organ and Piano, Mark "Moogy" Klingman on Piano, Shuggie Otis On Guitar

"Kooper Session" featured a sensational new guitar prodigy called Johnny "Shuggie" Otis Jnr - son of the Fifties Rhythm'n'Blues legend Johnny Otis - playing alongside Al Kooper and a group of complementary blues musicians (see credits above).

Brilliant debut by Shuggie Otis. The maturity of his riffs and the skill of his improvisation, belies his 15 years on this planet at that time. Highly Recommend to blues and blues rock lovers

It's a shame this album isn't yet available on CD. I have the original LP where Al Kooper instinctively creates the setting to allow Shuggie Otis to perform at his most amazing best. Each track shows off Shuggie's comfort level with various types of blues and soul genres. Although the guitar playing is heartfelt and truely world class it seems that much more incredible when Al Kooper casually reveals in the last line of the liner notes, "Oh one more thing, Shuggie is only fifteeen years old."

I can't believe I just discovered this album. It's amazing from the first track. And each track just keeps you wanting more and more. I can listen to it over and over again. I bought Super Session when it was first released and haven't listened to it for years. Having listened to it again recently and finding this album, I prefer this one. This album really rocks.
