345 – Brothers Johnson – Strawberry Letter 23 (1977)
Written by Shuggie Otis
Produced by Quincy Jones
Label – A&M
The lingering moments of 70s psychedelic soul/funk would be bookmarked by this breath taking ode to a strawberry scented love letter affair. The sweet drifting harmonies, the tender arrangement and Lee Ritenour’s bang on reverb and heavily phased guitar solo make for an outstanding single.
