    Silk Degrees

    Silk Degrees by Boz Scaggs was not only one of the finest examples of crossover soul, pop & rock ever recorded, but it was also one of the biggest albums of the 70's & included some of the finest grooves ever played by Boz Scaggs, which netted him a Grammy for his mega number one hit Lowdown.Other major hit singles included in this ltd. ed HQ vinyl edition are Lido Shuffle, Georgia & It's Over. Other artists covered songs from this watershed album & had major hits themselves, which further illustrates the importance of this highly loved LP. Includes bonus LIVE cd in the first 1000 copies!


    Personnel: Boz Scaggs (vocals); Fred Tackett, Louie Shelton (guitars); Les Dudek (slide guitar); Plas Johnson (tenor saxophone, horns); Bud Shank (saxophones, horns); Chuck Findley (horns, flugelhorn); Jim Horn, Tom Scott, Dick Hyde, Paul Hubinon, Vincent deRosa (horns); David Paich (keyboards, synthesizer); David Hungate (bass); Jeff Porcaro (drums, percussion); Carolyn Willis, Marty McCall, Jim Gilstrap, Augie Johnson, Maxine Green, Pepper Swenson (background vocals).


    Recorded at Davlen Sound Studios and Hollywood Sound Studios, Los Angeles, California. Boz Scaggs's 1976 breakthrough, SILK DEGREES, was not only his biggest-selling album, it was also one of his best. Here Scaggs collaborated with keyboardist and bandleader David Paich, who would soon form the hugely successful band Toto with this record's drummer, Jeff Porcaro. In Paich, Scaggs found a foil who added just enough pop gloss to make his blues- and R&B-tinged material palatable to the masses. Crucially, though, the pair keeps Scaggs's remarkable voice at the center of things, never going too far overboard with the studio polish. As a result, hit singles Lowdown and, particularly, the horn-spiked R&B of Lido Shuffle still sound fresh, while the ballads remain soulful. A year or so later, Rita Coolidge would take one of those ballads, We're All Alone, into the Billboard Top Ten with her own version.

    Southern Nights

    Featuring some of the best songs he's ever written, Southern Nights was Allen Toussaint's 1975 swing for the fences attempt at an all out masterpiece. Somewhat of a concept album, with reoccurring instrumental themes popping up between songs, this album spawned at least two hits for other artists. The title track (minus the Lennonesque rotary speaker vocal effect) was a giant hit for Glen Campbell, while What Do You Want The Girl To Do? was one of several singles on Boz Skaggs' 1976 smash Silk Degrees and was also recorded by Bonnie Raitt.
