Boz Scaggs :: Boz Scaggs

"Not only a great debut, but also an enduring blue-eyed soul masterpiece-one of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time."

"Boz Scaggs" could be a candidate for the greatest overlooked, unjustly forgotten album of the classic rock era. It wasn't overlooked in its own day, when FM radio was "free form" and could play 10 minute-long tracks, the amazing "Loan Me a Dime," a delicately soulful blues wail that evolves into a monstrous Duane Allman guitar workout, was a late-night staple. But the whole album is as good as that climactic moment. "I'll Be Long Gone" is an emotional inspiration. There are many other highlights...the emotional directness of "Look What I Got" and "Sweet Release" is heavenly soul.

"Boz Scaggs" is the second album by Boz was released in 1969. The players on the album include a set of studio musicians, known for their down-and-dirty backing work for Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett, among many other Southern soul legends. The Muscle Shoals rhythm section, occasionally augmented by guitarist Duane Allman, gives this music genuine grit,not necessarily a straight-up blue-eyed soul record, even if the opening "I'm Easy" and "I'll Be Long Gone" are as deeply soulful as anything cut at Muscle Shoals.

This album is so complete, so rich, Scaggs obviously loves the whole wide expanse of soul, blues and R & B. The album is sequenced is almost flawless.The record was co-produced by Jann Wenner, founder of Rolling Stone magazine.
