BOZ SCAGGS Silk Degrees (Pure Pleasure)


Out of stock

Boz Scaggs is a unique and marvellous singer. His soulful voice can be, in turn, silky-smooth and sensual or funky and upbeat, depending on the material, but it is always compelling. This voice comes through superbly on the ten great tunes featured on “Silk Degrees”.

Scaggs, a solid composer in its own right, wrote three tracks on his own, co-wrote five more with David Paich. Paich contributed the delightful “Love Me Tomorrow” by himself while the remaining tune is a cover of Allen Toussaint’s excellent “What Do You Want the Girl to Do”.

The production is very slick and sophisticated thanks to the arrangements by future Toto’s keyboardist David Paich, to the orchestral direction (strings and brass) by Sid Sharp, to the soulful back-up vocals and to the sheer artistry of all the musicians involved.

Stylistically, the compositions are a nice blend of Philly soul influenced pop and rock.

A classic of elegant, well crafted music.
