"Live Boz" : THE WEEKEND MIX



This live performance from Virgin Records' record release party to celebrate Boz Scaggs' 1997 "Come On Home" CD is a killer. Boz has maintained his cool from day one. The man even pulled off two very listenable standards records. (Are you hearing me, Rod? Cyndi? ROD?)

"Silk Degrees" was the one for some. His self-titled debut for Atlantic was the one for others. ("Loan Me A Dime" anyone?) But 1994's "Some Change" might be his overlooked masterpiece. A few tunes from that record are represented here, as well as some of the R&B covers that comprised "Come On Home," another excellent LP.

TRACKLIST

It All Went Down The Drain
Lowdown
Your Good Thing (Is About To End)
Breakdown Dead Ahead
T-Bone Shuffle
Loan Me A Dime
You Got My Letter
Fly Like A Bird

Follow That Man

BONUS TRACKS
The last few tunes were tacked onto the CD, which unfortunately has no further info.  They are worth listening to, so no worries.

Lowdown (Acoustic)
Some Change (Acoustic)
Loan Me A Dime (1967 Demo Take 1)
Loan Me A Dime (1967 Demo Take 2)

Enjoy please.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HOOKED ON "BOZ", SINCE THE FIRST TIMEI SAW HIM AT THE "PHILLY SPECTRUM". SEEMED LIKE HALF THE PLACE CAME DOWN ON THE FLOOR. IT WAS LIKE A "DISCO". DANCED THE WHOLE NIGHT AND COULDN'T HEAR AFTER THE SHOW! STILL SO LOVE TO DANCE TO HIS SONGS

We need a regular "Live from Boz's Winery" webcast.

Sal, thanks for this great post. The music quality is A+. Can you provide the date and location of the concert? Thanks.

Artlazarus,
I know it's 1997. I think it was an industry gig at EMI studios, but I can't be sure. Sorry I don't have more info.
