"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.
It All Went Down The Drain
Your Good Thing (Is About To End)
Breakdown Dead Ahead
Loan Me A Dime
You Got My Letter
Fly Like A Bird
Follow That Man
The last few tunes were tacked onto the CD, which unfortunately has no further info. They are worth listening to, so no worries.
