After a long run recording and touring with the Steve Miller Band, fellow Texan William Royce Scaggs decided to go solo in 1968. A year later, the future Grammy award-winning artist delivered an amazing masterwork for Atlantic Records, simply titled Boz Scaggs.
Recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, the song selection and the stunning studio players made this an extraordinary album for Boz and would go on to be one of his most enduring albums for over five decades.
Noted for the amazing guitar/vocal interplay between Boz and fellow bluesman Duane Allman, along with the stellar Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the LP was one of the finest recordings of all time, as songs like "I'm Easy" "I'll Be Long Gone" and of course the tour-de-force "Loan Me a Dime" would go on to become radio favorites.
More classics like Jimmie Rodgers' "Waiting for a Train" and his collaboration with Barry Beckett, "Sweet Release," are also more examples of the great music found within this stunning 1969 masterwork.
To commemorate five decades of this amazing album, Friday Music is very pleased to announce the first-time-ever gold vinyl super limited edition release of Boz Scaggs.
To further enhance your Boz Scaggs vinyl experience, Friday Music are also including the original gatefold album cover artwork from 1969.
...this album is...thoroughly a showcase for Boz Scaggs' musical vision, which even at this stage is wide and deep. It would grow smoother and more assured over the years, but the slight bit of raggedness suits the funky, down-home performances and helps make this not only a great debut, but also an enduring blue-eyed soul masterpiece.
