Silk Degrees by Boz Scaggs was not only one of the finest examples of crossover soul, pop and rock ever recorded, but it was also one of the biggest albums of the seventies and included some of the finest grooves ever played by Boz Scaggs, which netted him a Grammy for his mega number one hit Lowdown. Other major hit singles included Lido Shuffle, Georgia, What Can I Say and It’s Over. Other artists like Rita Coolidge and Frankie Valli covered songs from this watershed album and had major hits themselves, which further illustrates the importance and influence of this highly loved and regarded masterwork. Featuring his friends like Fred Tackett (Little Feat), Les Dudek, and of course the future hit makers Toto as his backing band for most of this fine album, Boz Scaggs’ Silk Degrees still rocks with all of us and is a crowd pleaser to this day!
