Silk Degrees - Boz Scaggs (1976)

Play
Read more

Perfect July 4th Weekend listening, this landmark album from the legendary Boz Scaggs is blue-eyed 70s soul at its absolute finest.  Featuring incredible musicianship, smooth vocals, and slick production, the album is filled with infectious melodies and bizarre lyrics (track #2, 'Georgia,' is not an ode to the Peachtree state, but is instead about a man's relationship with a much, much younger female). 

Get the dirty lowdown on this amazing collection of songs as Jon and Chris rave about this sentimental summer favorite from 1976.

Boz Scaggs – The Deep Dive Podcast

Though he wasn’t known for a long list of hits like his 70s rock counterparts, singer/songwriter Boz Scaggs had a great deal of influence on more than just the success of his own solo career. Let’s take a deep dive into the musical life of Boz Scaggs:

  • Scaggs was born in Canton, Ohio, though he moved to Plano, Texas where he attended a private school. After learning guitar at age 12, Scaggs met Steve Miller while at St. Mark’s School in Plano. In 1959 he became the vocalist for Miller’s original band, the Marksmen
  • Later, the two would attend the University of Wisconsin at Madison and play together in blues bands like The Ardells and the Fabulous Knight Trains
  • Boz spent some time in London to work with other bands and start his first solo album, but eventually returned to the US to work with the Steve Miller Band on their first two albums
  • His second album had a decidedly San Francisco sound featuring the likes of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section and session guitarist Duane Allman, who later formed the Allman Brothers
  • In 1976, he recorded the album Silk Degrees which spawned his most famous singles, including Lowdown and the Lido Shuffle
  • The session musicians that helped make Silk Degrees with Boz apparently enjoyed working together so much, they eventually formed their own band: Toto
  • The producers of Saturday Night Fever asked to use the hit Lowdown in their movie, but Scaggs’ manager turned them down and instead used it in the movie Looking For Mr. Goodbar. Not a good move – Saturday Night Fever became one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time. And the movie Looking For Mr. Goodbar was a relative dud
  • Though Lido Shuffle was a smash hit for Boz, he actually didn’t know it until more than a year after the Silk Degrees album was released. The single took that long to be released, but ended up helping the album top out at 5 million records sold
  • Scaggs wrote “Lido Shuffle” with David Paich, who was also his co-writer on “Lowdown.” In an interview with songfacts.com in 2013, Scaggs talked about how the song came about: “‘Lido’ was a song that I’d been banging around. And I kind of stole… well, I didn’t steal anything. I just took the idea of the shuffle. There was a song that Fats Domino did called ‘The Fat Man’ that had a kind of driving shuffle beat that I used to play on the piano, and I just started kind of singing along with it. Then I showed it to Paich and he helped me fill it out. It ended up being ‘Lido Shuffle.'”

496 - Boz Scaggs - Kevin Nealon

Kevin Nealon joins Josh Adam Meyers to discuss Boz Scaggs' self-titled debut album. Every generation in history has produced creative minds that laid the groundwork for those who came after them, and as episode 496 of The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers shows, it’s not even clear to those trailblazers how their efforts will ripple outwards in time. While Saturday Night Live has produced dozens of wildly influential cast members, few alumni have crafted as humbly ubiquitous a presence in comedic television and movies as this week’s guest, Kevin Nealon. The same could be said of Boz Scaggs, whose soulful self-titled debut album which Kevin and Josh digest, was so different in style and execution from its contemporaries, and its staying power as a landmark of Americana wasn’t recognized until years after its release in 1969.

Boz Scaggs and Maeve Higgins

This week: Boz Scaggs. The one and only! The hitmaker behind "Lido Shuffle" and "Lowdown" and so much more talks with Jesse about his more than five decade career in music. Lately, like a lot of rockers his age, his work has steered more towards the basics: some blues, some covers here and there, lots of stripped down instrumentation. But behind all that has been a commitment to atmosphere and production - music with an aesthetic that's dark and unsettling in one moment, then in another tender and loving. You know, the kind of thing that makes Boz Scaggs... Boz Scaggs. It's all on his latest record - "Out of the Blues" - which is out now. Then, Maeve Higgins. She's a comic, a podcast host and a memoirist, very well known back home in Ireland. She moved to the New York City in her early 30s. And, yes, like a lot of comics, she worked her observations about America and New York into her set. But she probed deeper. She thought about what lead her to make the move. What it says about her. What it's like being in this strange, amazing city thousands of miles away from home.
