Product Description

* His first ever live DVD * Filmed in high definition video * Mixed in stereo and surround sound * Bonus features include extra track, 15 minute documentary, and photo gallery From his early days with the Steve Miller Band, to his smash hits as a solo performer, Boz Scaggs has been a respected musician for decades. Greatest Hits Live features Scaggs in concert at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, and as Scaggs himself says, "It's not just any band that can pull off this song list." From the jazz-tinged "Harbor Lights," to the desperately blue "Loan Me a Dime," to hit songs including "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle," Greatest Hits Live provides a powerful overview of the artist's most recognized work.

1. Lowdown
2. Slow Dancer
3. Heart of Mine
4. It All Went Down the Drain
5. Harbor Lights
6. Jojo
7. Ask Me 'Bout Nothin' but the Blues
8. Breakdown Dead Ahead
9. Look What You've Done To Me
10. I Just Go
11. Georgia
12. Miss Sun
13. Lido Shuffle
14. Runnin' Blues
15. Loan Me a Dime
16. We're All Alone

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Boz Scaggs has kept a fairly low profile since his heyday in the '70s and '80s--a circumstance more than rectified with Greatest Hits Live, a great-looking, great-sounding concert recorded in San Francisco in 2004. For the most part, this is Silk Degrees-style Boz, drawing from a large catalog that favors ballads (some quite lovely, like "Harbor Lights," "We're All Alone," and "Look What You've Done to Me") and deft pop-R&B-jazz à la Steely Dan (albeit with more soul and less verbal wit and sophistication). But while "Lido Shuffle," and other expected hits are here, so are several grittier, bluesier moments, including Earl King's "It All Went Down the Drain" and extended versions of the big band blues "Runnin' Blue" and the slow lament "Loan Me a Dime" (a tune from Scaggs's 1969 solo album that featured great guitar playing by the late Duane Allman). With a fine band, 16 songs, a running time that approaches two hours, some of the best DVD sound you'll ever hear, and crisp, clear visuals, Greatest Hits Live is a portrait of a veteran, durable artist who's still in his prime. --Sam Graham

When my Boz Scaggs Greatest Hits Live DVD arrived from Amazon, it was Heaven on Earth for me. I now have Boz in my home in video anytime I want.

The performance and the audio and video quality are superb. The use of HD cameras clearly shows. Having both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 audio on the DVD is fantastic. I wish every DVD would do that. The DTS is clearly the winner. DTS puts you front row center with a presence that Dolby can't match.

This DVD is best experienced on a large-screen HDTV with DTS 5.1 audio. It's as close to being at a live Boz performance as you can get. Nothing can beat a live Boz performance, but the DVD is clearly the next best thing. However, whatever your TV and audio setup, you've got to have this DVD in your music video collection.

Boz just gets better with age, and seeing and hearing his greatest hits as he performs them "live" is like hearing them for the first time. It would be impossible for me to pick one song on the DVD as my favorite. They're all great.

Boz' voice is haunting, but it's not just his voice that makes him a unique jewel. His songs are original and magnificent in their lyrics and musicality. In today's world of sound-alike, interchangeable performers, there's no one else like Boz Scaggs.

like many artists that i listen to day after day on the radio and i cannot always place their names boz scaggs was one of those that i'm glad i remembered and bought this dvd. not only was this dvd done in hi defintion and 5.1 sound to give it a really live feeling, all the other players and back up singers were fantastic in on this dvd. i usually judge a music dvd by the standards set by the cd and i have to say that the sound quality is even better on the dvd than the cd.every one of the songs on this dvd collection were hits and most were written by boz scaggs and where they weren't he gave credit where it was due.

i can highly recomend this dvd to anyone who likes boz scaggs and as an intro to anyone like myself that likes him but didn't always put his name to a piece of music.

this dvd is worth every penny in my opinion!

I was fortunate enough to be in the front row of this show. As incredible as the experience was, you could never get closer to Boz and this incredible assemblage of musicians, or hear such clarity of sound, than through this DVD. The way it is recorded here, subject to close scrutiny and roaming presence offered by the cameras, gives me a whole renewed appreciation for an artist and performer that I have followed for his entire career. It also proves that after 40 years of performing, Boz's voice and guitar work are in fine form. In fact, it exhibits a maturity and professional approach, complimented by the opulent yet intimate setting of the venerable Great American Music Hall and consummate backing band, that boosts the performance into a realm all its own.

GREATEST HITS LIVE is a "Must Have" DVD for your collection. This disk includes something for everyone, with Boz including songs from many points along the way during his long and incredible career. Of course, Greatest Hits includes songs from his Silk Degrees heyday, like "Lowdown", "Georgia" and "Lido Shuffle"; but also songs that will appeal to the Boz afficionado, as well; like "Slow Dancer", "Runnin' Blue", "I Just Go", and "Ask Me 'Bout Nothin' But The Blues."
The production values on this DVD are unparalleled. This special night with Boz was captured in High Definition, and with incredibly high quality DTS 5.1 Multi-Channel audio. You will literally feel that you were there in San Francisco, seated at the Great American Music Hall for this auspicious event.
Do yourself a favor, add this DVD to your collection, now. You will not be disappointed. You will find yourself experiencing this concert again and again. The performance opens with strength and gets better and better as it goes. The beautiful backup singers will amaze you on "Look What You've Done To Me", "Miss Sun" and "Harbor Lights". And of course, Boz and his ensemble rip up encore favorites like "Runnin' Blue" (where the players improvise in turn) and "Loan Me A Dime".
Who knows? The finale, with the ethereal ballad "We're All Alone" may just have you dancing the night away in your living room or Home Theater, as it did us. This is a timeless DVD that will never grow old.

Boz Scaggs would likely be pleased if he read all the glowing reviews of Boz Scaggs-Greatest Hits Live. Unamimity in praise is not something one usually sees when reading reviews of something so frequently reviewed as this DVD. I feel compelled to point out that of all the books/CDs/DVDs I've reviewed to this date that have generated many other reviews, that this is the first time that reviews have been not only all positive for whatever reason, but all five star plus! Mr Scaggs, take a bow!

I own most of Boz Scaggs work in one form or another but I never gave a DVD a thought until I stumbled upon samples of this work featured on the CD/DVD set Fade Into Light. I liked what I saw and heard there and so ordered this without hesitation.

I won't go over the technical aspects or the names of all the musicians, other reviewers have already done that. What I will say is that on first viewing I was floored! Greatest Hits Live is simply spectacular.

Unlike some of the reviewers who kind of leave the impression that they think Scaggs' career began with Top 40 radio hits (i.e. Lowdown), I think that his best work both preceded and followed his radio-friendly or "disco" period. Most of the songs here are from that period, but most of the best of the DVD is from the periods I mentioned. Not many remember that Scaggs got AM radio play on a couple of songs from Moments and a couple of others before Lowdown lifted him from a cult figure to an international star.

If you are one of those who dislike Scaggs' period of mass popularity, put those feelings aside and give this DVD a chance. Scaggs proves himself not only to be one of the coolest, most urbane and sophisticated balladeers in the business, but also a master of blue-eyed soul and a wicked guitarist in the bargain.
