Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Having sat most of the '80s out, Boz Scaggs returns in the mid-'90s as an urbane blues crooner, effectively bringing his music full circle from the sleek, disco-friendly pop of his '70s commercial zenith to the purer R&B of his late '60s debut. Come Home is a soulful valentine to the same models that informed that first outing, juxtaposing solid new originals against venerable songs from Jimmy Reed, Earl King Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Willie Mitchell, and other blues and soul masters from Memphis, Texas, and Chicago. Scaggs, always a model of taste (who else could have produced disco hits that still sound stylish), juggles two blue-chip rhythm sections with strategic infusions of soulful brass, greasy organ, and Scaggs's own deep-fried guitar work sustaining the set's bluesy accents. --Sam Sutherland

Right from his earliest work as a member of the Steve Miller Band, Boz Scaggs has been a disciple of blues & soul, something he has never totally forgotten in any of his solo work. But of course, since 1976's mega-selling SILK DEGREES, Boz was content to make his music sound as polished as possible, creating soul-pop with a pronounced accent on "pop". However, after experiencing a creative rebirth with 1994's SOME CHANGE, Boz decided to revisit his past with an album that explored the sounds he grew up idolizing. With an album firmly grounded in R&B and blues, a title like COME ON HOME could not have possibly been bettered.
While covers albums are often the ones most avoided by an artist's fans, when done right, the result seems worth all the trouble. COME ON HOME not only proves this beyond a doubt, but Boz also created 4 original songs written & recorded in the vintage style. Clearly, Boz loves this music so much, he can tailor his own songs to the old sounds flawlessly, and that is far from an easy thing to do. Of the originals, the Stax horns-driven "Picture Of A Broken Heart" & the closing Blue Note-jazz-styled ballad "Goodnight Louise" are the biggest highlights. You'd swear that these songs were outtakes from the old days, they're that authentic-sounding. "I've Got Your Love" is almost straight from the Hi Records vaults with Boz sounding close to Al Green at times (not to mention showing off his often-overlooked guitar abilities). "After Hours" is exactly as its title claims, a downhearted blues shuffle that is perfect for any smoky club. Best of all, Boz is one White singer that can pull off these kinds of songs without trying too hard to sound Black. Again, this is a gift only a select few White singers possess, with Boz among them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad! Brilliant! Boz!! August 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Boz' crowning acheivement to date, this CD is one lean mean groove! Whether he's Fats, doing 'Sick and Tired', Jimmy Reed doing 'Found Love', or himself doing T-Bone Walker, Boz has come home. This is ONE OF THE BEST RHYTHM & BLUES ALBUMS EVER, it raises Boz' already respectable credentials to a new plateau. Boz pays tribute to his mentors with painstaking attention to detail, and his choice of musicians & material reaches beyond inspired. I can't pick out favorites, every song pulls you into a place you don't want to leave. The only thing wrong with this album is how good it is. Boz will probably never make a better record, so all we can hope for is more work of the same caliber.

Format:Audio CD
I grew up on Ray Charles, James Brown, soul, blues, country & gospel. I've been listening to and collecting music for 40 years, and have approx. 3,000 recordings. Simply put, this is one of the best, most soulful, powerful, bodaciously BAD records I've ever heard! There is not a weak cut here. Boz sounds like he's been holding this in for 30 years! The production & playing are flawless, but not too slick. The "live-in-the-studio" sound is preserved. There are no "highlights", every cut is astounding. With that in mind, "Love Letters" brings tears to my eyes, and, like the previous reviewer, I fall to my knees when Boz testifies "I've Got Your Love". His vocal chords should be enshrined; his heart and soul could provide electrical power to most of North America. If you like ANY kind of blues or R&B, you will surely dig this!

5.0 out of 5 stars As Close To The Finest R&B/Soul Tribute Ever!!! January 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This 1997 release,was a worthy followup to the excellent,*Fade Into Light*of 1996,and the watershed *Some Change* a couple of years earlier.These two Cds *wet* my appetite and rekindled an appreciation for that distinctive style that typifies Boz Scaggs,professional stylish,blusey,jazz-tinged,and vocally distinctive.I had heard the T Bone Walker,classic ,*T Bone Shuffle*and liked what I heard,and was eagerly awaiting the whole CD,*Come On Home*...I was not disappointed!!!
There is not a bad track in this collection.It heartfeltly honours the influences and artists,both singers and songwriters,that have shaped and directed the career of Boz Scaggs.
It is a tribute to that particularly American music form,born of jazz and blues,that is R&B,and Boz Scaggs delivers it masterfully.The project was a personal desire and goal,which he has admirably delivered here,so much so that he has eclipsed the excellence of *Some Change* and raised the *bar* a little higher for the future releases.
The choice of muscians and the production and arrangements are masterful,delivering an adult oriented and traditionally rich interpretation of some classic R&B standards,as well as a couple of originals,*Goodnight Louise*,*Picture Of A Broken Heart* and*Ive Got Your Love*.The latter receiving a tremendous treatment that makes it a standout,along with *Goodnight Louise*.
The Earl King Johnson,*It All Went Down The Drain*and the Porter/Hayes,*Your Good Thing(Is About To End)*warrant the purchase of the CD on their own.
I may have lost the faith throughout the 80s,but Boz is back with a vengence in the 90s,and that is a pleasing thing.
