Editorial Reviews

This 1976 pop-soul masterpiece was the biggest hit (#2) and best album by this Steve Miller Band alum, who here scored hits with What Can I Say; Lido Shuffle; It's Over , and the smash Lowdown (which went #5 R&B, too). Here's the complete album plus three unissued live bonus cuts from 1976!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Over it's over now! October 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Man I love this CD. I was 10 years told when it first came out in 1976, or something like that. In 1992, I bought the cassette tape to play in my little surfwagon when I was living in Honolulu. The musicians in this band are awesome. Basically, it's Toto playing in the background to Boz Scaggs' voice. Total groove music! Songs are killer! I know this review probably doesn't help, but you've gotta be into 70's music to fully appreciate this CD. Late!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than ever. Silk Degrees February 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
We have been waiting for a long time for this to be re-mastered and re-released. Sometimes I am not thrilled with the sound of the remastered versions. It seems that so much more can be done, like with the recent re-release of ELO's Out of the Blue (which is very good, but could have been better). Silk Degrees comes alive on this version. The songs, of course, are wonderful, as anyone looking at this already knows and probably has owned it in more than one format. The sound is what draws you in and will keep you coming back, I know I will. Hopefully the rest of the wonderful Scaggs releases will get the same treatment. Be sure to buy this one and maybe there will be more.

5.0 out of 5 stars classy classic July 13, 2000
By ChefBum
Format:Audio CD
Boz Scaggs' 'Silk Degrees' is just one of those 70's albums that was soo good that fans and music lovers alike seem to be more familiar with the album as a whole than any one single song. Taken as a whole and on a song-to-song consistent basis, it is that good.
Yes, it was a surprise when Ally McBeal started singing to 'Georgia' on the radio in a recent episode, but like many other fans of this record, I *immediately* recognized the song, the artist, and the album. 'Hey, that's Boz Scaggs, from the Silk Degrees album!'
In fact, 'Georgia' remains one of my favorite cuts from the record, and just an exquisite work of pop art that transcends the decades since its first release. Tender and sweet, but it moves along nicely so that it is difficult to classify its genre. Is it pop? Soul?
'What Can I Say', 'What Do you Want the Girl to Do?', 'It's Over', are some of my other favorites, but it was 'Lido Shuffle' that got me first toe-tapping as a tender nine-year old. Its relentlessly upbeat tempo, fun lyrics and unmistakable chorus are just so wonderfully brassy, and the crisp, finger-snaps accompanying the bass line are just so fresh that it sometimes makes me just want to scream with delight! One of these days I swear I am going to hear that song and just tear my clothes off, run out into the street and do something completely embarrassing and mortifying. I won't care, it will be wonderful, and I'll have Boz to thank for all of it.
In fact, 'Silk Degrees' is so enjoyable precisely because it is such an upbeat, optimistic-feeling, irrepressibly upbeat record. You can tell that Boz and crew really, really feel that everything is going to be alright in the end. And you know, they ended up being right.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sound of the '70s March 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Few albums encapsulate America of the mid-70s as smoothly as Scaggs' 1976 commercial breakthrough. The bluesy-rock roots he sang with Steve Miller and the blue-eyed R&B he recorded since his 1969 solo debut provided a foundation for something more polished and sophisticated. The key was a production sound that took in the elements of disco - strings, horns, synthesizers and danceable beats - but didn't cast Scaggs' soul into slickness. The resulting record grabbed dancers by their velvet lapels and compelled radio listeners to the record store. Scaggs made the urbane turn Robert Palmer would visualize on video in the '80s.

"Silk Degrees" wasn't completely unprecedented, even among Scaggs catalog; he'd already been edging in this direction, bathing in the blues and soul of collaborations with Duane Allman and the Muscle Shoals rhythm section. His preceding LP, 1974's "Slow Dancer," boasted horns, strings and some embryonic disco rhythms, but it didn't have Joe Wissert's sharp production or the L.A. studio rhythm section anchored by drummer Jeff Porcaro and bassist David Hungate. The blend of Porcaro's crisp playing and Hungate's lightly funky low strings creates a propulsive groove throughout the album. Their percussive opening on "Lowdown" is just one of the album's great instrumental moments -- and a popular sample to this day.

Scaggs' songs brimmed with optimism, fitting perfectly into an America that was still re-awakening from the debacles of Vietnam and Richard Nixon, and readying itself for a bicentennial celebration. The horn charts carried the warmth of an L.A. summer, and Scaggs is - for the first time at album length - completely at ease. The album sparkles with the band's intense studio craft, but still feels effortless and organic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distinctive, Stylish Music May 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Boz Scaggs happens to be part of a minority. That is, he happens to be able to mix the sound of the blues, jazz, pop and rock in his recordings and it makes for some gorgeous music. Harbor Lights and We're All Alone are very smooth and quite soothing and just make you feel good. Lido Shuffle and Georgia have an uptempo pop/rock beat that almost commands you to get up and dance. I think Boz Scaggs is a very gifted and talented musician and "Silk Degrees" is absolutely, positively worth it's weight in gold. A triumph for Boz.
