Editors’ Notes

Boz Scaggs had already developed a reputation as an exemplary blues-R&B singer over the years, on the road and with the original incarnation of the Steve Miller Band. With the encouragement of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner, who served as the album’s co-producer, Boz Scaggs struck out on his own. Notable for the appearance of guitarist Duane Allman (best heard on the extended 13-minute “Loan Me a Dime”), Scaggs’ self-titled debut album, recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio, is centered on a genuine, no-nonsense approach to roots music that reflects its influences without resorting to cliché. “Another Day (Another Letter)” could be a Stax-Volt ballad. “Now You’re Gone” incorporates honky-tonk into its Southern soul. “Finding Her” is spare blues, its rhythm expanding in its longing alongside a wandering lead guitar. “Look What I Got!” works over a Willie Nelson vibe. Country legend Jimmie Rodgers is given a spirited rendition of his hobo lament “Waiting for a Train.” Since Scaggs would go on to greater success in the ‘70s with a much sleeker sound, the overall rawness may come as a surprise, but a welcome one at that.

Customer Reviews


Back in the day, when I bought this music on a big, beautiful vinyl album, it cost three or four dollars. Now, in order to get the only really good song from it onto my $234. ipod, you want ten dollars; excuse me: nine dollars, ninty-nine cents. Back in the day we called this a RIP-OFF. Guess what? It still is. It's all about the music isn't it? Isn't it? Hmmm....You people need to fix this!


I fully agree with Sschulz's comments. Itunes knows that "Loan Me A Dime" is the only highlight to attract buyers to this album. Lousy Itune tactics. Shame on you guys. I refuse to spend $9.99 for 1 song for obvious reasons. Please consider changing your sales marketing methods to treat your customers more fairly.

Loan Me a Dime
