EDITORS’ NOTES

Boz Scaggs’ love of music from the American South—its blues, R&B, and soul—has long been documented. Dude’s a purist, and probably more so now than he was on his '70s radio hits. This Nashville-recorded follow-up to 2013’s much-loved Memphis showcases brilliant covers and originals that mostly draw from a deep well of Louisiana music. From the old Li'l Millet hit “Rich Woman” to a note-perfect remake of Bobby Charles’ “Small Town Talk” to The Band's lovely "Whispering Pines” (featuring Lucinda Williams), there’s intimacy that rings of authenticity. It’s a legend in full command of his influences.
