Album Review

Featuring his would-be-soulman sound, Slow Dancer finds Boz Scaggs straddling the apparently fine line between Van Morrison and Isaac Hayes. While Silk Degrees is often touted as Scaggs' best '70s album — based largely upon the chart success of "Lowdown" — Slow Dancer features just as many catchy melodic tunes that meld a kind of boogie pub rock with an organic urban soul. Produced by Motown regular Johnny Bristol, Scaggs delivers some of his best performances on the Bristol-penned track "Pain of Love" and the Neil Young meets Marvin Gaye ballad "Sail on White Moon."

True Masterpiece from an Underappreciated American Master

My first listen to this quiet tour-de-force came while I was making out with a girlfriend way back in 1974. She put the LP on her parents' stereo, then we headed for the sofa. After a couple of minutes of heavy panting and groping, "Slow Dancer" began playing and, somehow, the mood morphed from a wild and sprawling gropefest into subtle and soft tender-touching exercise. From there, the intensity of our activity became driven not so much by the fire in our teenaged loins, but by the rising and falling tides of this incredibly romantic record. Third base was rounded by the time "The Pain of Love" was turning. By that time we were spellbound, not really in control of our passion, but rather being driven along a different path as each song changed.

Boz, for your music, I am eternally grateful.

By the time home plate was finally reached, "Take It For Granted" was ending. The angel voices at the extreme end of that song seemed to sing to us that we had been carried on their wings to places in love that few ever are allowed to reach. This album comes highly recommended for it's depth, for it's soul, for it's heartfelt emotion. It's pretty good for setting the mood for making whoopee, too.

By the time 1975 rolled around I was in a co-ed college dorm, and Boz gave us Silk Degrees...but that would be the subject of another review.

Underrated Masterwork

This is an awesome and seamless album of smooth smiles and lyrics as good as the melodies. A timeless classic. Must listen. Boz has a few top 40 songs everyone's heard; these are mellower tracks every should hear. CIN
