Bedtime Music: Boz Scaggs - Lido Shuffle

Although Silk Degrees was released in 1976, I didn't hear it for the first time until after I had gone to college, about four years later. Boz Scaggs was a bit of a revelation for me, singing more soul and ballads than I had listened to up through that time. Although his voice doesn't have the punch that he had in the original recording, I chose this video because this is one of my favorite Boz Scaggs' songs, Lido Shuffle, which rose to #11 on the US charts in the 70s.

BTW, if the Boz Scaggs' "sound" sounds familiar, it should. Four of the original session musicians on
Silk Degrees later formed the band Toto; one of whom, David Paich, co-wrote Lido Shuffle with Scaggs.
