Boz Scaggs & Band: The Deluxe Edition

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
After the burnished, mellow Moments, Boz Scaggs put some grit back into his music with this third album, Boz Scaggs & Band. Not that he got down and dirty -- his blue-eyed soul and funk is still sleek and stylish, music for uptown parties, not downtown juke joints. But Scaggs gave his band equal billing on the title here because they carry equal weight on Boz Scaggs & Band. It's a true band album, showcasing the group's tight interplay as much as it does Scaggs' vocals. Sometimes, the band almost dominates the proceedings too much, as they do on "Runnin' Blue," where they're as splashy as a Vegas big band. Such excesses are balanced by the nimble "Up to ...

Sometimes, the band almost dominates the proceedings too much, as they do on "Runnin' Blue," where they're as splashy as a Vegas big band. Such excesses are balanced by the nimble "Up to You," this album's irresistible foray into country -- something that was a regular Boz feature at this point -- and the brief, breezy "Here to Stay," which helps keep things light and casual. But the best thing about Boz & Band is hearing that band play, particularly on "Flames of Love" and "Why Why," where they get down low, playing funky rock and soul that holds its own with Little Feat's Meters-inspired grooves.

    The show went/goes on, anyway

    I was very fortunate to see this band in person at the Masonic Temple Auditorium in Detroit in 1971, and to their credit (about 30 people showed up for the show!) this band absolutely jammmed out the less than packed venue. They really had a ton of fun on stage and we were very appreciative and saw and heard a great show. Since I was a fan of Scaggs from his days with the Steve Miller Band and subsequent "Loan Me a Dime" fame, I bought the LP (no cd's in those days) without hearing it, as I craved his music. No disappointment here. This is, as the B&N reviewer stated, a band, first and foremost. Seeing them in person later on, just verified how great they are/were. Again, no disappointment here, buy it!
