I love the 1976 album Silk Degrees by Boz Scaggs. Yes, it’s a little disco-ish, but there are numerous fabulous tracks on it: “Lowdown,” “Lido Shuffle,” “Georgia,” “What Do You Want the Girl to Do,” “We’re All Alone,” etc. I’m not ashamed to say it was one of the first albums I ever purchased.
While his follow-up disk stiffed, 1980’s Middle Man spawned a couple of nice hits. It also contained this fun song, another I’m thinking I heard first via album rock stations.
