It was one of three classics ("Lowdown" and "We're All Alone" were the others) that appear, in "unplugged" versions, on his 2005 album, Fade Into Light. Singer, songwriter and guitarist Boz Scaggs, born William Royce Skaggs in 1944, became the vocalist of Steve Miller's band, The Marksmen, in 1959. He released his solo debut album, Boz, in 1965 before linking up with Miller again and appearing on the Steve Miller Band's first two albums, Children of the Future and Sailor. Scaggs, who signed a solo contract with Atlantic Records in 1968, found worldwide success with Silk Degrees (which featured the studio musicians who would later form Toto). The album reached No. 2 on the U.S. charts and No. 1 in several countries around the world, resulting in a sold-out world tour. Scaggs' other albums include Slow Dancer (1974), Middle Man (1980), Fade Into Light (1999/2005) and Dig (2001), and he continues to be a popular touring performer. Slightly creased. Fine condition.
