In 1969, Boz Scaggs debut release on Atlantic Records was a stunning classic recording that has earned its place in the history of rock, blues and popular music. Celebrating its four decade birthday, Friday Music has located the original session tapes, which havent been available since the early seventies, and have spared no expense with the mastering process to deliver what we feel is the definitive audiophile reissue of the year!brbrThe nine songs that make this incredible album such a winner has a lot to do with the musicianship, writing skills, and the great voice of Boz Scaggs .brbrFans remember exciting blues oriented tracks like Im Easy and I ll Be Long Gone as some of the most important songs of this much loved platter.brbrWith the famous Muscle Shoals studio sound, along with some of the finest musicians in the business, Boz and company delivered nine tracks of whack, that have stood the test of time, including one of his most famous works Loan Me A Dime, which hands down opened the doors for a lot of the cross over blues music that is being recorded today. This much emulated and loved work as well as the other great songs from the album feature the sorely missed guitar styling of the late Duane Allman.brbrFor this Boz Scaggs debut masterwork, Friday Music is including the stellar gatefold cover art, along with the original graphics, poly lined protective album sleeve, and poly vinyl cover for the album cover.brbrPour your favorite glass of wine, place the pristine audiophile master recording, impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Ray Charles, Hall and Oates, Doobie Brothers) on your turntable, crank it up and enjoy!
