Boz Scaggs Some Change on 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso
Some Change was Boz Scaggs’ amazing debut for Virgin Records which would also begin a long-term hit making association with the label. It also was his return to the album charts with his first release since 1988’s Other Roads. This 1994 Boz Scaggs/Ricky Fataar (Beach Boys/Bonnie Raitt) produced gem was a hip revisit to the critically acclaimed southern blues affair sound of his first album Boz Scaggs. There was now a more organic roots sound, while still retaining all the polish and funk of a Silk Degrees, thanks to a solid round of album airplay at both rock, pop, and adult radio stations.
Leading off with the Texan style rocker "You Got My Letter," a real crowd pleaser filled not only with his much welcomed back voice but also his legendary lead guitar work. This would be one of the definitive tunes that would surely reignite radio and retail’s appreciation of this superstar performer. The blues belter title track "Some Change" was a very popular go to song for the adult alternative stations as was the follow up single "Fly Like A Bird," a crowd pleaser filled with all the New Orleans/Mississippi blues imagery you could imagine, showcasing Scaggs’ soulful voice and a zydeco accordion paired into a wonderful tune for the fans.
Not a stranger to soul and ballad idioms, Some Change goes on to capture all of these ingredients with artistic ventures like the uptown groover "Call Me" as well as his stunning ballads "Sierra" and" Lost It." Both of these magical tracks signify the way he can write a song, giving it an unequaled style and performance, while also creating five minute masterpieces with a sense of second nature delivery.
