It will probably have to be Lowdown, but I'm going to try to make a point of listening to this whole collection before voting. I'm not all that familiar with him--I only just heard Silk Degrees all the way through for the first time since I was a pre-teen. He's an excellent example of the phenomenon of "I didn't know that was by. . ."

We're All Alone. (And I think I remember Lido Shuffle edging slightly past Lowdown in terms of ILM luv)

"Dinah Flo" is a pretty good Van Morrison ripoff.

Miss seeing "Georgia" on the list. But, in the end, Lido Shuffle is undeniable.

Not going "Lowdown" but do love

Got to have a Jones for this Jones for that
This running with the Joneses boy
Just ain't where it's at
You gonna come back around
To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown

I wonder what Boz would sound like singin' with the Dan

Iago Galdston, Sunday, 22 April 2012 04:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm sure he's fit right in!

It feels like a kind of predictable choice, but I gotta go with Lido Shuffle

Moodles, Sunday, 22 April 2012 04:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm really hoping I get a chance to sing it at karaoke some day

C or D: "Lido Shuffle"

Doctor Casino, Sunday, 22 April 2012 05:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have done it at karaoke and it's fun! You have to be game for riding out the long solo but the highs are worth it. The one time I did it the karaoke guy was like, omg, THAT song! after I got done, clearly having been totally mystified when he'd entered in my request.

I prefer the Coolidge version of "We're All Alone" (it sounds like it was written for her voice specifically and no other), so probably gotta go with "Lowdown." Although I remember a time when I was about 10 where "Lido Shuffle" was so ubiquitous it's kind of hard NOT to click that button."

can't really make it out there, but Boz Scaggs and Pat Travers rule. Cheap Trick and Disco suck. Star Trek the Motion Picture.

Silk Degrees is grat but I voted Jojo

my man

JoJo was almost my choice, but I burned out on it recently--I hate that feeling when you play a favorite too many times!

Apologies to Silk Degrees fans: while it's marvelous I'm more enamored with Middle Man, the closest that Scaggs came to appropriating New Wave (as performed by Toto).

love "Lido Shuffle," but "We're All Alone."

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

remains popular in Japan

_Rudipherous_, Saturday, 28 April 2012 16:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

And Lowdown it is. There is no song here that's far superior.

Automatic thread bump. This poll's results are now in.

Yup. Lido was the favorite over on the main thread. Good order.

Iago Galdston, Sunday, 29 April 2012 00:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

Nice!

there's songs with zero votes that'd be the best songs in many many other artist's catalogues. viva boz

cosi fan whitford (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 29 April 2012 17:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

starting with these:

Breakdown Dead Ahead (Scaggs, Foster) 0
You Make It So Hard (To Say No) (Scaggs) 0

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 29 April 2012 17:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

and "What Can I Say" and "It's Over"

cosi fan whitford (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 29 April 2012 19:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

the drumming on "It's Over" is so sick & the opening with backing vocals up front trick (Boz loves this one) works so beautifully

listening to side 2 of Silk Degrees at 5 a.m where I'm at in the dark alone in a hotel...this album isn't just top 5 for me, it's top 3. So so so so so so good.

I love pocarro's drums on "love me tomorrow"; dude has the magic touch.
