‘Boz Scaggs’ at 50: Inside the Making of a White-Soul Classic

With help from Duane Allman and Rolling Stone’s Jann S. Wenner, Scaggs settled into Muscle Shoals and crafted the LP that properly launched his career

Fifty years ago, a handful of milestone albums set the tone for rock of the following decade. Crosby, Stills & Nash initiated a fresh approach to harmonies and looser group names; the eponymous debut by the Allman Brothers Band laid the foundation for the Southern rock of the Seventies. And setting the scene for the white soul-pop that would explode with the likes of Hall and Oates was Boz Scaggs’ self-titled album, which Atlantic Records rolled out on this day in August 1969.

Technically, Boz Scaggs wasn’t a debut; Scaggs had served time in the Steve Miller Band and had recorded an acoustic folk-blues album, Boz, released in Sweden in 1966. Co-produced by Scaggs, engineer Marlin Greene, and Jann S. Wenner, founder and editorial director of Rolling Stone, Boz Scaggs was the San Francisco singer-songwriter’s proper, full-on introduction as a solo artist, and it paved the way for the success Scaggs would have in the following decade, especially the million-selling, multiple-hit Silk Degrees.
