Boz Scaggs A Fool to Care LP
Rolling Stone 50 Best Albums of 2015- Rated 18/50!
Vinyl LP Mastered by Bernie Grundman! Features Duets with Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams!
Boz Scaggs follows up the chart topping and critically acclaimed, “Memphis,”
(his highest charting record since the legendary Silk Degrees), with ‘A Fool To
Care." Produced By Steve Jordan, the album boasts several new Boz originals, as
well as a diverse range of R&B/Soul treasures. "A Fool to Care" features duets
with guest artists Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams.
The Grammy-winning rock icon Boz Scaggs blends rock, soul, jazz and R&B for this
album of new material. Bonnie Raitt plays slide guitar and sings vocals on Hell
To Pay while Lucinda Williams provides duet vocals with Scaggs on Whispering
A Fool To Care showcases the patchwork of influences and innovations that make
up a Boz Scaggs album…and sees Scaggs letting loose and having some fun. You can
hear that sense of fun, as well as his ability and willingness to wander in any
musical direction throughout these twelve tracks. The inspirational heart of the
album lies in the sounds of Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma that played such a
vital role in shaping Scaggs' musical sensibility, but they venture forth boldly
from there. Scaggs brings a sly drawl to a funky workout like Li'l Millet and
the Creoles' "Rich Woman" and an elegant delicacy to the Impressions' "I'm So
Proud." He easily negotiates the Latin flavoring of "Last Tango on 16th Street"
and "I Want to See You," both written by San Francisco bluesman (and longtime
Scaggs compatriot) Jack Walroth. Horns, strings, soulful background vocalists
and guests like guitarist Reggie Young and steel guitarist Paul Franklin lift
the album into the stratosphere.
The core band joining Boz on A Fool To Care is Willie Weeks (bass), Ray Parker
Jr. (guitars), Jim Cox (keyboard), and Steve Jordan (drums).
