“Other Roads” Less Traveled: Friday Music Preps Boz Scaggs Reissues
Friday Music has added some more titles to their ongoing series of Boz Scaggs reissues. The label will expand two Columbia LPs from the singer/songwriter/guitarist with remastered sound and packaging.
First, there’s Moments, Scaggs’ debut for Colubmia which featured production by Glyn Johns and a minor hit with “We Were Always Sweethearts.” (Listen for a young Rita Coolidge on backing vocals on the track “Near You”!) This set includes two mono single mixes and a pair of rare EP tracks.
Other Roads saw Scaggs making quite the comeback after eight years away from the industry. Armed with an all-star cast of sidemen (a good chunk of Toto, James Ingram, Siedah Garrett, Timothy B. Schmit, and producers Stewart Levine and Patrick Leonard, each man coming off a respective hot streak with Simply Red and Madonna), Other Roads was an adult-contemporary smash. This reissue includes two non-LP B-sides and a rare remix.
Check out the track lists after the jump and click here to pre-order the sets, due for release on August 31.
