Boz Scaggs - Memphis

Worthy Walk

I would appear to have it in for Clapton as I reference my disappointment in his latest album again, Old Sock, a 67 year old’s slothful walk to the corner store in his underwear. I do so because Boz Scagg’s latest Memphis is a 68 year old’s cool saunter to a late-night club in a smooth suited elegance. Much of this laid-back and groovy funk plays homage to Al Green, and is therefore delightful. Elsewhere it’s homage to slick production and a joy in the reinterpretation of well-known songs, rather than.....I’m not going to say it again.
