Fade into Light [DualDisc]

Fade into Light [DualDisc]

by Boz Scaggs



This elusive disc -- issued in Japan six years prior to this domestic release -- is proof positive that you can, in fact, go home again. Largely comprising stripped-down "unplugged" versions of the songs that established Boz Scaggs as one of rock's most enduring vocalists, Fade into Light exudes a mature urbanity that's not all that different than the attitude he epitomized in the '70s -- just a little older and wiser. The retooled arrangement of "Lowdown" allows the song to take the shape of a jazz standard -- the kind of thing that Tony Bennett could easily wrap his pipes around -- and while that's probably the most radical revision, acoustic versions of "We're All Alone" and "Harbor Lights" take on a burnished patina that focuses full attention on Scaggs' vocals. That tenor extends to the songs that Scaggs recorded specifically for the set, notably the heart-tugging ballad "Some Things Happen" and the title track, a gossamer wisp of a song that presaged the singer's subsequent immersion in the realm of standards. For the occasion of Fade into Light's Stateside release, Scaggs re-recorded its most upbeat number, a cover of Teddy Pendergrass's "Love T.K.O." that boasts some sultry sax work from Tom Scott. Stripped down and reenergized, Boz Scaggs has never sounded better.
