My vinyl appears to be same issue in all details (Japan, 1976) but with an obi stating "Rock Best 100".

Early 1980's RE. Back of obi mentions "arranged by David Paich" and the biography on the Japanese insert goes up to 1980. Uses the beautiful orange & cream with black writing CBS/Sony label.

I believe that this pressing was mastered from analog sources. It certainly has that analog feel and sounds very dynamic. The instruments sounds very real too. I would highly recommend it.

This is one of those questionable albums I own, one of those albums I secretly indulge in, a guilty pleasure ... well several of the songs anyway. I’ve never been sure if Boz was giving a receptive nod to Hall & Oates, and Todd Rundgren, or if he just caught a dose of White-Line Fever, and was tapping into the mellow, danceable, velvet jackets and jeans music that would eventually lead to the dreaded disco era.

To be sure, there are some fine arrangements found within these grooves, some great vocals and harmonies, and some nice song writing ... songs like “Georgia,” and “Jump Street” will go down as timeless classics, to be captured, rediscovered, and retuned for the future. Make no mistake, this is not the Boz Scaggs from the Steve Miller days, nor is it the Boz Scaggs who laid down the splendid “Loan Me A Dime,” but it is Boz Scaggs, and whether the the music is too mellow or not one needs to give recognition to the number of albums the man sold, but then Loggins & Messina sold a bunch of records also; though I couldn’t hum one of their tunes if my life depended on it. But “Lido Shuffle,” that number’s been playing somewhere in the back of my head since I first heard it.

As far as engineering, this was one of those vanguard albums that was really clean, full bodied, rich, and notably different in sound quality than the normal music that was coming out; running the same rails as Fleetwood Mac ... bright and clean. The oddest aspect about the release is that for the first time in his career, Boz plays no instruments here, concentrating on his singing only. The album also seems to lack direction, or even a focal point, almost meandering all over the place, leading to an uncomfortable listen for those of us who actually sit down with an album to take it all in. Add to that the notion that an artist like Boz can exist without a solid rock foundation, and you begin to understand why this album fails on almost ever level. The lushness of this release was snatched up by both the changing tastes of progressive FM radio, and the faltering AM stations who were looking for anything to keep them afloat. Is the world any better because Silk Degrees is out there? Perhaps, perhaps not ... it certainly gets lost and overlooked in the shuffle, but then 1976, the bicentennial of this nation was a very weird year to say the least ... over indulgent, over hyped, over emphasized, and for me passed almost unnoticed.

Sometime I wish I had a door in the back of my head, where I could sort of unload alot of stuff that just doesn’t need to be there, but since I don’t, and since Silk Degrees is in my collection, I’ll just make the best of it, and play the three songs that for me were kind of special.

also released as part of a "two for the price of one" set with down two then left.
