Boz Scaggs ‎– Slow Dancer (1974)

Slow Dancer is the sixth solo studio album by American vocalist/guitarist Boz Scaggs, released in 1974 on Columbia Records. The lavish sweep of “You Make It so Hard (To Say No)” and the watery glimmer of “Take It for Granted” exhibit a newfound elegance and chivalry from the crooner. Elsewhere, the cutting thrust of “Angel Lady (Come Just in Time)” and “Hercules” show the singer’s headier side. Soul brother Johnny Bristol — whose own “I Got Your Number” is covered here — influenced and produced the record with proportionate grit and polish.
