Boz Scaggs
A Fool To Care (429)

William Royce Scaggs has never enjoyed the sort of following in the UK that he has commanded across the big pond but many of us are nonetheless aware of hisSilk Degrees album smash (and subsequent single hits). Missing in action throughout most of the '80s he has since been pretty busy (touring with Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald) and then out of the blue he hit a purple patch from 2001 with R&B cracker Dig and then again on 2013's excellent blues rocker Memphis and now we have this equally excellent soul belter complete with strings, horns, guests (Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams) and nary a bad track to be found.
