Boz Scaggs - Lowdown (Live on SNL - 1976) by uselesslandline
For those of you don't understand the gravity of this performance,I have created a "Teachers Edition" with some examples of questionsto get a good discussion started in your class.
1. How Cool is Boz Scaggs? Who knew?
Example: He's duder than dude ; I had no clue. On key like a MF.
2. How much cocaine do you think the guitar player is on?
Ex.: Like, a whole fucken lot. Piles.
3. How long do you think the guitar player kept that gig?
Ex.: Well he blew the solo for sure when he tried to reach upbehind the nut - no homo - then again, the rest of the band is sodick-tight, it's kind of cool to see him vent some steam.
4. How tight is the drummer?
5. Do you notice any famous session musicians in the band?
Ex.: G-Otch says that Murph from the Blues Brothers horn sectionis up in there.other questions..
6. Do you think Will Ferrell was inspired by the first flautist?
7. Which of the fine Black lady backup singers is the hottest?
I've talked about this on "Strut but got nothing but crickets. FINALLY
AND HOW DOPE IS THIS DUDES SUIT?!?!??!

Those Buddy Guy fuck-faces he makes have got to GO.
The first flautist was actually Blue Lou Marini (from the Blues Brothers and the SNL house band).
PS I know a guy who looks like Boz, I never realized it til now. I always thought he looked like someone. I should buy him a pink jacket.
Other than that,
definitley got a little too big for his Sergio Valente's right there.
WELCOME TO THE PLEASUREDOME
No way it can do this experience justice.
When the end comes and he's freestyling while teetering back and forth on the verge of collapsing and breaking out the falsetto?
i swear i've seen the essence of john ritter/serge gainsbourg/ jeremy steig/ maynard fergusson/ leroy gomez haunting this video.
it definite competes with the Boz Scagg version!
Plaese to post the HK cover of "Lowdown." That souns dope! Do they sing it in Cantonese?
i need a few more hrs, i'm still at work out here.
if this is the same record/version some dude was selling on ebay last year the audio i heard was
post that shit
