The album – which featured the hit singles, “Lowdown”, “Lido Shuffle and “We’re All Alone” – reached #2 on the Billboard 200 and became one of the landmark pop albums of the decade selling more than four million copies.
Additional hits from later albums included “Breakdown Dead Ahead”, “Jojo”, “Look What You’ve Done to Me”, “Miss Sun” and “Heart of Mine”. Scaggs’ newest album, A Fool To Care will be released this week and will feature the single, “Last Tango on 16th Street” as well as duets with Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams.
