4.0 out of 5 stars SCAGGS fans will appreciate this CD Nov. 29 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Boz Scaggs was once a permanent staple of the TOP 40 format during the late 1970s and mid-1980s.

He owned an instantly identifiable vocal quality that the rock elite, critics and the public highly respected.
His hits stand the test of time but could no longer chart Top 40 in these days of over-processed lead vocals. This collection is a gift to his fans.

Should you want to better familiarize yourself with and add one of the best pop-rock vocalist of that era into your musical library, I suggest purchasing this CD to obtain a slight taste of his unique musical flair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great memories of the 80's Dec 25 2013
By Ruby
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a big fan then and now I remember why. Boz Scaggs writes some of the sweetest riffs I've ever heard. Miss Sun, What can I say, and JOJO just want to get me up and moving. The lyrics are excellent and the band is tight.

4.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Solid disc of Scaggs' '70s hits Oct. 10 2006
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This title was originally issued in 1980 as a 10-track LP, and reissued verbatim on CD in 1990. The album's intent was to provide a hits-oriented overview of Scaggs' 1970s solo work, focusing on the years surrounding his 1976 multi-platinum breakthrough LP, "Silk Degrees." This reworking of the "Hits!" title expands upon the original theme with six additional tracks gathered from late '70s releases, and drops the song "You Can Have Me Anytime."

As with the original ten-track release, this fifteen-track reissue picks up Scaggs' story in 1972 with the Muscle Shoals styled "Dinah Flo" and 1974's Motown influenced "You Make it So Hard (to Say No)." The expanded track lineup adds the string-lined title ballad of 1974's "Slow Dancer," which helps show that the transition from 1974 to 1976 was more evolution than reinvention. U.S. radio listeners will remember the disco-tinged soul and jazz of 1976's "Silk Degrees" LP as a key part of the bicentennial soundtrack. The original "Hits!" lineup of "We're All Alone," "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle" is augmented here with "What Can I Say," "It's Over," and "Harbor Lights." And with 60% of the original album now included here, listeners may start to think (quite correctly) that "Silk Degrees" is a greatest-hits package in and of itself.

Scaggs' follow-up LP, "Down Two Then Left" was enough of a commercial disappointment to have been ignored on the original "Hits!" release; here it's represented by the soulful "Hard Times." The collection is filled out with a healthy dose of Scaggs' decade-end work, including "Jo Jo" and "Breakdown Dead Ahead" from his 1980 release "Middle Man," and his contribution to the "Urban Cowboy" soundtrack, "Look What You've Done to Me." The remaining new addition to the original track lineup is "Heart of Mine," taken from Scaggs' 1988 return to recording, "Other Roads."

At 64-minutes this is a generous single disc, but not nearly as comprehensive as 1998's 2-CD set "My Time: The Anthology (1969-1997)." This is perfect for those who (1) want more breadth than they'll get by buying "Silk Degrees," (2) need less depth than the 2-CD anthology, and (3) are fans of the hits rather than Scaggs and his individual albums. If a few of the titles here grab you, this (or "Silk Degrees") are the way to go. If the '70s focus is too narrow, look up the anthology for early classics ("Someone Loan Me a Dime") and material from the '90s. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belongs on Every Music Lover's Shelf Oct. 25 2006
By G. L Vince - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I was a little kid and VH-1 still played music videos, Boz Scaggs hit it big in the late eighties with "Heart of Mine", which I still believe is the best pop ballad of the decade. Years would pass and I would pick up albums he would release, the best which was last year's domestic release of "Fade Into Light".

One thing I never aquired was some of his earlier work. I don't even own a copy of "Silk Degrees"! But when I was at the record store and I stumbled upon "Hits!", I found it impossible not to pick it up. It is a refreshing album for a fall afternoon drive. Scaggs is truly one of the great voices of modern times and this collection is proof.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hits!" Upgraded Sept. 26 2007
By musicfanatic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This upgraded version of the previously released "Hits!" is certainly an improvement over the one released in 1980. There are more songs to show the talent of Boz Scaggs, which is needed in a single disc. The sound is great and it has added songs from "Silk Degrees", which is a treat. I, personally think it's a good overview of his early years. If you are a fan of Boz Scaggs' early work, get this, it has many of the songs that you'll want, especially if you are more of a casual fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Remastering Brings Hits to Life! June 19 2007
By Iowahawkeye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I know that Bob Ludwig at Gateway tends to overaccentuate the high end on his remastering endeavors, but when "Jo Jo" bursted into my speakers on track #2, i was BLOWN away; it was as if the Summer of 1980 blew my way like a big beautiful gust of wind. It sounded GREAT! I've ended up enjoying this collection much more than i anticipated, and am glad i waited until the remastered/expanded edition came out to finally purchase "Hits"! Was also glad to see Sony/Legacy remaster Silk Degrees earlier this year as well, finally. If you're also a Toto fan (which i admit i am--they played on both Silk Degrees and Middle Man), you'll love this collection. I haven't been able to get Jo Jo out of my head all week! Thanks for reading!

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's Georgia? Feb. 22 2013
By J. Michael Abernathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
All I've got to say is how do you leave the song Georgia off any hits compilation? You've got to be kidding me that they didn't include it here.
