Smooth as "Silk"

The last of the great trifecta of late 70s albums Boz did for Columbia. Although his musical roots are in the blues and country-rock, it was the seamlessly layered production of pop, R&B and soul vibes that made Boz a household name. "Middle Man" is sometimes overlooked -- it would have been hard for anyone to top the success of "Silk Degrees" -- and that record's follow-up, 1977's "Down Two Then Left" was regarded as something of a disappointment. All three albums have their pleasures and treasures, though, and are classics of their kind. Boz long ago abandoned this genre and went back to the blues and AC-oriented pop, but "Breakdown Dead Ahead," "JoJo," "Do Like You Do In New York" and the utterly sublime "Simone" survive to tell part of the story of R&B-infused pop that made listening to FM radio in the late 70s so much fun.
