1977 Boz Scaggs – Lido Shuffle (US: #11 UK: #13)

1977_Boz_Scaggs_Lido_ShuffleLido Shuffle is a song written by Boz Scaggs and David Paich and introduced on the 1976 Boz Scaggs album, Silk Degrees.

Scaggs recalled: “‘Lido [Shuffle]’ was a song that I’d been banging around. I…took the idea of the shuffle [from] a song that Fats Domino did called ‘The Fat Man’ that had a kind of driving shuffle beat that I used to play on the piano, and I just started kind of singing along with it. Then I showed it to Paich and he helped me fill it out. It ended up being ‘Lido Shuffle’.”

Members of the backup band on “Lido Shuffle” – including David Paich – later formed Toto.

Released as the album’s fourth single, “Lido Shuffle” reached #11 US and #13 in the UK Singles Chart. In Australia the track spent three weeks at #2 as a double A-side hit with “What Can I Say”.
