Silk Degrees is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Boz Scaggs, released in March 1976 via Columbia Records.

The album was recorded at Davlen Sound Studios and Hollywood Sound Studios, Los Angeles. Among the accompanying musicians, David Paich, Jeff Porcaro and David Hungate would go on to become band members in Toto.  The album was produced by Joe Wissert.

The album marked Scaggs's commercial zenith, a mix of straight pop rock songs ("Jump Street" and "Lido Shuffle"), smooth soul compositions ("What Can I Say" and "Lowdown"), and appealing ballads ("Harbor Lights" and "We're All Alone"). The latter was later a hit for Rita Coolidge.

In a contemporary review for The Village Voice, music critic Robert Christgau praised the album as "white soul with a sense of humor that isn't consumed in self-parody."

"Lowdown" reached the top 5 on the club play, black, disco, and pop charts and also did respectably on the AC (adult contemporary) chart, with its peak at #3 on the pop chart. It earned a Grammy Award, as the Best R&B Song at the Grammy Awards of 1976, and the song is an airplay staple to this day, particularly on AC, oldies, and smooth jazz radio stations.

"It's Over", "What Can I Say", and "Lido Shuffle" reached #38, #42 and #11, respectively, on the pop chart. Scaggs also received Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Best LP Package, Best Pop Vocal by a Male, and Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Male for "Lowdown".

The album peaked at #2 and spent 115 weeks on the Billboard 200. It has been certified five times platinum by the RIAA and remains Scaggs's best selling album.

This LP Record is a Legacy Vinyl Reissue on 180 Gram Superior Audio Quality Vinyl pressed in Europe.
