Best known for his classic hits in the mainstream pop music, Boz Skaggs always takes back his roots, musical style, and influence during his early years in Oklahoma and Texas. As a matter of fact, Skaggs found himself immersed in the different genres of music like blues, R&B, country, rock, and pop. The distinct American music has brought him to venturing on to being more of a blues singer.

In one of his interviews, he revealed that he doesn’t even remember himself playing and performing in public. However, he clearly recalls the feeling of the very first night he was paid for music. He described it as something that is “pretty cool“.

Furthermore, Skaggs’ career has spanned for over five decades with his hits that took him to greater heights. He was very much known for his two classics such as “We’re All Alone“, and “Lido Shuffle“. These are just two of his hits that stormed the music charts as well as covered by other equally talented artists.

In this article, we will feature his 1976 heartfelt ballad that conquered the hearts of fans during that time.

About the Song

Before American recording artist Rita Coolidge made it a hit in 1977, “We’re All Alone” was first introduced by Boz Skaggs to fame and to the country music charts. Skaggs wrote the song in 1976 as a part of his seventh album, Silk Degrees. In addition, American record producer Joe Wissert produced this four-minute song under the Columbia Records label.

There are a number of artists who have recorded the song. American singer-actor Frankie Valli released his own version later in the same year when Skaggs released the original. On the other hand, Canadian singer Bruce Murray also hit Canadian music charts with his version released in the following year. Others followed such as the versions of The Walker Brothers, Three Degrees, and of course, the most notable and popular which is Rita Coolidge’s cover.

Coolidge released her version in June 1977, which was produced by American portrait artist, talent manager, and record producer David Anderle. It was a massive hit entering the music charts in seven countries. Most noteworthy, Coolidge’s version placed no. 1 at the U.S. Billboard Adult Contemporary and also peaked at no. 1 on the Canadian RPM Adult Contemporary.
