Default For all of us "OLD FARTS". Some "Feel good about when we were kids" music.

That album + Walkman = tinnitus.

Still have the tinnitus and the cassette, which is in my c-5.

A classic album. I have countless memories listening to that album.

Phenomenal record. Still a YUGE fan to this day. Not only that, some of the best distorted guitar sounds ever put to record.

I bought a t-shirt with that album cover on it at their concert.

That first album isn’t pedals. It’s his gold top into cranked Plexis with some EQ added. His Rockman series of pedals came after in an attempt to duplicate his sound.

He also had a HELL of a time getting those tones in a live setting.

Great album but Dawnie lifts the needed whenever "More Than a Feeling" starts playing.

Boston (1976) - The benchmark.
Don't Look Back (1978) - the follow up. Strong, but not up to the level of the original. But what would be?
Third Stage (1986) - Had it's moments. "Amanda" reminded me of something from the 1st album.
Walk On (1994) - Singer Delp boogies. It's a Boston album but weak.
Corporate America (2002) - Scholz goes all in with his hatred of capitalism.
Life, Love & Hope (2013) - I own it, but there's not a lot to really dig into here.

I seem young here sometimes is because it's therapy for me. Very few things i take serious here. When you're in 6th grade i was drafted during Vietnam. One thing you didn't do. I saw Jimi Hendrix in concert another thing you didn't do and i could go on and on.

I saw them twice in San Diego in 76 or 77. I still have the original vinyl LP and CD. A true classic.
