Tired of waiting around for Tom Scholz to finish the latest Boston album, most of the band got together and recorded this above average album. There are a couple of really great tunes here- "Dreams" (the best Boston song that Boston never recorded) is worth the price of the album alone, while "Life is What We Make It" & "Sailin' Away" would cover shipping & handling. All-in-all, this is better than Boston's Walk On.
What's most interesting is the addition of Fran Cosmo to the line up. The story goes that he was added because the real Fran from Boston didn't want to participate. Fran Cosmo of course stayed with Barry after this project for Orion the Hunter ("So You Ran"), while Brad Delp returned to Boston for Third Stage. Brad then rejoined Barry (his brother-in-law) to form RTZ, while Fran then joined Boston as one of the many blended voices attempting to recreate Brad's voice for Boston's Walk On. Brad then recorded new songs for Boston's Greatest Hits package, while still singing for RTZ. The revolving singers is a very interesting story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barry Goudreau from the band Boston September 24, 2004
By Gitters
Format:Audio CD
In 1980,Barry Goudreau of Boston decided to make a solo album.He brought most of Boston with him for his self titled album.Brad Delp handles the vocals and Sib also from Boston plays the drums, I'm not sure on who the rest of the band is, I have a cassette so it doesn't say anywhere.Goudreau's solo album, should have been Boston's third album like previous reviewers have stated.This album has the Boston sound!If you like 1976's Boston and it's 1978 follow up Don't Look Back you will like Barry Goudreau!A few highlights off the album include: Hard Luck, NOthin' to Lose, Dreams, and Sailin' Away. Possibly the best album nobody remembers or has heard of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Boston sound, but without Tom. August 22, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album features band members from the group Boston, and is very similar in sound. If you like power chords and rock and roll, this album is a must have.

Having scanned youtube for old videos of Boston I stumbled upon Dreams by Barry Goudreau and Brad Delp and was blown away by discovering what sounded like a new great Boston song.
Of course it was wasnt new so I investigated more and found there was a whole album released in 1980 by most of the current and 1 future Boston members so I ordered it on Amazon and for the passed 2 weeks have fallen in love with it.
Its so great i cant believe this was hiding from me for 30 years and in 1980 I was a big Boston fan but living in Australia we were never getting the more obscure releases unless you had overseas friends or found it by chance in one of the few import record stores that existed.
There isnt a song on this album I dont like.
Even Fran Cosmo comes up with the catchy Nothin to lose and Leavin tonight which is a cross between The Cars and Boston then finishes with Cold cold world where he tips his hat to Queen.
Dreams could have been a big hit if it had Boston's name on it but it wasnt to be.
All in all it sounds like it was recorded quickly and it sounds fresh to this day without too many bells and whistles as our esteemed Mr Scholz would have added with his endless oodling of the knobs on the mixing desk.
I love it and recommend it to any Boston fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars the best of boston's spinoffs May 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
i was a huge boston fan back in the day. i purchased anything i could that was made by former boston members (RTZ, orion the hunter and this album). This is by far the best of all them and closest to the Boston sound. While there seems to be alot of boston fans that like the RTZ albums, i just never thought they were really that good. this album, however is very good. not as good as "dont look back" but better than "third stage". i never listened to "walk on" or "corporate america" so i can't compare it to those later boston albums.

3.0 out of 5 stars a suburb of Boston October 31, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're reading these reviews, you must be a big Boston fan. Who else would even know about a solo album by Barry Goudreu? Well, that's why I bought this CD also - because I love Boston, especially the first two albums where Barry was a big part of that band. His solo album is very good, and sounds a lot like Boston's debut and Don't Look Back, but it falls short of the Boston brilliance. Yes, it's the same band minus Tom Scholz, but without him it's not quite the same. Barry, Brad Delp, Fran Cosmo, and Sib Hashian are all excellent musicians and know how to make a great album. However, it's like "Boston lite" or a "Boston B sides" collection. I've read other reviews saying this should have been the third Boston album - I disagree because it's not nearly on the level of the s/t album, DLB, or Third Stage. Barry Goudreau is not up to the high standards of a "real" Boston album, but it's still a great listen for diehard Bostonheads. I like Barry Goudreau better than RTZ or Orion but not as much as Boston.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like Boston! November 4, 2011
By John
Format:Audio CD
This solo project released by Barry Goudreau of Boston during 1980. This features Brad Delp on vocals as well as future Boston and Orion the Hunter singer Fran Cosmo. I think the best song of the album is "Nothin' To Lose". The sound of the album is very similar to the early Boston demos, the sound is something that anyone who wants to hear more Boston like music would enjoy! Also check out RTZ, another Boston related band with Delp and Goudreau.
