Product Description

Remastered from original masters and new 12-page booklet that contains new photos, new liner notes. Previously unreleased bonus tracks recorded live December 18, 1976 by King Biscuit Flower Hour at The Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA. Live tracks produced by Boston. Mixed in 2006 by Niko Bolas. 'Boston' is the self-titled debut album by American rock band Boston, released in 1976. The album broke the band into the mainstream, with several blockbuster hard rock hits.

"Better music through science" was the Epic Records-coined slogan that Boston leader Tom Scholz hated, but this masterwork of studio-happy, high-school-parking-lot music earned it. Scholz fine-tuned his overdubbed guitar orchestra to a pitch that a thousand subsequent album-rockers couldn't resist. And why should they? Where the band's later records were hardly worthy of note, Boston pulls together classic after classic: "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind," "Hitch a Ride." The pseudo-cosmic ambience invites scoffs as the year 2000 recedes into the past, but it's really just part of the disc's charm. Let it take you home tonight. --Rickey Wright
