    Boston - Boston
    ————————————
    Boston is an American rock band from namesake Boston, Massachusetts, that had its most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s. The band's core members on their most popular recordings included multi-instrumentalist founder and leader Tom Scholz, who played the majority of instruments on the debut album, and lead vocalist Brad Delp, among a number of other musicians who varied from album to album. Boston's best-known songs include "More Than a Feeling", "Peace of Mind", "Foreplay/Long Time", "Rock and Roll Band", "Smokin'", "Don't Look Back", "A Man I'll Never Be", and "Amanda". The band has sold more than 75 million records worldwide, including 31 million albums in the United States, of which 17 million were from its self-titled debut album and seven million were for its second album, Don't Look Back, making the group one of the world's best-selling artists. Altogether, the band has released six studio albums over a career spanning over 46 years. Boston was ranked the 63rd best hard rock artist by VH1.

    Boston is the eponymous debut studio album by American rock band Boston. Produced by Tom Scholz and John Boylan, it was released on August 25, 1976, in the United States by Epic Records. Scholz had studied classical piano in his childhood and became involved in the Boston music scene in the late 1960s. He subsequently started to concentrate on demos recorded in his apartment basement with singer Brad Delp; they had received numerous rejection letters from major record labels in the early 1970s. By 1975, the demo tape had fallen into the hands of CBS-owned Epic Records, who signed them.

    Boston's self titled album is good not just for the reason that some of the songs are iconic but alos that there is a sort of unique sound that the band uses in it's music that makes it so that whenever you hear their music you can always recognise it. My favourite songs from this album are 'More than a feeling' and 'Smokin'' seeing as they have amazing guitar solos. This album is a good buy as it isnt too expensive and would be a good choice for any rock enthusiast as it is easy to listen to.
