Seriously! I looked at this picture for five minutes wondering where the seat bar was hiding. Any clues, any idea’s, any thoughts?
I’ll leave you with a tune from the 1978 album, Don’t Look Back, by Boston to help jump start your thought process.
Don’t look back, a new day is breakin
It’s been too long since I felt this way
I don’t mind where I get taken
The road is callin, today is the day
I can see, it took so long just to realize
I’m much too strong not to compromise
Now I see what I am is holding me down
I’ll turn it around

Boston, Self Titled Debut Album 1976
In 1976, at the height of disco music, a rock and roll band burst onto the scene that would take the rest of the 1970′s by storm. That band was Boston, a five man band that brought some fast and furious hard hitting riffs that echo still today. This album was designed to be played as loud as your stereo permitted and then some. And I had just the tools to do it.
The front cover is a depiction of city sized spaceships hurling away from an exploding planet. The largest ship is aptly named “Boston” and it is in search of a new home.
This album, or 8-Track tape, has 8 classic rock tunes each better than the previous tune. I fondly remember being in my car, my 1968 Camaro, equipped with my Motorola 300 watt power booster, with Clarion stereo with 8-Track player, and 14 heart stopping, blood pumping speakers positioned all around the car featuring my 6X9 triax 180 watt Arthur Fulmer speakers.
I would turn the volume up until all the red lights on the power booster were shining bright and then pop in the Boston 8-Track. The song, Foreplay/Long time was a great tune to begin with cruising up the avenue. The song would slowly build up to its peak and then a thumping bass and guitar riff would ring out. It wasn’t loud enough unless your ears bled. Everyone in the neighborhood knew I was coming and going, depending on one’s perspective.
The back cover lists the song titles,
More Than A feeling
Piece Of Mind
Rock And Roll Band
Hitchin A Ride
Something About You
Let Me Take You Home Tonight
The album liner notes simply ask you to “Listen to the record.” They also give a brief history of the band members and how they came together. Tom Scholz was lead guitar, Brad Delp, lead vocals, Barry Goudreau lead guitar, Fran Sheehan, Bass, and Sib Hashian, drums.
I have to agree with the liner notes. Listen to the record. It is an album that became a classic overnight and sustained the test of time and is one of the most popular records of all time. After all, it was more than a feeling…..
Brad Delp, the lead singer of the 1970′s rock band Boston was found dead March 9th, 2007. He lived in New Hampshire and apparently died in his home. Delp was 55 years old.
