THE DEBUT Boston album is not only regarded as one of the greatest rock albums of all time but it is also one of the biggest sellers. Its influence was all pervasive and set the standards for years to come. Behind the scenes, however, things were not going as smoothly as they seemed. Indeed, by the turn of the decade the band had all but imploded, with guitarist Barry Goudreau being the first to head off for pastures new. Initially, Goudreau recorded a well-received solo album, but a part of him still longed to be a member of a fully functioning band. With this goal in mind, he set about forming a new outfit, named, rather enigmatically, Orion The Hunter. Featuring lead vocalist Fran Cosmo - a man who would, somewhat ironically, later go on to actually join Boston - bassist Bruce Smith and former Heart drummer Michael DeRosier, the quartet spent nearly a year crafting a selection of songs that would form the basis of a quite remarkable album. Recorded at the renowned Power Station Studios in New York, the album was universally praised for its wealth of great songs, progressive arrangements and a sound built on the very foundations of Boston itself – Barry’s guitar work in particular ringing with that unmistakeable tone. A truly first rate record and long recognised as a classic of its kind. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with Barry Goudreau & Fran Cosmo and additional photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
