Flashback: Boston Goes Top 5

It was 36 years ago today (December 4th, 1976), that Boston’s self-titled debut album peaked at Number Three on the Billboard 200 album chart, where it stayed for five weeks. Since then, nearly every song from the album continues to receive heavy airplay on classic rock radio — most notably the album’s lead single, “More Than A Feeling,” along with “Peace Of Mind,” “Foreplay/Long Time,” “Rock And Roll Band,” “Smokin’,” and “Hitch A Ride.” Since its August 25th, 1976 release, Boston has sold over 17 million copies.

Boston leader Tom Scholz, who was the main force behind the album, writing the songs and recording most of the instrumental parts at his home studio, says creating the album doesn’t seem all that long ago to him: “The amazing thing to me is that I don’t feel 30 years older, and, y’know, nothing seems to have changed with me — I still have the same equipment in the studio, the same guitars, the same everything. I do feel like, sometimes, like I’m sort of in a time warp and I don’t change, but the rest of the world is sort of changing around me.”

Boston lead singer Brad Delp committed suicide on March 9th, 2007 at the age of 55.
