BOSTON

The Seventies get dumped on a lot, but looking back it was the right decade for me to grow up in. Disco was everywhere but I would have none of it. I was a long haired Mexican kid in a Led Zeppelin tour jersey and proud of it. 




I was twelve when Boston released their first album. Like everyone who listened to Hard Rock FM radio, I remember being blown away by their sound. I also remember the agonizingly long wait for the second album ( I was the first among my friends to have a copy, on 8-track no less).  Everyone acknowledges "More than a feeling" and "Long time" as the hits from the Boston album, but I want to toss a shout-out to "Something about you"  a hard rocking song with great guitar work. A song made for  night time driving in the city.
