This cover ranks as one of my favorites of all time.
The band BOSTON was scheduled to be the first concert I ever attended. I’d picked up tickets for a show in the area in support of their first album. There was a problem, illness running through the band and crew(flu I believe), and the show was postponed, stuck on the end of their tour. It turned out to be the last thing they did for about five years before they released a second album, a train wreck compared to the first, one of the great rock albums in history. That they didn’t win a Grammy for best new band, beaten by one of those one hit wonders that nobody remembers today, is still a suspicious win in my mind(back then anything that was metal, or approaching it was disdained pretty much.
Some of my favorites from that classic:
An amusing note on this one. I babysat for my sister one night so that she, along with my brother-in-law, could go see a movie in which they were interested. I had this album, vinyl on a turn table, playing and I happened to notice my two year old niece standing in front of the speakers while this song was playing, her right foot just a-tapping with the beat.
