In the mid 1970s, Tom Scholz withdrew his life’s savings and used it to record several songs which he had written. By the process of overdubbing, Tom played all the instruments except drums, which were played by his friend Jim Masdea, and Brad Delp sang all of the vocal parts. The resulting demos included 4 songs which attracted the attention of three major record labels and two managers. Following completion of two additional demos which included “More Than a Feeling,” Brad and Tom were signed to Epic Records, released their first album under the name BOSTON in 1976. The album, most of which was recorded by Tom in his basement studio included 5 of the 6 songs embodied on those demo tapes, and became the highest selling debut album of all time.
Many remember where they were when they first heard “More Than a Feeling” or “Hitch a Ride” on the airwaves back in 1976. BOSTON’s self-titled first album has sold over 17 million copies to date, and has seen a resurgence in sales after it was re-mastered by Scholz, along with their second album, “Don’t Look Back,” in 2006. “Amanda,” from Third Stage in 1986, shot to the top of the charts and held a record-breaking stay at #1, in spite of being the only hit single that year not accompanied by a TV video.
With more than 30 million albums sold worldwide, hits like “Peace of Mind,” “Smokin',” and “Rock & Roll Band” are still as ubiquitous on rock and roll radio as they were when they were new.
