Notes: This show was seeded some months back, but mine is ripped from the original silver CD pressing.
The SuperSonic bootleg label put out a gem of a product with this show. Not only is the sound quality out of this world, but the artwork is stunning as well.
The performance itself is truly remarkable. It was recorded only a few weeks into the tour for the debut album and shows a band giving their absolute all. Brad Delp sounds great! Sholtz and Goudreau trade leads frequently and the fireworks they create are spectacular. Bass player Sheehan and drummer Hashian, hold down the grooves well throughout and contribute serviceable background vocals as well. Considering Sholtz played almost everything on the studio record himself and Delp did lead and background vocals, the parts are covered very well by the live band. Though, the background vocals can't match 4 or 5 overdubbed Delps.
Highlights include a very early version of "A Man I'll Never Be", (which would later appear on the Don't Look Back album) and a blistering version of "Foreplay/Long Time" as well as a few gems that never made it on their studio albums.
All in all, a hell of a show and one that no Boston fan should be without!..<- Info taken from original .nfo file>.
