Comments
No Boston fan should be without this bootleg. The story is that the tapes that made
this bootleg were stolen from Tom Scholz' garbage. A more believable story is that
these recordings came from one of the demo tapes sent out to record companies before
Boston was a band. Who knows which story is true? But it is rumored that Tom now shreds
his used recording tapes before throwing them out.

The sound quality is a bit rough, but considering the fact that these are early demos it
is passable. In fact, for an amateur demo recording it is quite good. And if the legend
is true, they were apparently good enough to land Boston a recording deal.

But the really neat thing about these six demos is the early musical directions that were
being explored. For instance, "Life Isn't Easy", an early version of Something About You,
goes in a surprising new direction other than what we're familiar with on the finished
released product. My jaw dropped the first time I heard this song. I could not believe
how different it was!

This bootleg is legendary. The story is that the tapes that made this bootleg were stolen from Tom Scholz's garbage. A more believable story is that these recordings came from one of the demo tapes sent out to record companies before Boston was a band. Who knows which story is true? But it is rumored that Tom now shreds his used recording tapes before throwing them out. :-)

For instance, Life Isn't Easy, an early version of Something About You, goes in a surprising new direction than what we familiar with on the finished released product. My jaw dropped the first time I heard this song. I could not believe how different it was!

The arwork is fairly simple. My LP came simply in a plain white jacket with a black and white photo printed on a greenish sheet of paper slipped behind the shrink-wrap. The photo is unique in that it is rare. I believe the source for the photo is an old color poster.

Bootlegs are cool, especially the classic LP bootlegs. This one is famous. No serious Boston collecor should be without this one. However, be aware that the songs on this LP are also found on a few CD bootlegs.

Really cool disc and absolutely essential to Boston fans/collectors.
