This has nothing much to do with the previous post on Boston, Massachusetts, besides the name of the band. The band was from the that city, and an MIT-educated (Master's Degree) mechanical engineer named Tom Scholz was the organizer and leader. With his own equipment, Scholtz created this unique electric-guitar sound that Hitch a Ride here demonstrates the best in the solo.
About every song on Boston's self-titled debut album from 1976 is great stuff, and we'll have to put a few more on in the future. Don't let the name of the city deter you from listening!
The following musician list is for the Boston album in general.
Brad Delp – lead and harmony vocals; acoustic guitar on "Let Me Take You Home Tonight"
Tom Scholz – electric guitars, lead guitar, acoustic guitars, clavinet, organ, bass guitar, design consultant, remastering, liner notes, production, engineering
