Tag Archive: 70’s


Not really… The supposed “good old days” are merely those of our -relative- youth; what was the so called status quo as we became young adults.  However, the values that were instilled by our parents, and those we held on to in our adult years have been roundfiled in these warped times.  The videos are a reminder of the changing cultural morays; the loss of society’s sense of right and wrong, what it meant to be earnest, and truthful.

“Tsunami” Debut LP’s –

Once in a while there is a definitive effort in a debut album, which takes the airwaves by storm.  Such was the case for Boston:

Boston is the debut studio album by American rock band Boston. Produced by Tom Scholz and John Boylan, the album was released on August 25, 1976, in the United States by Epic Records. Scholz had studied classical piano in his childhood and became involved in the Boston music scene in the late 1960s. He subsequently started to concentrate on demos recorded in his apartment basement with singer Brad Delp, and although their previous group, Mother’s Milk, had received numerous rejection letters from major record labels in the early 1970s, by 1975, the demo tape had fallen into the hands of CBS-owned Epic Records, who signed the band.

Epic wanted the band to record in Los Angeles with a record producer, but Scholz was unwilling and wanted to record the album in his basement studio, so he hired Boylan to run interference with the label. In an elaborate ruse, Scholz tricked the label into thinking the band was recording on the West Coast, when in reality, the bulk was being tracked solely by Scholz at his Massachusetts home. The album’s contents are a complete recreation of the band’s demo tape, and contain songs written and composed many years prior. The album’s style, often referred to as the “Boston sound”, was developed through Scholz’s love of classical music, melodic hooks and guitar-heavy rock groups such as the Kinks and the Yardbirds.

The album was released by Epic in August 1976 and sold extremely well, breaking sales records and becoming one of the best-selling debut albums of all time.  The album’s singles, most notably “More Than a Feeling” and “Long Time”, were both AM and FM hits, and nearly the entire album receives constant rotation on classic rock radio. The album has been referred to as a landmark in 1970s rock and has been included on many lists of essential albums. The album has sold 17 million copies in the United States alone and 25 million worldwide.

Another such LP was Mike and the Mechanics.  Including two top ten hits, this LP contained Silent Running, Hanging By A Thread, All I need is a Miracle, and Par Avion.

Mike And The Mechanics
Par Avion
Another day has passed me by
And there’s an island in the sun
To see me through
Another day in paradise
But there’s no reason, there’s no rhyme
Without you

Here comes the night (night)
Here comes the dreaming of you
Breathing your love in me
Here comes the night (night)
Here comes the feeling I’ve been
Waiting here for so long
I’ve been waiting here for so long

There’s a time and there’s a place
When we can share the silver night
Silent room
In my bed an empty space

Cos there’s no other in my life
Only you

Here comes the night (night)
Here comes the dreaming of you
Breathing your love in me
Here comes the night (night)
Here comes the feeling I’ve been
Waiting here for so long
I’ve been waiting here for so long

Here comes the night
Here comes the dreaming of you
Breathing your love in me
Here comes the night (night)
Here comes the feeling I’ve been
Waiting here for so long
I’ve been waiting here for so long
