Product Description

Product Description

Special Limited Deluxe Collector s Edition / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / Features Barry Goudreau (Boston), Fran Cosmo (Boston) and Michael DeRosier (Heart) / 12 page full colour booklet 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and band involvement. THE DEBUT Boston album is not only regarded as one of the greatest rock albums of all time but it is also one of the biggest sellers. Its influence was all pervasive and set the standards for years to come. Behind the scenes, however, things were not going as smoothly as they seemed. Indeed, by the turn of the decade the band had all but imploded, with guitarist Barry Goudreau being the first to head off for pastures anew. Initially, Goudreau recorded a well-received solo album, but a part of him still longed to be a member of a fully functioning band. With this goal in mind, he set about forming a new outfit, named, rather enigmatically, Orion The Hunter. Featuring lead vocalist Fran Cosmo - a man who would, somewhat ironically, later go on to actually join Boston - bassist Bruce Smith and former Heart drummer Michael De Rosier, the quartet spent nearly a year crafting a selection of songs that would form the basis of a quite remarkable album. Recorded at the renowned Power Station Studios in New York, the album was universally praised for its wealth of great songs, progressive arrangements and a sound built on the very foundations of Boston itself Barry s guitar work in particular ringing with that unmistakeable tone. A truly first rate record and long recognised as a classic of its kind.

Excellent album, very Bostonish, but without Tom. I first bought this album upon release on tape and have now just ordered the CD.
Every song on the album satisfies different moods and I recommend it to anyone who listens to Boston, REO, Styx etc

Another fine release from Rock Candy,who's remit appears to be resurrecting long lost,forgotten gems such as this.

Orion The Hunter brain child of Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau,having departed Boston, Goudreau set about forming his own version of the band.

I originally purchased this on vinyl back in '84,a day of release purchase no less,spent the next month or so playing it to death,THIS was the next big band ,i was convinced,history proved otherwise.

Side 1 in the old days contained 4 classic AOR/ROCK moments,listen to those vocals,the harmonies,the stun guitar solos,absolute AOR heaven, still cant believe 'So You Ran' isnt revered as a classic,likewise 'Dark and Stormy.,there is no justice sometimes.

Truth be told the remaining 5 tracks,were never going to live up to the albums opening quartet.Thats not to say they aint worth listening to,certainly 'Joanne' keeps the quality level sky high while the rest sound like JOURNEY(when they grow a pair and rock out,only the rather dated 'Carribean sound effects on 'Too Much In Love' spoil the moment.

The razor sharp production on this remaster,highlights that it was of its time,some may baulk at the electronic effects/programming etc,i prefer to look back fondly at a moment in time that heralded a fantastic album and sadly a false dawn as far as this band goes.

Rock Candy have done themselves and the disc proud,with a superb remaster with informative booklet.First class release.

Better things were to come with RTZ but this is a decent cd. The production could have been a little better but there are some good tracks with a hint of the Boston sound. I actually prefer this to Barry's solo album which unfortunately led to him having to leave Boston.

Bought this when it first came out on vinyl. The album has a very BOSTON feel to it, not least from Brad's great guitar work and harmony leads. Fran Cosmo turns in a very fine vocal performance, which is polished off with a very suave and polished production job. On the whole, all the songs are good, however the first 4 really stand out. This is classic US AOR music and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who loves the genre. While your at it, check out RTZ as well, Brads other project, with the sadly now deceased Brad Delp (RIP). Five out of five in all areas *****
