This early show from Boston's 1977 appearance in Long Beach was recorded while the band was making Don't Look Back, their second multi-platinum release, which was released that year. The band was still promoting the first album, and most of this show consists of songs from that classic Boston record, which yielded hits such as "More Than A Feeling," "Rock & Roll Band," "Something About You," "Smokin'," and "Long Time." They do, however, offer up "A Man I'll Never Be," which, at the time, had yet to be recorded. NOTE: This is not the show recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour...it was the second show that night that was used. You will notice subtle differences with the songs as compared to the second show. The songs 'Television Politician' and 'Don't Be Afraid', included here, did not appear on the KBFH recording.
Yes the giant "City guitar". Did you get a chance to listen to this recording? I just cant say enough how awesome it is, seriously awesome. I have the other LA shows also, but this one is sweet.

One of my favorite bands of that era. I can remember playing their record, yes an actual vinyl record, when I was a kid and jamming out. And who can forget that giant colorful UFO on the album cover.
