BOSTON...Don't Look Back  (1978)
Don't Look Back was released 35 years ago in 1978 and it reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Album Charts.  I'll give it a 4 out of 5 stars and is highly recommended.  Boston did fall into the envious but yet dreadful trap of having to try and match and/or meet the expectations of their previous HUGE hit album Boston, their debut.  Sales and the quality of Don't Look Back do not match those of Boston but that takes nothing away from this record.  It is quite good.  In my opinion the opening title track is better than anything on Boston.  The guitar riffs are fantastic.  "Feelin' Satisfied" and "Party" are also some very cool highlights.  Pull your old record out and enjoy it again, today
