Boston "Don't Look Back"

Rosa me a pedido algo de Boston, en este blog tambien podeis escuchar "More than a feeling". Espero que lo disfruteis.

El grupo Boston se crea a mediados de 1969 por el ingeniero del MIT Tom Scholz como guitarrista y principal compositor, además del vocalista Brad Delp, el guitarrista Barry Goudreau y el baterista Jim Masdea. Tras un inicio algo incierto, en el cual presentaron varios demos, el baterista Jim Masdea deja el grupo y es reemplazado por Sib Hashian, además de que el bajista Fran Sheehan se incorpora a las filas del grupo.

Es así, como en 1976 y gracias a las composiciones ingeniosas del Scholz, el grupo lanza en 1976 su primer álbum titulado simplemente «Boston» y colocando inmediatamente éxtios en las listas de popularidad con la clásica «More than a Feeling» y con «Peace Of Mind». El trabajo de Scholz se puede ver, asimismo, en la enigmática «Hitch a Ride», una de las piezas más completas del disco. La voz de Delp es, además, un total acierto y se nota cierta innovación en el sonido del grupo a comparación de otras bandas de la época.

Para 1978, el grupo lanza su segundo álbum titulado «Don´t Look Back», el cual es de notable menor calidad que su antecesor y no deja muy satisfecho a Scholz, que acusa a la disquera de haberlo presionado para este material; a pesar de esto, el disco alcanza ventas que le llevan al disco de platino y la canción que da título al disco se convierte en un éxito comercial. Luego de esto, comienza un litigio legal entre disquera y grupo que durará años y que obligará a esperar el siguiente álbum de Boston ocho años. El guitarrista Gary Phil sustituye a Guodreau y Fran Sheehan deja también al grupo. Scholz financia sus grabaciones vendiendo equipo, debido al asunto entre CBS y Boston. En 1982 el baterista Sib Hashian deja al grupo.

En 1986 se lanza, por fin, «Third Stage» y la canción «Amanda» llega inmediatamente a las listas de popularidad; esta canción es de un sonido muy distinto a las anteriores, una balada muy de los años ochenta acertada por Scholz y la gran voz de Delp. El álbum alcanza disco de platino. Delp deja Boston en 1990 y es sustituido por Fran Cosmo.

Letra de Boston "Don't Look Back"

Don't look back
A new day is breakin'
It's been too long since
I felt this way
I don't mind where I get taken
The road is callin'
Today is the day

I can see
It took so long just to realize
I'm much too strong
Now to compromise
Now I see what I am is holding me down
I'll turn it around, oh yes I will

I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin'

It's a bright horizon
and I'm awakin' now
Oh I see myself in a brand new way
The sun is shinin'
The clouds are breakin'
'Cause I can't lose now,
there's no game to play

I can tell
There's no more time left to criticize
[Más Letras en es.mp3lyrics.org/xwl]
I've seen what I could not recognize
Everthing in my life was leading me on
But I can be strong, oh yes i can

I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin'
Far away and left behind, left behind

Oh the sun is shinin'

(guitar solo)

Don't look back
A new day is breakin'
It's been too long since
I felt this way
I don't mind where I get taken
The road is callin'
Today is the day

I can see
It took so long just to realize
I'm much too strong
Now to compromise
Now I see what I am is holding me down
I'll turn it around, oh yes I will

I finally see the dawn arriving
I see beyond the road I'm driving
Far away and left behind

Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back
Don't look back...
