Being a Boston fan from day one must have been very tough on the devoted. Tom Sholtz, guitarst, keyboardist, and a meticulous studio wizard that makes Mutt Lange recordings sound like Nirvana, worked at a snail's pace, taking almost 3 years to record their follow-up to their mega-hit debut, and calling that 'rushed'. It took 6 years each for the next two albums to be recorded and released, and by that time, Boston was basically Sholtz's solo project.
Through it all, as this cohesive collection shows, the sound remains the same, layered, harmonized, smooth, crisp. Best of Boston collects 5 songs from their debut, a few more each from Don't look Back and Third Stage, and one from the underrated '94 release, Walk On. It flows like a good album should, with some songs going right into the next just as they did on the original albums. Very few things are missing except notably, Hitch a Ride, but that would have placed too much reliance on their debut. Another song from Third Stage and Walk On would've also been nice, they're underrepresented here.
The new songs are considerably more problematic. Higher Power is a great song, bringing back original vocalist Brad Delp back into the mix, but two versions of it are unneccesary. The Sholtz-sung Tell Me is very weak, meandering, and uninteresting, and The Star Spangled Banner? What? Didn't Hendrix already do this? It should've been left in the history books. Removing the SSB and the second Higher Power would've cleared way for a couple more late-period songs that deserved it.
This collection serves as a fine introduction to Boston.

This is a fantastic collection of songs representing the storied recording career of BOSTON. Mastermind Tom Scholz delivers the goods in a big way. The songs have been remastered and tweaked so the sound quality is superb. If you already own the previous Greatest Hits package, get this one too because it offers a different selection of songs as well as a new booklet with never before seen pictures as part of a tribute to Brad Delp and as a retrospective of BOSTON. Having heard the remastered versions of the debut and Don't Look Back, I was delighted by how much better "Amanda" and other songs from Third Stage, Walk On, and Corporate America sound. Tom is working on a new BOSTON cd and I can't wait to hear it. When he has time, I hope that we get a remastered version of Third Stage, Walk On, and Corporate America as well. I know, I'm asking for a lot.... but it would be great. Too bad I can't give this one 10 stars..... and a guitar spaceship too!

If you're looking for good old bread and butter American rock, stick with the likes of Styx or REO, not the over-porduced Boston. Ever notice how Boston NEVER released a live album? Because they are NOT capable of pulling these songs off live. Tom Sholtz is a smart man in the studio but it's obvious he could never pull these off live and maybe that's why all the talented members left the band over the years. Buy the first CD and you'll have the only "Greatest Hits" you need.

Boston-Greatest Hits(1997). Boston's First Compilation.
Boston, between 1976 and 1986, was arguably one of the most popular rock bands around, with Boston, Don't Look Back, and Third Stage all breaking waves on the Billboard Charts, solidifying their place in Rock N Roll history. On a regular basis, Boston's songs can be heard on the radio, and tracks like "More Than A Feeling","Dont Look Back","Peace Of Mind", and "Foreplay/Long Time" are recognizable to almost anybody, and were huge hits back in the Late 70's-Early 80's, so it's only fitting that a compilation was released. So How does Boston-Greatest Hits Stack Up? Read On To Find Out...
PROS-
-CONTAINS ALL OF BOSTON'S BIGGEST HITS- When you get Boston- Greatest Hits, you can expect such huge Boston hits as "More Than A Feeling","Dont Look Back","Peace Of Mind","Foreplay/Long Time", "Amanda", "Smokin'", "Rock N Roll Band", and "Feelin' Satisfied".
-MANY GREAT NON-HITS ARE HERE- "Cool The Engines", "Livin' For You", "Party", and "A Man I'll Never Be" are all Very Good songs that weren't hits, yet were included.
- CONTAINS SONGS FROM ALL OF BOSTON'S ALBUMS- With Boston's Greatest Hits, you get songs from Boston, Don't Look Back, Third Stage, Walk On, and Corporate America(It has a remix of "Livin' For You"), so Boston's Greatest Hits provides a career spanning retrospective perfect for those who don't want the albums.

if you're just a casual fan of Boston, you might want to just stick with their first album, "Boston". As one reviewer has already pointed out, Boston wasn't exactly a "hit machine". There is a reason for that and it's not due to "writer's block". Tom Scholz was (is) a victim of his own perfectionism. He just can't "sign-off" on an album until it meets his demanding standards. It's those standards that (at least partly) have kept Boston from cranking out album after album. But, to the discriminating listener, that's not all bad because the professional crafting of Boston albums set the bar for the industry.
Now, to this album. Not a greatest hits album in the truest sense because not all of the band's best are here such as, "Hitch a Ride" and "Let Me Take You Home Tonight". To include those two songs, however, would give the listener a duplicate copy of the first album (minus one song). Probably not a good way to try and sell new albums. New songs, "Tell Me" and "Higher Power" are very good and the addition of "The Star Spangled Banner/4th of July Reprise" is a nice touch. The other selections "More Than a Feeling", "Foreplay/Long Time", "Amanda", "Rock & Roll Band", etc., are well-known Boston standards that won't disappoint.
As Boston followers have found out, it's tough to be a fan of an under-achieving, perfectionist band. They always leave you wanting more. That's still the case with Boston and their "Greatest Hits" album. But, as those same fans have found out, what Boston does ... they do well! They certainly have stayed true to form with this album.
