Boston Leader Shocked by Remaster Reviews

BOSTON (Wireless Flash) -- Boston leader Tom Scholz wrote the hit, "Don't Look Back," but admits finding new pride in it when he started remastering the classic rock band's first two albums, "Boston" and "Don't Look Back."

In his words, "I kept hearing these guitar licks and hidden pieces that I hadn't heard in years and I thought, "Wow, I did that."

Scholz says the biggest surprise of the remastered discs has been the critical reaction. As he puts it, "I spent two weeks remastering these CDs and have gotten better reviews than for any album I spent six years working on. I should spend my time remastering."

That's exactly what he's doing. Scholz would like to take Boston out on tour next year but is currently working on a new studio album as well as remixing a CD of live recordings.
