EDITORS’ NOTES

Gifted guitarist/producer Tom Scholz and singer Brad Delp couldn’t have imagined the success of their 1976 debut when they recorded it in a Boston basement. It’s packed with heavy, guitar-driven peaks, gentle passages, and glacier-sized choruses—from party-starter anthem “Smokin’,” to the ode to nostalgia “More Than a Feeling,” to the everyman ballad “Let Me Take You Home Tonight.” “Rock & Roll Band” is an autobiographical tale of bar-band adversities and “Foreplay/Long Time” kicks up from murky jazz-prog to pure, sing-along power pop. It’s an album for the ages.

I think this is the greatest album of all time. The 3 best songs are More than a feeling, Peace of mind, and Long time.

Possibly one of the best albums ever

Every single song on here is great! Brad Delp's vocals are amazing and Tom Scholz on the guitar is fantastic! This album is essential to anyone who likes classic rock! My favorite song is probably 'Peace of Mind.'
