Boston - Third Stage
My First CD purchase back in 1990 $18.99 at Tape World.
Why did i choose this as my first CD, this is one of my all time favorite albums, musically and sonically. Bought it on tape when it first came out in 1986 and just wore it out. Just a great album, i know it's not for everyone, but it does it for me. If i had to choose 10 albums to keep and throw the rest out this one would be on my list.
Here is a great review on the album, and if you have a chance have a listen. "overlooked masterpiece"
"It took nearly six years to conceive and complete this album. No orchestral instruments or synthesizers were used to create the sounds. Each individual piece of music relates to a human experience. And together they tell the story of a journey into life's Third Stage."
