Orion the Hunter is the first (and, thus far, only) recording from the band Orion the Hunter, which was an offshoot of the band Boston (guitarist Barry Goudreau and vocalist Brad Delp -who sang backing vocals here- were also in Boston, and guitarist/vocalist Fran Cosmo would be in a later incarnation of that band). The group also included Michael DeRosier (from the group Heart on drums & percussion). The album was released in 1984 and charted at number 57. It featured the single "So You Ran", which was a rock radio top 10 hit; it also charted on the Billboard Hot 100. A very good AOR record that any self-respecting fan of the genre should own.
"Until Your Love Comes Back Around" hit Top 30 in February of 1992, and helped forge a new identity for ex-Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau as well as perpetual Boston member, vocalist Brad Delp. Definitely '80s rock, the opening track, "Face the Music," could have worked on a latter day Starship album as well. On paper this looked like a huge act.
Mike Goudreau & The Boppin Band present their 6th release "Sweet Blues". This album features a dynamic mix of Swing, Rock, Soul, Gospel and Jazzy Blues that they have become well known for with accolades from their peers as well as blues media and aficionados! 12 brand new original songs, all written and sung by guitarist Mike Goudreau who's accompanied by an all star band featuring the stellar horns of tenor saxophonist Dany Roy and trumpet player and arranger Maxime St-Pierre.
The arena rock band behind one of the fastest-selling debut albums in history, Boston was essentially the vehicle of guitarist and studio wizard Tom Scholz, born March 10, 1947 in Toledo, Ohio. A rock fan throughout his teen years, he began writing songs while earning a master's degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology…
Boston is the debut studio album by American rock band Boston. The album's style, often referred to as the "Boston sound", was developed through Scholz's love of classical music, melodic hooks and guitar-heavy rock groups such as the Kinks and the Yardbirds. The album was released by Epic in August 1976 and sold extremely well, breaking sales records and becoming one of the best-selling debut albums of all time. Boston's style was appropriated by label executives and imitated by bands to create radio-friendly "corporate rock", the creation of which the band was also accused.
