    DNA is right.... As a sophomore in college I bought my first Boston LP at State Discount in East Lansing, MI. It had just come out. A hand-written note over the sales bin offered this optimism: "Better 'n Aerosmith".

    I'd love to hear a MFSL version!

    Recently I bought the DSL DL from Acoustic Sounds. Ostensibly from the OOP Sony SACD. It sounds better than any other copy I've heard. Hard to believe Tom Scholz recorded this, with Brad Delp, in his 1975 apartment basement!

    Well , he WAS (still is...too!) an MIT Graduate who worked in Polaroid and he recorded the main LP , except for the last song (and you can hear the difference), on a 12 track (correct me if I'm wrong) , which had a LOT of space in the tape for the signal...he also had done those songs several times before and was working comfortably IN HIS BASEMENT , not in a studio, where time is money... It really is a pity that he didn't do anything else with that setup cause the rest of the LPs don't sound nearly as good (Third Stage being the biggest offender, with the early Rockmans and fake drums...).
    And of course there was the VOICE, Mr, Brad Delp (RIP), who's do overdubd without even practicing them and they'd be perfect...what a voice!

    As it is, it decodes fairly well on DPL II..

    And I used to have the SACD...I thought it was BAD (cutoff at 22K-a MAJOR sin with this kind of sound), I even SOLD it!!!

    Nice background write up! At my age (61), 22 kHz is of no consequence. Wish it were! If I had a dog listening with me, maybe... ;-)

    I lived in the Boston area for a bit, and know a lady who was CTO of Polaroid back in the day. Quite a company...ahead of its time. I didn't know TS worked there.

    Thanks for the info,
    Steve
