I would say yes and no to that. I saw Boston in 1987 and 1995 and let me tell you they were amazing! They were tight and firing on all cylinders. That's not something you see from just a "studio unit".

On the other hand there is no mistaken that Tom Sholtz is the man in charge. The guy is a genious on many levels and areas and you can't take that away from him. He is an engineer, inventor and hell of a songwriter and musician. If he wants to take 7 years between CD's he's earned the right.

As far as Brad Delp goes the only reason he wasn't on the last studio release is because his voice is shot in the high end range. Actually Brad Delp was on tour with them in 1995 along with Fran Cosmo. Delp sang the lower parts and Cosmo sang the high parts on the classic Boston material with Delp playing 3rd guitar and singing backups on the newer material Cosmo sang. Very tight unit! An interesting side note is that it was actually Barry Goudreau who discovered Cosmo and gave him his start both on his solo release and in Orion The Hunter. Delp has worked with Goudreau on both his solo release and the 2 RTZ CD's.
