FLEETWOOD MAC'S LEGENDARY THREE-NIGHT PERFORMANCE AT THE BOSTON TEA PARTY RELEASED AS MID-PRICE 3CD SET

Boston is a 3CD set which collects live recordings from an earlier era of the band's colourful history. The set features the classic blues line-up of Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, John McVie and Jeremy Spencer.

Originally recorded at the Boston Tea Party venue over three nights in February 1970, for a planned release later the same year, these recordings were left in the can, unissued, following leader Peter Green’s sudden decision to leave the band a few weeks after the dates.  Tracks from the shows were eventually released in various forms in the mid-80s but these releases were blighted by poor sound sources. The discovery of the original 8-track tapes and a number of previously unreleased tracks in the late 90s allowed the material to be re-mixed, re-mastered, and substantially overhauled for release on 3 separate CD volumes.

 

This box set brings together all of these re-mastered recordings as a 3CD set to present a complete document of these historic shows. Presented in an 8-panel digipak packaging complete with a 20-page booklet. The booklet contains new sleevenotes and reworked artwork.
