Boston Third Stage 12" vinyl LP

Album Summary:  Gatefold cover
Music Genre:  American Rock Music
Description / Collector's info: 

Third Stage is the third album by hard rock band Boston released September 23, 1986 on MCA Records. The album was recorded at Tom Scholz' Hideaway Studio over a six-year period "between floods andpower failures".

The album was a first, in many respects: the first Boston LP to feature electronic drum samples, the first to feature songs not written by either Scholz or Delp and the first Boston LP without Barry Goudreau, Sib Hashian and Fran Sheehan. However, original drummer Jim Masdea (who played on the demos that made a bulk of the first Boston album) plays drums on most of the album. This LP was also the first Boston recording to use the Scholz-invented Rockman guitar processor.
