Links To Peel
Peel mentioned buying an import debut LP of Boston from a French lady, whilst shopping in Marble Arch, London, on his 03 September 1976 show.
Boston's second album didn't enthuse Peel very much, admitting on his 17 August 1978 show that he was very enthusiastic about their debut LP when it was issued a couple of years ago, but substantially less enthusiastic about the second one. Nonetheless Peel played some tracks from the LP thinking that listeners might be interested in hearing them.
By the 80's and beyond, Peel seemed to have lost interest in the band and rarely played any tracks from them.
