The original title was supposed to be "Arrival", but Boston members discovered that ABBA already had an album by that name, so "Don't Look Back" was chosen instead. The album was remastered and re-released on June 13, 2006.

Don't look back (ooh, a new day is breakin') It's been too long since I felt this way I don't mind (ooh, where I get taken) The road is callin', today is the day. I can see, it took so long just to realize I'm much too strong not to compromise Now I see what I am is holding me down I'll turn it around, oh, yes, I will. I finally see the dawn arrivin' I see beyond the road I'm drivin' Ooh, far away and left behind, left behind. Oh, the sun is shinin' and I'm on that road.

Ships from and sold by Imagine -This- Music. It's been said by many that Boston and Don't Look Back are meant to be listened to as a pair, and it's easy to believe with their short run times. This is a proper remaster, you can have absolutely no fear. If you're still listening to the original CDs, you can feel confident to replace them with these. If you're like me and have been listening to these albums occasionally for decades, you might find yourself realizing something

Don't Look Back (Boston song). Don't Look Back" is a song written by Tom Scholz that was first released by Boston in 1978 as the title track to their second album, Don't Look Back. It reached on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of the band's biggest hits. Although the first song on the album, "Don't Look Back" was its final song to be written and recorded. I didn't even record a demo for that song.

Don't Look Back" is just another great rock and roll album to enjoy just like their debut album. From the rock and roll of "Don't Look Back" to the ballad "A Man I'll Never Be", Boston once again put out another great album and that any rock fan should enjoy. Pros: + More great rock and roll + A great ballad (A Man I'll Never Be) + Lyrics.
