"... one of this year's blockbuster albums ..."
- The New York Times

The reception to Boston's Third Stage in 1986 shattered all expectations: the band hadn't released any new material in eight years and nobody had any idea if fans would still be interested in Boston or its 1970s brand of arena rock. Interested turned out to be an understatement as Third Stage rocketed to number one on the Billboard album chart and stayed there for four weeks. It sold four million copies in the US in less than six months following its release and yielded the band's first and only number one single, Amanda. Third Stage also holds the distinction of being the first-ever compact disc certified gold for US sales of 500,000 copies.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth and dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its original creation. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
