AllMusic Review by

Previously issued as three different volumes of live recordings put to tape at the Boston Tea Party nightclub over a string of dates in early 1970, Boston offers a definitive and crisply mastered version of the entire series, capturing the Peter Green-fronted, pre-Buckingham Nicks version of Fleetwood Mac at one of their smokiest, bluesiest high points. The 30 tracks here often jam past the seven-minute mark, with two different versions of the heavy boogie number "Rattlesnake Shake" each lasting more than 20 minutes. The playing volleys between electric, fiery blues-rock and laid-back, shuffling 12-bar blues workouts like "The Sun Is Shining."
