Into the street (CD)
Boulevard is considered as one of the most important arena rock bands in the history of Canadian music. Their two classic albums - the self-titled "Blvd" and "Into The Street" - brought a fantastic mixture of 80's pop and rock, similar to what bands such as Toto, Mr. Mister and Glass Tiger had to offer. Sadly, their career ended with the birth of the grunge movement, which pretty much dominated the entire rock scene in the 1990's... The band's story began around 1983, when Mark Holden (saxophone/vocals) started working at the Thunderhead recording studios in Calgary, Alberta.

"Blvd" was recorded with producer Pierre 'Baz' Bazinet at Ocean Sound studios and mixed by legendary rock producers Bob Rock (known from working with Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, The Cult) and Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Dio, Joe Satriani, Poison). The LP spawned four singles and two videos, and got a bunch of very promising opinions from the critics. With a majestic combination of old-school riffage with clear, crisp vocals and the overwhelming saxophone and keyboard sound, the group managed to gather a loyal following and soon toured all over Canada supporting Glass Tiger. Before releasing their second album, the band extended their name to Boulevard and experienced some line-up changes, with Thom Christiansen (formerly of Idle Eyes) replacing Bugess on bass and Randall Stoll replacing Adolphe on drums. The group recorded "Into The Streets" at Venture Studios in Vancouver and eventually released it through MCA in 1990. Two singles were released in Canada, where the group was most successful. Unfortunately, Boulevard's music did not survive the confrontation with the wave of grunge bands coming from the US. In 199
