Don Law, writing in the magazine Boston After Dark, deplores the recent Bosstown Sound music business hype, saying, 'What it has done, in all likelihood, is serious damage to the city and to its pop-music groups. If nothing in the way of lasting value is promptly forthcoming from Boston, the audience will lose interest, and consequently the promotional value of being from Boston will be lost. Even worse, being from Boston may start to evoke an "Oh, another one of those!" response from the record-buying public, and hence the recording-company executive. If this happens, being from Boston will be a stigma rather than an asset.'
