Artist: Boulevard, Album: Into The Street, Song: Lead Me On

Boulevard (aka BLVD) were a Calgary band that formed in the mid to late eighties by founders, Mark Holden, Randy Gould and American vocalist, David Forbes.  The band recorded briefly in Calgary before relocating to Vancouver and landing a record deal with MCA in 1987.  This paved the way for their debut album in 1988.  It was a strong album that produced three popular singles and landed the band opening gigs with Glass Tiger and Boston.  Following those tours, they would enter the studio once more, change their name from the abbreviation BLVD to Boulevard, and release their sophomore album, Into The Streets.  While the album didn't spawn as many hits as their debut, it did produce their highest charting song, Lead Me On.  You can hear the song on You Tube (  The band would break up shortly after this release.  You can purchase the album, Into The Streets, on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
