"Don't Look Back" is the second studio album by Boston, released in 1978. The title track is one of the band's biggest hits, reaching #4 in 1978 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album sold over 4 million copies in the first month of its release, and has been certified 7x Platinum by the RIAA in the U.S. The original title was supposed to be "Arrival", but Boston members discovered that ABBA already had an album by that name, so "Don't Look Back" was chosen instead.

The album was remastered and re-released on June 13, 2006. The re-releases were digitally remastered personally by Scholz. A small number of Sony-remastered versions briefly went on sale in Canada on April 4, 2006 before being yanked from the shelves. Those discs also included a live version of "Shattered Images" (titled "Help Me" on the packaging in error), an unreleased Boston original, from a 1976 concert in Philadelphia.

"Don't Look Back" was among the first commercially produced compact discs when the format was introduced in 1983 but because of legal issues, the title was pulled after a small production run and did not re-appear on CD until three years later. Inserts for the original CD pressings contained the "spaceship blueprints" from the original album; those illustrations were not included in the 1986 re-release.
