The Byrds' 1967 album, Younger Than Yesterday, finds David Crosby, Chris Hillman and Roger McGuinn developing as talented, eclectic songwriters. It mixes folk, psychedelic rock and country, as in "So You Wanna Be A Rock Star" and "Renaissance Fair."
The second BÖC album pioneers a new style of fierce, lush speed-metal. The LP side A was identified as The Black, and it rocks at a blistering pace, while on side B, The Red, the tempos slow down and bluesy, theatrical impulses infuse the music.
The first live album from Blue Öyster Cult, On Your Feet Or On Your Knees, captures all the excitement of a live BÖC concert, with soaring guitar solos and passionate vocals on standout songs such as "7 Screaming Diz-Busters" and "Buck's Boogie".Temporarily out of stock

The self-titled first album by Blue Öyster Cult came out in 1972 and it established the band's persona as of dark, complex, heavy rock. Songs include the anthem "Cities On Flame With Rock & Roll" a droll declaration of the group's rebellious stance.
