Blue Oyster Cult Blue Oyster Cult on Limited Edition 180g LP

After a name change to Blue Öyster Cult (derived from a poem by manager Sandy Pearlman), the band recorded a demo of their own material which Sandy took to Columbia Records producer Murray Krugman. Being on the same cosmological plane as Pearlman, Murray took to the band immediately. Three weeks later, the Cult were signed to an exclusive Columbia Records contract, and their first album, 1972's Blue Öyster Cult, hit the racks.

For good reason, the Cult's first album turned out to be one of the most acclaimed debut albums in recent memory. The sound of BÖC was shattering, sinister and very distinctive. Lead guitarist Don (Buck Dharma) Roeser almost immediately established himself as one of he '70s first superstar guitarists. His style - lightning fast with all the subtlety of a dentist's drill - punctuated the Cult's unearthly lyrics with icy precision. Likewise, Eric Bloom branded the band with his menacing voice which could easily breathe terror into an Ogden Nash limerick.

The Village Voice called the Blue Oyster Cult album, "the tightest and most musical hard rock record since – dare I say it – Who's Next" and its home to such fan favorites and concert staples as "Cities On Flame With Rock And Roll," "Stairway to the Stars" and "Then Came the Last Days of May."
