Blue Oyster Cult- Agents of Fortune
The only B.O.C. album I own on vinyl so far. But I would like to pick up Fires of Unknown Origin ( I really dig "Burnin' For You) and Spectres (Godzilla).
I bought this record after seeing them this summer at the R.O.T Rally. I went with a buddy of mine that's a huge Blue Oyster Cult fan and it was definitely a really good show. Plus, soon after, I found this record for .99 cents. And it plays well! Woo-hoo!
Yes, this is the record with Don't Fear The Reaper and yes that song rules. It's one of my favorites to play on Rock Band. Especially since I'm always the vocalist and this song is easy as shit to sing.
One thing I'm noticing listening to this record is I much prefer Buck Dharma's lead vocals over Eric Bloom's. Does that make me a poseur B.O.C. fan for saying that? "E.T.I." is a really cool song though. I also think it's kind of funny that Patti Smith is the guest vocalist on "The Revenge of Vera Gemini".
