40 Years Ago: Blue Oyster Cult Release ‘Secret Treaties’ Read More: 40 Years Ago: Blue Oyster Cult Release ‘Secret Treaties’

I spent the night with Blue Oyster Cult once. It was a late summer night out at the Industrial Building at the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds. I’m not going to expound on the night. Let it be said it was rock and roll heaven. Now the band is offering fans some more incredible BOC music. “When Long Island’s New York’s Blue Oyster Cult released Secret Treaties in March of 1974 their future standings as bona fide hard rock legends was anything but guaranteed. But with their third release now on the charts. It was something to be amazed at. The band had to no longer look for their identity. Simply put Blue Oyster Cult was making sense out of not making sense. And that made sense. Rock and roll wise. “http://ultimateclassicrock.com/blue-oyster-cult-secret-treaties/

And so that night way back in 1973 is still embedded in my memory. Rock on BOC.

When Long Island, New York’s Blue Oyster Cult released ‘Secret Treaties’ in March of 1974, their future standing as bona fide hard rock legends was anything but guaranteed; but it certainly helped that the band’s third album (and final installment in their so-called “black and white” triptych) happened to be their best effort yet — by far.

For, whereas B.O.C.’s sophomore outing, ‘Tyranny and Mutation,’ had undoubtedly paid off, in part, on the tenuous promises made by the group’s eponymous debut, its inconsistent songwriting and sheer aesthetic schizophrenia clearly revealed the band’s lingering directional uncertainty.
