More videos from Pete Pardo of the Sea of Tranquility website. This time he looks at American hard rock band, Blue Oyster Cult.
This is a band who produced an excellent live album early in their career called On Your Feet or On Your Knees. They followed it up with two more very good live albums after their commercial breakthrough with Some Enchanted Evening and Extraterrestrial Live.
Over to Pete.

Extraterrestrial Live is the third live album released by hard rock group Blue Oyster Cult and is from the Fire of Unknown Origin tour in 1981.
Their first live album, On Your Feet Or On Your Knees is a must-have classic if you’re a fan of hard rock and heavy metal. The second is a big seller but I prefer this one album to Some Enchanted Evening, even in its extended format.

Some Enchanted Evening is the second live album released by American hard rock group Blue Oyster Cult. It was recorded on the tour to promote Spectres in 1977/1978.
The first live album was On Your Feet Or On Your Knees which captured the group in 1974 but thanks to the success of the hit single Don’t Fear The Reaper and its album Agents Of Fortune, Blue Oyster Cult were a much better known group several years later.
Originally it was a single album but in 2007, Some Enchanted Evening was reissued with seven extra songs.
