Blue Oyster Cult / The Complete Columbia Albums Collection

Blue Oyster Cult / Complete Columbia Albums Collection

16 CDs and one DVD make up this box set collection

Sony Music are releasing a Blue Oyster Cult box set on 4 February next year. Eleven of the American rock band’s studio albums are included in The Complete Columbia Albums Collection (ending with 1988’s Imginos), alongside three live releases, a live DVD and two bonus CDs of rarities and live radio performances.

Many of the discs retain the bonus tracks from previous releases and the set also includes newly mastered versions of On Your Feet or on Your KneesFire of Unknown OriginThe Revölution by NightMirrorsCultösaurus ErectusExtraterrestrial LiveClub Ninja and Imaginos.

There is also a download card for four live concert broadcasts (early problems with this code have been resolved). Liner notes are by guitarist/writer Lenny Kaye.

Although it’s been available in North America and Canada for a few weeks, anyone interested in this set would do well to put in an early pre-order with Amazon in the UK since the prize at the time of writing is less than £55.00 which is very competitive.

    I bought this some months ago but cannot download the live concerts. The website http://www.bocdownloads.com does not appear to exist. I have tried to contact Columbia and Sony for advice but have been totally ignored. Can anybody assist?
