  • Recorded in 1974. Originally released on Columbia (32858). Includes liner notes by Lenny Kaye.
  • Digitally remastered by Vic Anesini (Sony Music, New York, New York).
  • While Blue Oyster Cult's third release, 1974's SECRET TREATIES, continued to expand the band's fervent following, it lacked the heavy metal intensity that made the band's sophomore release, TYRANNY AND MUTATION, so exceptional. While hard rock compositions abound on SECRET TREATIES, the vast space rock of the group's self-titled 1972 debut can be detected back in the mix, courtesy of mainstay BOC producers Murray Krugman and Sandy Pearlman. While the album didn't prove to be the Blue Oyster Cult's breakthrough success (AGENTS OF FORTUNE would do the trick two years later), SECRET TREATIES is held in high regard by longtime fans, and has subsequently reached gold certification.
  • The epic album closer, "Astronomy," would receive greater attention nearly 25 years after its initial release when Metallica covered it on the band's all-covers collection, GARAGE INC., in 1998, but other tracks are just as strong. "Career of Evil" was co-written by drummer Albert Bouchard and famous punk poet Patti Smith, and remains one of BOC's finest. Other standouts include the edgy rocker "Dominance and Submission," the synth-enhanced "Flaming Telepaths," and the vicious "ME 262." SECRET TREATIES was issued as a specially priced CD three-pack in 1995 along with BLUE OYSTER CULT and TYRANNY AND MUTATION.
