  • Blue Oyster Cult's second live album (which was also the group's second platinum effort) was recorded during the 250-date tour for SPECTRES. Always one of the better '70s live draws, Blue Oyster Cult used SOME ENCHANTED EVENING to showcase some of the group's heartiest epics alongside some of its more well-known selections. Among the stellar songs included are the southern rock-flavored "R.U. Ready 2 Rock" and the mystical "Astronomy," a song that's wrapped in blankets of Allen Lanier's swirling synths. A crunching version of the hit "(Don't Fear) the Reaper" is only surpassed by the thunderous "Godzilla," a monster epic that is this band's "Smoke on the Water." An interesting pair of covers, "Kick Out the Jams" and "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," found the members of Blue Oyster Cult not only tipping their hats to the rebellious side of the British Invasion, but paying homage to the spirit of anarchy represented by the MC5.
