And what a deal this is for either a fan of rock music wanting a good starting point with this exceptional band or for an existing BOC fan who wants to fill a gap or two in their collection.
At first glance the 3 albums seem to be random choices but you actually get the two book end studio albums of the output from the original, classic line up (between 1972-81) complete with a live retrospective collection from 1982.
Both the studio albums are solid 5 Star fare and the double live (with the absence of Albert it can't quite match the stellar levels of On Your Feet or Some Enchanted Evening) has plenty of highlights as well.

For many years BOC's debut album "Blue Oyster Cult" had perplexed me - just where does a "first" album of this variety, class, assurance, musicianship and "unique sound" come from?? - It's not as iconic, trendsetting or important as debuts from The Doors, Zep or Sabs but musically it in no way suffers by comparison to any of them.
There are traces of Psychedelia, Blues and Folk Rock as well as the early development of American Heavy Metal all woven into a seamless fabric that stamped a distinctive and individual imprint that strongly stayed with the band for the next three years and would always be in their DNA for the next 30+ years.

Two classic BOC albums with a live though disappointing album included. Can't fault the two studio albums which include plenty of classic rock songs. Good price for three albums and it is worth having the live album just for completeness of your collection.

This is an odd mixing of CDs. One is the first BOC work ('72). Very peculiar with some of typical "early" BOC sound.
The other two CDs are from a much later stage of the band, the period that I like more.
ETL live is for me one of the best BOC CD and the best live album for sure.
The dark/mystic sound coming from Fire of Unknown Origin is just great.
Very good and cheap buy for BOC beginners!

Very good triple feature from an underated band 11 Oct. 2009
By DRG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first CD is remastered with bonus tracks. The other CD's are not remastered. All of them are good as is the sound quality. It's great to hear B.O.C. live.

The cover art is great and as one reviewer said, it would look great on a shirt.

The packaging is cardboard, so be careful when removing and inserting the discs.

Great value introductory CD to BOC, I ordered several more BOC cd's and found this band more than just the hit songs on the radio.
good stuff 17 April 2012

First I have t say this product arrived quickly (which pleased me), second It arrived in great condition, third it plays well. Now to review the music, BOC sounds as good as ever. The sound is crisp and clear and just as fresh as ever. If you looking for some good 70's sounds get some bBOC.

Weird combination, unremastered (dated) production 15 Jun. 2010
By Jim Richmond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While I can't complain about the music, it is worth noting that these do not have the updated / remastered sound, which brings out the full total spectrum of these recordings. You wont' get the high highs and low lows, just the muddy midrange that can disappoint.

I must also wonder why they picked two neighboring albums, and then one from a whole different period.

Get the individual remasters instead for full enjoyment!

B O C Sound as good today as they did in the 70s this 3 disc set is a great intro to them!
