Comment at hotrails.co.uk: “1974 was a significant year for Blue Oyster Cult, marking as it did the appearance of what many people consider… to be the band’s most significant record, Secret Treaties…”
Thanks to djscomics for sharing the lossless tracks at Dime site. Above all, thanks to Dan Lampinski, Carl Morstadt (who mastered the tracks), Kev and the rest of team Lampinski. And also to ShaReeF for keeping the show alive at HungerCity.
A note on Dan Lampinski: Dan recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers.
