Blue Oyster Cult Announce 17-Disc ‘Columbia Albums Collection’ Box Set
Blue Oyster Cult will release a 17-disc box set entitled 'The Columbia Album Collections' through Sony Legacy on Oct. 30 in celebration of the 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.
This massive collection features the heavy psychedelic rock band's first 11 studio albums, from that 1972 debut all the way up to 1988's 'Imaginos,' along with three live albums, two audio discs of rarities, and a "mythic" live DVD from 1978. The box will also include a download code good for four live concert broadcasts and a forty page booklet with photos and detailed liner notes.
To promote the set, Blue Oyster Cult will perform a special show on Oct. 28 at New York City's Best Buy Theater. 100 deluxe VIP packages -- including a seat in the first five rows as well as an advance copy of the box set, an exclusive poster and a laminate -- will be available along with standard tickets on Friday, Aug. 17. You can get more information about the show on the band's official website.
