Blue Öyster Cult - 'Cherry' (official lyric video)

Whoa Whoa

Sittin’ in the corner graceful as the Virgin Mary
You’re a halo in a smokey room
Halo in a smokey room
Glowing smokey bedroom room
Whoa Whoa

I can be your author you can be my sanctuary
Why don’t you gaze into my eyes a while
Gaze into my eyes a while
Give me a Lolita smile
Ever since the dawn of creation
And ever since the dawn of time
This way it’s always been
With it’s own reason and rhyme
Ever since the dawn of creation
And ever since the dawn of time
The Man has got to have the Woman
Where’s the crime, where’s the crime, where’s the crime?
Well, I’m no Margaret Mead
But I’ve got a bead on your cultural need
Oh Cherry, oh Cherry
You need a lover not a backseat steed

Sittin’ on a pillow
Singing like a crazed canary
Promise that your love is true
Promise that your love is true
That may only mean a month or two

Blue Öyster Cult - 'Ghost Stories'
Για το ποιόν των Blue Öyster Cult και την επίδρασή τους στο ευρύτερο φάσμα της rock μουσικής δεν νομίζω ότι χρειάζεται να μακρηγορήσω. Η Αμερικάνικη μπάντα σχηματίσθηκε το μακρινό 1967 και παραμένει ενεργή μέχρι τις ημέρες μας έχοντας κυκλοφορήσει δεκαπέντε στουντιακούς "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (ορισμένοι εκ των οποίων... υπερκλασικοί).

Τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2022 οι Blue Öyster Cult γιόρτασαν τα πενήντα χρόνια δισκογραφίας (το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους κυκλοφόρησε το 1972) με τρεις εμφανίσεις στον συναυλιακό χώρο Sony Hall, στην Νέα Υόρκη.

Οι συναυλίες τους ηχογραφήθηκαν και φιλμογραφήθηκαν αποτελώντας το περιεχόμενο του live album "50th Anniversary Live - First Night", το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε στα τελειώματα του περασμένου έτους μέσω της Frontiers Music srl.

"Ghost Stories" τιτλοφορείται το νέο τους δισκογραφικό πόνημα, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε μόλι χθες, με το δελτίο τύπου να μας δίνει τις λεπτομέρειες:

«After the resounding success of their 50th Anniversary celebration, Blue Öyster Cult is eagerly gearing up for an exciting new chapter in their storied career with the upcoming release of 'Ghost Stories'. This highly anticipated album marks a fitting finale to the recording legacy of one of rock’s most iconic fixtures from the past 50 years.

In a thrilling partnership with Frontiers Music, Blue Öyster Cult is set to captivate fans with a collection of reimagined and newly completed songs that span from 1978-2016.

These musical treasures, long considered 'lost gems' by Blue Öyster Cult enthusiasts, were originally recorded between 1978 and 1983, except for one track from 2016, "If I Fell." Also included is the only known studio recording of their concert classic “Kick Out the Jams” (MC5 cover).

Some of the material is from sessions workshopping material for an album, some is from performance rehearsals. All were recorded once in the hopes that someday they'd see the light of day.

George Geranios, the band's original audio engineer and an integral part of the band's golden years, co-produced the original 1978-83 recordings along with BÖC. All were originally recorded on reel-to-reel analog tape.

They were later transferred to digital audio, which is when modern AI and magical musical talents met and the collection of vintage multi-track recordings was de-mixed, re-mixed, and produced by Steve Schenck and Richie Castellano to become 'Ghost Stories'.

Work in the studio for the album was completed by Richie Castellano along with remaining original members Eric Bloom and Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, both Albert Bouchard and Rick Downey appear on drums with additional overdubs recorded by Joe Bouchard. All these original lineup members appearing on 'Ghost Stories,' create a musical journey that traverses decades.

To celebrate this exciting announcement, the band shares the single "So Supernatural" along with a new music video that has a super cool blend of classic rock and modern AI.

As Blue Öyster Cult embraces its 'classic rock' phenomenon status, the anticipation for this album is reaching a crescendo. Fans are eager to experience the culmination of the band's artistic vision and witness the completion of songs that have become part of their folklore.

With a legacy spanning over five decades, Blue Öyster Cult continues to be a formidable force in the classic rock scene. The exciting partnership with Frontiers Music Srl and the visionary leadership of Serafino Perugino add an extra layer of anticipation to the release of 'Ghost Stories'.

As the band bookends their recording career, they do so with a flourish, offering fans a musical odyssey that is sure to leave a lasting imprint on rock history. Truly, a remarkable journey.»
