Numbered, limited edition Hybrid 4.0 Multi-Channel SACD

Blue Oyster Cult's mighty third album from 1974 features the classics "Career of Evil," "Dominance and Submission," "Astronomy" and more. Plus it includes five bonus tracks including their version of "Born to Be Wild.

While the speed-freak adrenaline heaviness and shrouded occult mystery of Tyranny and Mutation is the watermark for the band's creative invention, it is Secret Treaties that is widely and critically regarded as the band's classic.

The album spent 14 weeks in the U.S. album charts, Melody Maker rated it "Top Rock Album of All Time" in 1975 and in 2002 Rolling Stone magazine called it one of "The 50 Coolest Records of All Time"

At least four of the tracks from Secret Treaties are featured in every Blue Öyster Cult "best of" compilation ever released - that includes the mysterious lead-off track "Career of Evil" which was written by punk poetess Patti Smith, a longtime contributor to the band, the somewhat lyrically disturbing "Subhuman," the mischievous "Harvester of Eyes" and the exceptional epic closer "Astronomy."
