Very Nice!! I have a soft spot for this one. Blue Oyster Cult was my first concert, sometime in late 76 or early 77. This song had just been released about 6 months prior. An awesome experience, although my ears rang for 2 days after the show as I was quite near the stacks up front. Really nice arrangement!

Man -- what a time to be going to see live music for the first time. I've heard their live shows were on another level!

Great! My acoustic duo does it, but we sing. It gets a good response.

That's really nice. But it needs more cowbell.

Boy do I remember this song! It works great as a solo guitar piece. And that mahogany Martin sounds terrific. Nice work!
