I've spent some time over the years digging through used bins, and of the two Blue Oyster Cult records that I need, I don't think that I've ever seen them in the wild. When I came across a copy of Tyranny And Mutation during a visit to one of the local used stores, I quickly pulled it from the rack. I wasn't happy about the bit of ringwear, or the barcode on the back cover indicating it was a later pressing, but fuck it, I just wanted this in my collection. I can always grab an original pressing down the road...because those original red and black, and inverted black and red b-side labels, are a pretty cool touch.
Damn, this album is so good. For 1972, this one is going to be right near the top of the list.
