Blue Oyster Cult released their first live album “On Your Feet or on Your Knees” on Feb 27, 1975. Each of the band’s first three studio albums is represented by three songs each, two other songs are covers (“I Ain’t Got You”, albeit with modified lyrics, and “Born to Be Wild”), and one (“Buck’s Boogie”) is an original instrumental that remains a staple of the band’s live shows to this day. The 12 songs include performances at the Academy of Music in New York City, the Paramount Theatre in Portland, the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, the Show Palace in Phoenix, the Long Beach Arena, the P.N.E. Coliseum in Vancouver and the Capitol Theatre in New Jersey, though it is not clear which songs came from which venues and on what dates.
It hit No. 22 on the Billboard 200, making it the band’s highest charting album in the U.S.
Happy 43rd Birthday to “On Your Feet or on Your Knees”!!!!!!!
