One of my early posts, BOC has always been one of my faves, at lest those incredible first three albums,
served up here as supreme vinyl rips.....I have also included a slew of EARLY BOC boots, demos, etc, some Soft White Underbelly, lots of killer shit (I think they began to suck after "Secret Treaties" myself, although, they did give us an occasional "Don't Fear the Reaper" or "Burning For You".......but if you missed this goldmine the first time (2011?) don't be a dumbass and miss it again, this is MUST HAVE/MUST HEAR shit, and if you are a BOC fan, it is 100000% essential. Period! I am not fucking around here.....
Let's start out with the first three classic albums.....if you do not own them, please tell me why? BOC were not about that "Godzilla" nonsense, after all......take the amazing debut with the great ballad "Then Came the Last Days Of May" (four buddies set out to make a fortune in the dope biz, one makes his by wasting the other three....."They say the west is nice this time of year, it's what they say").....brrrrrr just amazing, and that isn't even counting "Before the Kiss, a Redcap" or "Cities on Flame With Rock n Roll".......
Album #2 is better if anything....."Tyranny and Mutation" includes the most amazing track transitions ever recorded, "Seven Screaming Diz-Busters"......."OD'd On Life Itself".....if you don't own this WHY? and here is a fine vinyl rip as well......NO excuses!
OK, other great stuff: Starting off with Soft White Underbelly, a pre-BOC version of BOC......fab shit just to be aware of......and after that, TONS of remixes, demos, live takes......hell look at the track lists below.....BOC was one of the world's best rock bands for a minute or two there......so appreciate them!
