Albert Bouchard is best known as one of the founding members of Blue Öyster Cult. The original band sold millions of albums with classic songs, “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” and the #1 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart “Burning For You.” As a songwriter, he wrote many BÖC songs including the very popular ”Astronomy” which was covered by Metallica on their 1998’s release Garage Inc and the live staple “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll”, which he also sang lead vocals. Albert’s famous cowbell on “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” was the basis of the popular SNL skit with Will Ferrell and Christopher Walken, which has garnered over 13 million views and spawned the iconic phrase, “More Cowbell.”

“This vinyl release brings the vision for ‘Imaginos’ full circle, where the songs come out as a gatefold double vinyl release with each side telling a specific part of the story. It also sounds the way that Sandy and I wanted it to sound with plenty for volume and yet, plenty of headroom too. The extended mixes take advantage of the multitude of guitar tracks that I had available and also add some extra drama to some songs (as if it was really needed). Finally, it has the long-lost version of ‘Imaginos Overture’ that was planned for the original ‘Imaginos’ record, with more contributions from Joe Bouchard, Greg Holt, RJ Ronquillo, Ross The Boss Friedman, and Ace Bouchard...” - Albert Bouchard
