Added DiffLines:

* SinisterSouthwest: The track "Death Valley Nights," which is about the infamous desert, and the rock-operatic track "Golden Age Of Leather", about old Hell's Angels who decide the world no longer has a place for them and choose to die in a blaze of glory in the remote desert.

Added DiffLines:

* CoveredUp: Bonnie Tyler's cover version of "Goin' Thru The Motions'' got a lot further in the British charts than BÖC's original.


''Spectres'' is the fifth studio album by Music/BlueOysterCult, released in 1977. It's best remembered for the radio hits "Death Valley Nights", "R.U. Ready 2 Rock", "I Love the Night" and, of course, "Godzilla". It was preceded by ''Music/AgentsOfFortune'' and the next studio LP would be the critically disliked ''Mirrors''.

* CoverVersion: ''Goin'Thru The Motions'' was co-written by British singer Ian Hunter [[note]]Hunter's involvement is possibly the reason why the LP uses British English spelling '''Spectres''' and not ''Specters'', as you might have expected.[[/note]]. Hunter recorded a version with his band Mott The Hoople. The big British hit was a cover recorded by Music/BonnieTyler in the early 1980's. BOC's version was released as a single in Great Britain but barely charted.
