I didn't try "Cultosaurus Erectus" or "Fire Of Unknown Origin"

but I probably should or could--it's just not a huge priority right now. (Yes Rich B I know "Black Blade" well.) I was doing BOC's full discography like I do other bands' but stopped after the near-worthless 80s dinosaur album Revolution By Night (B! O! C! You can be whatever you want to be!) and the hilarious lost-concept album Imaginos. I've been warned away from Mirrors and Spectres and everyone in the world sneers at Club Ninja (but "Dancin' In The Ruins" is such a hilarious turd that I'll always be curious!) and didn't even really like Tyranny And Mutation all that much and that's supposed to be a classic. That leaves Agents Of Fortune which is just okay despite having three of their very best songs (and two of their very worst--I'm looking at YOU "Tattoo Vampire" and "Sinful Love"!), Secret Treaties and the s/t debut album, those last two are fairly strong but not godlike. So yeah I could see BOC as an example--it doesn't help that what I've heard from those missing albums is all represented for me on the 2-disc comp Workshop of The Telescopes which I've had for a couple decades now. Some of that stuff I liked, but the fact that the two weak songs from Revolution By Night ("Take Me Away" and "Shooting Shark") were actually the best songs on THAT album didn't speak very well!!!
