This Legacy edition expands the original audio release to the 73 minute double-album length it was once planned to be and also includes a second disc, Some Other Enchanted Evening, a semi-bootleg DVD of concert footage shot on the same 1978 tour.

4.0 out of 5 stars R U Ready To Rock? Hell, Yeah! February 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
From the second the new, remastered disc of SEE began to spin in my player, I could tell the sound quality was head and shoulders above the previously issued budget-priced disc released by Columbia; without having to crank the volume, my home office transformed into arena level sound and I was transported back to the late 70s and Blue Oyster Cult in their prime. SOME ENCHANTED EVENING always seemed like an afterthought compared to the band's first live set, the killer ON YOUR FEET OR ON YOUR KNEES, but now that the disc has been enlarged to almost full concert length (c'mon, 73 minutes is NOT a full BOC concert!), it finally makes a great companion piece. KNEES was Stage One, encompassing those first three groundbreaking albums and captured the Cult at a live frenzy; EVENING captured them at the height of their post AGENTS OF FORTUNE fame and glory. And finally, after years of listening to muddy bootlegs, we get to relive the excitement of "Five Guitars" as the Oyster boys storm the stage with Joe Bouchard pounding his bass as brother Albert jumps his drum kit to join the wrecking crew, guitar in hand. While the drum solo became a cliche in the 70s, few bands had a player good enough to enthrall us with a bass solo (and for the record, I consider the Bouchard brothers the greatest rhythm section in hard rock; Albert, a multi-instrumentalist, seemingly has never been given his due as a drummer -- for my money he's up there with Moon and Bonham as a drummer's drummer, and Joe comes close to matching the late, great Entwhistle as a "thunderfingers" to be reckoned with). This disc is now a great showcase for all members of BOC, a fact that is sadly not reflected by the concert DVD.

The DVD is the reason I can't give SEE a full five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage BOC February 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a great package and a treat for BOC fans. Not only do we get the album restored to it's original length but also video footage of a different show when BOC were probably at the peak of their career. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because of one thing: why are "Don't Fear The Reaper" and "Godzilla" missing from the DVD? They're both on the CD, and even though the DVD is supposedly from a different show on the same tour, you know they did those two songs, so why would their two biggest songs not be in the video? For that matter, why isn't the DVD a full length show (it's only an hour)? Obviously they shot the whole show, why leave any of it off? Other than that minor gripe, I'm very satisfied and happy to see this come out. If there's more in the vaults, keep it coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good re-release but perfectionists look elsewhere April 2, 2007
By JP
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must say that I don't understand some of the criticism of this DVD!!! I think it deserves at least 4 stars simply because of the era in which it was recorded/filmed. Not only is it far superior to the "Live in 1976" BOC DVD, I can easily think of a dozen DVDs from the late 1990s to today that don't sound or look as good as this one. So, you obsessives used to modern releases need to get over yourselves when it comes to the limited quality of much of the stuff from the 60s, 70s and even early 80s and appreciate it for what it is. Remember, not every band had Led Zep's or the Stone's recording budgets!!

As for the new version Of "Some Enchanted Evening"....where to begin!!! I was quite excited to hear of its release not only because it's one of my favorite BOC albums; I was at the Fox Theater show in Atlanta that two of the songs were recorded at. So, naturally, I was curious as to where the bonus tracks were recorded, but, even more importantly - where the DVD was filmed!!!

And, therein begins the problem!! First, I think someone wasn't paying close attention to the original record because only 2 songs on the original are from Atlanta; "R.U. Ready 2 Rock" and "Kick Out the Jams" - "E.T.I." and "Astronomy" are actually from a show in Columbus, GA, 2 nights earlier.

But, according to the new booklet, all 4 are from the Atlanta show!! Oh well, I could make some joke about Yankees thinking Atlanta IS all of GA, but I think this is a simple oversight on someone's part. One thing I DO know is that they are the EXACT SAME recording of "Astronomy", good `ole Buck Dharma never plays the exact same solo twice, I don't think he can!! So either the original release, or this new one, is wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Nice Hot Atlanta Night 1979 July 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was happily in the third row when this was recorded. This was one of the last shows before the government made BOC stop using the extensive laser show (which some said would hurt the poor kiddies eyes). I wish the selection was a little more representative of the whole show but they were great anyway. I saw them four times during the late 70's and next to their show at the Omni with Ian Hunter(save for a drunk who was working out some homosexual angst, not realizing that Ian is straight in spite of "all the Young Dudes"), they were never better. This is a great album, but for first timers, I'd suggest ON YOUR FEET OR ON YOUR KNEES which has the blitzkreig version of ME 262. Still, even without the lasers, this shows one of the late '70's better live bands at their peak...
