On Your Feet Or On Your Knees, Blue Oyster Cult's first live album (there would be two more), was also its first to peak inside the Top 40 best-sellers, which is more of an indication of the audience the group was building up through extensive touring than of its quality. Songs that had a tight, concentrated impact on studio albums got elongated here, and that impact was dissipated. And the song selection left a great deal to be desired if this were to be a fitting summation of the band's career so far. Perhaps by its 1974 tour, BOC had dropped such classics from its first album as "Transmaniacon MC," "I'm on the Lamb but I Ain't No Sheep," and "Stairway to the Stars," but the less impressive material from the third album was no substitute. (The album did mark the first commercial release of a version of "Buck's Boogie" as well as covers of The Yardbirds' "I Ain't Got You" and Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild.") ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

This is Blue Oyster Cult's first live album which was released in'75 after just three studio albums. A double record set when it first came out, it fits into a single CD (barely) which is good. Good because paying for two CD's of this is not recommended. At the time of its release, BOC was a notorious, hard rocking band whose first two albums had very strange if not oblique artwork and the third of which was not viewed in any positive form by some members of the Jewish community (especially the JDL). The problem I have with this one is that it does not reflect the group that BOC was back in those pre "Reaper" days. Part of the problem, most of it actually, has to do with the song selection. To lead off this album with "The Subhuman" is inexcusable. One of my least favorite songs (from their third lp), it is a slow song (for BOC) and not what I wanted to hear kick off a live album. I always thought that "The Red and the Black" would have been a better choice. It's included here but doesn't start off the album and the beginning is abridged from the studio version. There are several other songs on here that should not be like "Maserati GT", "Before the Kiss, A Redcap" and Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild". I'll allow "Buck's Boogie" as its shows of Lead Guitarist Buck Dharma's skill (once a Jimmy Page Favorite). The guys in BOC are very skilled musicians and there is no letdown here on that level. It is what was included and what was not included that is annoying me. Where is "Astronomy", "O'd on Life itself", "Wings wetted down", "Cagey Cretins" and "Baby Ice Dog"? Cut and paste guys (although this live album smacks of a record company idea). Some of these songs appear on later live albums though. BOC is in the process of remastering (with bonus tracks), their catalog. So far, of their first seven releases, six have been reissued. Which one was not? I will just say this: "Don't stand on your feet or kneel on your knees. Just sit and wonder what could have been". Only for hardcore BOC fans. Great value though.
