This album features Blue Öyster Cult's live recordings from September 18, 1981, at Madison Square Garden in New York. With the release of "Fire of Unknown Origin" in 1981, it seemed as though the band was embarking on a new commercial and stylistic phase, notably with the popular radio hit "Burnin' for You." However, despite the initial success, this would mark the last tour for the classic Bloom-Dharma-Lanier-Al Bouchard-Joe Bouchard lineup. The recordings showcase the band's live prowess, particularly evident during their hometown performance in New York. Alongside newer tracks like "Burnin’ for You" and "Joan Crawford," the setlist includes classics such as "Godzilla," "Hot Rails to Hell," and "Don’t Fear the Reaper," along with covers of Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild” and the Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues.”
