About the Album
The Revölution by Night is the ninth studio album by American hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult, released in November 1983. The album was intended to capitalize on the success of Fire of Unknown Origin two years prior, hence the blend of straight-ahead rock and pop elements. This was the first BÖC album not to feature all of the band’s classic members, drummer Albert Bouchard having been fired during the previous tour and replaced by roadie Rick Downey.
Lead single “Shooting Shark”became a radio hit, and its accompanying video became one of MTV’s most requested clips upon its release. The lyrics to “Shooting Shark”were based on a poem by Patti Smith. The song “Take Me Away,”co-written by Eric Bloom and Canadian rock musician Aldo Nova, also received significant airplay on AOR. Nonetheless, the album failed to go Gold in the United States.
