Extraterrestrial Live is the American hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult's third live album, released in 1982. It documents their 1981 tour in support of Fire of Unknown Origin, but includes two tracks recorded in 1980, during the Black and Blue tour with Black Sabbath. Midway through the tour of 1981, the band fired drummer and founding member Albert Bouchard, replacing him with roadie Rick Downey. This was the band's third live album in less than a decade. The solo on Veteran of the Psychic Wars is widely regarded by fans and critics as one of Buck Dharma's best.
Of Blue Öyster Cult's three live albums, Extraterrestrial Live is the one to own. The two-record set, partially recorded on BÖC's home base of Long Island, contains the band's biggest hits, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" (making its second live appearance) and "Burnin' for You," as well as longtime concert favorites like "Cities on Flame," "The Red and the Black," and "Godzilla." But it isn't just the superior song selection that gives this album the nod over On Your Feet or on Your Knees and Some Enchanted Evening; BÖC had regained its momentum in 1981 with Fire of Unknown Origin, and this album demonstrated their renewed spirit in the forum in which they were most comfortable -- live work. --AllMusic Review by William Ruhlmann
