This record is an opportunity to see the return of former drummers Albert Bouchard and Rick Downey, who were involved in the recording process. The disc thus mixes old recordings and more recently finalized parts.
Ghost Stories arrives three years after The Symbol Remains, a record which marked Blue Öyster Cult’s major studio return. The group then embarked on a tour which included two dates in Paris. More recently, the group released a live performance for their 50th anniversary, in which they played their first album in full.
