Agents of Fortune is the fourth studio album by American hard rock band Blue Öyster Cult, originally released by Columbia Records on May 21, 1976. The Platinum-selling album peaked at No. 29 on the .

Released May 21, 1976. Agents of Fortune Tracklist. 1. This Ain’t the Summer of Love Lyrics. 2. True Confessions Lyrics. Agents of Fortune Q&A. What have the artists said about the album? Eric Bloom talked about the album in an interview for Music Radar: We were getting more successful, which allowed everybody to go out and get four-track machines. Buck is a very good engineer, and he wrote (Don’t Fear) The Reaper at home, made a very good demo and came in with it.

The irony was that while the cut itself came down firmly on the hard rock side of the fence, most of the rest of the album didn't. Agents of Fortune was co-produced by longtime Cult record boss Sandy Pearlman, Murray Krugman, and newcomer David Lucas, and in addition, the band's lyric writing was being done internally with help from poet-cum-rocker Patti Smith (who also sings on "The Revenge of Vera Gemini").
