5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT REMASTER, but don't expect a MIRACLE! 4 Feb 2012
By M. McKay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let's face it, this is as good as this album is going to get! Blue Cheer was a muddy band; they looked muddy, they sounded muddy, they recorded muddy, and any remaster of their first two albums is going to be just that....MUDDY. You can improve it, but you can't escape it. That's what's down on the tape kiddies and that's that. I seriously doubt Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab could do a better job. With that being said, this is the best CD re-issue of Blue Cheer's second album "Outsideinside." The sound is improved as much as it can be, which isn't much. It's a DEFINITE step up from the 2003 two-fer that was issued in the U.K., where it appears that a different master was used. I trust Bob Irwin knew what could and couldn't be done when remastering Blue Cheer and I'm sure he did all he could do. The sound is a bit clearer and more "open." It sounded awesome when I cranked the volume up (which is how you're supposed to listen to this band ya know). I always knew I loved "Gypsy Ball" but it's one of the murkiest tracks on the original LP. I could finally FOCUS in on the track with this remaster. All in all I'm satisfied with this and the packaging is great. It's the best "Outsideinside" has ever looked (aside from the original tri-fold cover in 1968) and it's the best it's ever sounded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distorto Biker Punks Amped Up Mind Destruction Program 28 Jun 2012
By B. Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This review is from: Outsideinside (Audio CD)
In the summer of 1968, as a youth not yet grown (apoligies to George RR Martin) i exceeded, on a daily basis, the limitations of my late father's lovingly built stereo system blasting the first Blue Cheer record... in retrospect, either my folks had unbeleivable confidence in my ability to work my way through baneful influences in life or they had just decided to ignore the signs that there could be storm clouds ahead for their son (whose hair was getting longer than they might have prefered)... at the time i sure wasn't worrying about how Mom might have been interpreting the lyrics to BC's version of "Rock Me Baby"... My musical interests up to this had been a Monkies album, Sgt Pepper, Surrealistic Pillow, etc... the usual suspects for that era... all that was fine and certainly i was groovin' on "Within You, Without You" and "Omaha".... but, truely, when i heard Blue Cheer's take on psychedelic music it was like the heavens opened up and testosterone-fueled sludge rained down to inspire my still forming youthful inclinations. This was a whole new approach to mind expansion, what with the lyrics focused on decidedly ungroovy topics...B.J's, prison time, addiction, etc... I LOVED IT!!! a few months later I'm flipping through the album section at the local Penny's store and low and behold... yikes, the most wacked out album cover I've ever seen!! Dickie Peterson sittin' on a mushroom looking decidedly ungloomy!! Whaley and Stephens also looking uplifted...miniature biker road crew guys scurrying to supply Dickie's THC requirements.... Wheeee.... I KNEW WHAT ALL THAT WAS ABOUT!!! I either shoved that disc under my beat up army surplus jacket or actually paid the $3.50 or so and high tailed it home... from the first piano/guitar psycho noodlings to last thumputeethump of Paul Whaley's drums at the end of "Babylon" i was reborn into the twisted, high volume vision of BC!! This record sounds like the mics the engineers used were clogged with grass and dirt... was Eddie Kramer doing lawn work on the side to supplement his income!!?? Perfectly not perfect. Flawed in all the right ways. A bloody mess, indeed. In 1977 i lived briefly (wasn't everything brief in those days?) with a one armed guitar player (he won the Gong Show just prior to moving into our L.A. cockroach infested apartment!!) who claimed to have attended high school with either some or all of the members of BC and was wont to say, "those guys got a band together cuz they were so horrible that no one would play with them!!" well, horrible or otherwise is in the ear of the behearor but in the wake of 40 years of technically adeptness and the overtaking of music by dry and flattening studiocraft, this music still screams "MADE BY CRAZED HOODLUMS WHO KNOW NO BOUNDS ON THE INGESTION OF GLUE, BANANA PEELS, THE COTTON FROM BENZEDRINE INHALERS and WHO, DESPITE THEIR INABILITY TO FIND THE STAGE AT THE AVALON BALLROOM DUE TO THE CRAWLING GEOMETRIC PATTERNS (NO MATTER EYES CLOSED OR OPEN) WILL NAIL YOU TO THE WALL WITH A HAIL OF AGGRESSION AND FEEDBACK!!" probably, at some point in my musical snail trail of the past 4 decades i may have lost the faith and briefly decided, along with my one armed friend that BC was moronic, inept, etc... but that was mere posing to appear sophisticated on my part and since i've grown into a intelligent, sensitive, knowledgable 57 year old and come back to the fold... BLUE CHEER DUSTS EVERYONE!! BUY THIS WONDERFUL SUNDAZED REISSUE AND THE VINCEBUS ERUPTUM REISSUE (glorious mono!!) AND YOU TOO CAN BE NOT ONLY MOLDED INTO A BETTER PERSON BUT PRIVY TO THE ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE HIDDEN WITHIN EVERY FEEDBACK DRENCHED BLEET AND BLAST FROM THE WALL OF MARSHALL AMPS OF THE MIGHTY BLUE CHEER CIRCA 1968- we'll never hear anything like them again. more's the pity.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSIDE INSIDE.... This is the REAL DEAL folks. 4 Aug 2012
By Everett Sandoval - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My aunt gave this for Christmas in 1970.

She asked my mom what kinda music of I liked. My mom said something to the effect of "the weirder, the better"
I guess the cover attracted my aunt to get me OUTSIDEINSIDE.

Thank You Aunt Carol.

OUTSIDEINSIDE has been one of my absolute favorite albums EVER,
I love everything about it.
It's one of the few albums that just keep me coming back.

It's raw and LOUD.
Its' Blue Cheer at their peak.

HIGHLY Recommended.
Get this and crank up the volume.
You'll see (and hear) what I'm talking about.

BTW: The SUNDAZED re-issue really does OUTSIDEINSIDE justice.
Worth picking up.

10 10 10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nobody Like 'Em 22 Mar 2007
By Tim Shullberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow, Blue Cheer. Long before Deep Purple took the Guiness record for loudest band alive, this three-man power trio was knocking the plaster from the ceilings of older theatres across this great land. But not just loud, GOOD. This is what hard-rock has always been about. Paul Whaley, the drummer of the band, is still, to this listener's ears, one of the all-time greats. His sound was so full and his attack without peer. Stories had it that he played while wearing gloves and he still came away blistered and bloodied on occasion. All I know is this release is one of the vinyl albums that I moved to CA from NY and I still find myself humming parts of Feathers From Your Tree. Wanna know what it was all about? Buy this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Got Satisfaction 31 Aug 2012
By Sebastian Gerber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Besides the main, great original material on 'Outsideinside' I found the cover of 'The Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" on this album, to be the best cover of the song I've heard; it is full of wild abandon and genuine passion, that not only does the Stone's number justice, but makes it Blue Cheer's own, particularly when the famous riff is flipped to minor key towards the end, making an individual and bold musical interpretation, at a time when such twists were fairly new and innovative, but still keep their resonance today.
As for the rest of the album: passionate, charismatic, hard rocking and stimulating tunes full of energy and charismatic power; brilliant, but not over-indulgent, guitar and soloing from Leigh Stephens; tremendous drumming (Paul Whaley), with very nice little fills and bass (Dickie Peterson, also on vocals), that is huge, but versatile and merges very subtly into the mix.
There's heavy rock here, but also delicate moments; psychedelic overtones; solid compositions; groovy riffs and juicy songs and singing that make this an important record that, thanks to the great reviews here, lead me to an easily overlooked and brilliant classic...Great packaging (cardboard, but thankfully with a plastic jewel tray for the actual CD) and the latest, greatest, superior remaster (the lo-fi recording is part of it's charm, I think).
Highly recommended.
