Magnificent noise on this one. I read about this band courtesy of Lester Bangs who slated them for being a poor man's Hendrix soundalike. Guess I'm a bad judge of what makes a great sound coz I really like this album. Rock Me Baby is my fave track. For the simple reason it's just great blues noise not trying to be anything else.
Granted this album won't appeal to everyone becoz it does contain a load of screechy feedback noise and amps cranked beyond the proverbial eleven to create a shocking soundscape, but since the bass player died I'll never get the opportunity to see them live so I will never hear the world's first heavy metal band in flight at full, ear-splitting volume. As such this piece of plastic will have to suffice. I have since bought this album on vinyl becoz that is how it should be heard. Checked out some footage of them on Utube too, and they sound like they are the loudest blues band ever. Awesome if u dig that kinda thing right? U don't? Stick to Michael Booblay or Justin Bebo then.

Blue Cheer was slang term for some of the alternative medicines available back in the day... this album certainly is a welcome alternative to the artificial garbage we are subjected to by the likes of Herr Cowell.
