Product Description

Product Description

The Summer of Love and San Francisco produced a little something that likely shook the flowers from more than a few heads of hairBlue Cheer's pummeling debut was literally louder than anything that had come before it and it laid the foundation for the decades of "heavy" to come. "Summertime Blues; Doctor Please; Second Time Around; Parchment Farm" and the rest of this quintessential recording is back on CD in glorious MONO, sourced from the original reels! A must!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great album......DONT BUY IT!!!! Dec 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...A lot of people have called Blue Cheer the first heavy metal band and "vincebus Eruptum" the first heavy metal album ever made . And in a way they were . Blue Cheer had albums out before Led Zeppelin ( I dont care what anyone says Zeppelin wasnt heavy metal just some trashy blues band) and Black Sabbath . Now most reviewers have commented on how loud they were but that just doesnt describe the volume these guys played at ... If you were standing in the "cheap seats" or even out doors it still felt like you had your ear pressed up to one of the speaker cabinets (the volume and projection of the sound was that great)in fact the band's manager reported that at a pratice one day they received noise complaints from ten , yes TEN MILES AWAY! ...now I dont know if that was true , but wouldnt be surprised if it was .(what do you expect? I remember guitarist Leigh Stevens had ten Marshall stacks)
As for the album you should find something to like about it as it is one of the best that gets labeled as "acid rock" . But just why shouldnt you buy it? well the thing is that if you want to save money then you should take a look around amazon for the album "vincebus eruptum: outsideinside" . The album "vincebus eruptum: outsideinside" is a much better deal , because when you buy it you get this album and "outsideinside " on one disk ! and it also has a quicktime video of "summertime blues" on it

5.0 out of 5 stars No match! July 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Blue Cheer is unfortunately one of the most underestimated bands ever. People say SAbbath invented heavy. Forget it, Blue Cheer, where the first that ever did heavy metal. So much noise, so much talent. Their debut album Vincebus Eruptum, is so immense, with so many genius songs. My personal favorite is "Out Of Focus".
Leigh Stephens guitar sound is so high, and cool. Ive never heard anything like it.
And by the way, not only oldies listen to this music. im 16 right now, listened to them since i was 14

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Cheer Does Not Pre-date Black Sabbath!!! April 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't acutally own this disc, but Sabbath released Black Sabbath in 1968 - the same year I believe as Blue Cheer's first release. Blue Cheer is heavy, no doubt, and loud, but they lack the riffs that made Sabbath the prototype/original/founding Heavy Metal band. This is not a dig at Blue Cheer, but let's give credit were credit is due!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monsters, what else. Feb. 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Crank it up and watch the neighbors close the doors and shut the windows. Blue Cheer are the inovators of Metal, that is the fact and nothing else matters. Dickie Peterson was and still is the man with his southern drawl and screams that are un matchable. He is out in Germany right now playing his butt off and still sounding as loud and raw as ever with his new group. Leigh Stephens had to be one of the loudest players I ever heard and Paul Whaley on drums with a mountain of drums so big you could barely see him on stage. In 1969 I was at one of thier shows at the Whiskey A Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, and in the middle of the second song the management pulled the plug cause they were so Loud. Needless to say the place started to riot and there went all those lovely Marshall amps that Leigh had stacked. Dickie said after the show, ah Sh-t man this happens all the time!

5.0 out of 5 stars The OFFICIAL beginning of Heavy Metal Nov. 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Remember this band (back in my acid days) as the loudest, longest hair, ultimate heavy Marshall Amp cranking dudes I ever heard. The sound and the look evolved into heavy metal, but it pisses me off that all the rock history books give credit to Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin instead of these guys. I'm telling you, these guys started it. I don't follow the metal scene today (thrash metal/death metal/black metal) because I'm too old and I find Slipknot and Cannibal Corpse to be just a joke. How this loud distorted white noise of "Summertime Blues" and "Babylon" (unfortunately not included on this disc) evolved 30+ years later to Slipknot, Pig Destroyer and Cannibal Corpse is beyond me, but I guess it's like heroin. You gotta keep upping the dosage to get the same buzz until it finally kills you. I'm sure death metal and thrash metal is on its last legs, becoming like the dying vaudeville scene of the late 30s, with only fewer and fewer diehard fans. But I'll always remember the beginning, and the great sound of this band, Blue Cheer. To some kid with a nose ring who listens to Slayer, Mudvayne or Tool it's not going to mean much, but to old Sabbath, Judas Priest or Iron Maiden fans they might get it. Try it and hear some of the original riffs, man.

Before Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, there was this L.A. (where else?) trio, the purveyors of loud, sludgey metal that would rise at the beginning of the '70s. This debut LP from 1968, though severely underproduced but nonetheless intense, features a barrage of blues-based hard-rock-turned-psychedelic-fuzz-feedback-metal assault, including a cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," which would ultimately prove to be their signature song. Needless to say, very essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Origin of Stoner Rock
JUST LISTEN to Vincebus Eruptum!! These guys did it back in 1968 what bands like KYUSS did in the early 90s.....the source and inspiration of stoner rock if you will.
