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!

...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! 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

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

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.

Nadie duda la importancia histórica de este disco, que supera en intensidad a lo que estaba haciendo por entonces Hendrix o Cream (estos ultimos en vivo supongo, ya que Disraeli Gears no es el mejor punto de comparación). Viene entonces el tema de quién inventó el hard rock y muchos citan a Vincebus Eruptum como el punto de partida. Respecto a eso me parece muy arriesgado darle crédito a un sólo grupo como inventor de un género, pero es cierto, antes de Iron Butterfly, MC5, Stooges o Led Zeppelin ya Blue Cheer estaba haciendo lo que se conoce como heavy, no eran los únicos ni los mejores pero si los más salvajes, usando mucha distorsión, no mucha técnica, potente batería y pesado bajo, voz estridente, etc.
Dejando claro este punto y concentrándose exclusivamente en la música, temas como Doctor Please y en especial Second Time Around son verdaderos monumentos del sonido heavy de fines de los 60's y que inspirarían a cientos de otras bandas. Lejos de ser virtuosos, Blue Cheer era pura energía y a diferencia de sus competidores no hay espacio aquí para inventos sicodélicos o aventuras similares, lo importante es destrozar la melodía y hacerla ruido (Summertime Blues es el perfecto ejemplo). Vincebus Eruptum es media hora de eso, dejando muy claro que para traspasar fronteras no hay que ser genios sino simplemente hacer todo lo posible dentro de los cada vez menos claros límites musicales de esa extraordinaria época de cambios.

OK, I first bought this album, well, a long, long, long time ago when I got hooked on the band's version of Summertime Blues. At first listen I was a bit overwhelmed by how much noise these three guys could generate and it took some getting used to before I realized that this was a GREAT album. Yeah, if you're an oldie like me, pick it up for nostalgia's sake for "Summertime Blues" (though I like The Who's version of the Eddie Cochran anthem even more...). But give the rest of this a listen. There's a sonic explosion that gives a hint of the punk movement that would take off more than half a decade later. MC5 gets a lot of credit for helping make the mold for punk. Sadly, Vincebus Eruptum has been overlooked by those who write rock history, because it, too, provided a sonic wall of noise that presaged punk. Oh, yes, do you like bass? If so, crank this up and blow the windows out of your house (or vehicle!). This is a great late-60s album that's still quite listenable today. Sadly, Blue Cheer (named for a type of, well, LSD) never equalled the success of this album and subsequent efforts were less vibrant and more unfocused. But hey, we have this. PLAY IT LOUD!
