(December 25, 2016): Blue Cheer – I’m The Light

K-SHE Classic. From the 1971 album, Oh! Pleasent Hope. The epitome of a 1960s hard sweetmeatrock / heavy metal band – and one of the first – forever known for its cover of the Beach Boys’ “Summertime Blues.” By 1971, only early member Dickie Peterson was in the lineup, with Norman Mayell, Ralph Kellogg and Gary Yoder making up the rest of the band. Today’s tune comes from the sixth and last album before the band called it quits for over a decade.  A decidedly more mellow affair, with Mayell on sitar and Kellogg on synths.
