That photo above and the song below, "Come and Get It," are pretty much the whole package. It's a whopper. In other words, I don't really know shit about Blue Cheer, and that's okay. They've been on the back burner for a long, long time. Back when I first became cognizant of their version of "Summertime Blues," I already knew Eddie Cochran's and the Who's. There simply wasn't enough room in the "Summertime Blues" part of my brain for three versions, so being that there were two hard rock versions of roughly the same vintage, one of them had to get back behind the rope and wait. Blue Cheer is still waiting. They'll get in at some point. In the meantime, I still let them in periodically to use the head.
