Blue Cheer - OutsideInside (1968 us, superb heavy fuzz psych rock, 2017 japan SHM remaster and 2012 edition)

Blue Cheer’s second album, Outsideinside, fully matches its predecessor’s primal power. The last Blue Cheer release to feature the beloved lineup of Stephens, Peterson and Whaley, Outsideinside is a bracing orgy of volume, distortion and aggression, with such highlights as “Just a Little Bit,” “Come and Get It,” the instrumental “Magnolia Caboose Babyfinger” and the band’s distinctive take on the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.”

Sundazed’s compact disc edition is sourced from the original Philips reels, complete with the unique original cover design and features a new essay by Doug Sheppard of Ugly Things magazine.

Blue Cheer looms large in the annals of hard rock, laying down the sonic foundations of heavy metal and serving as a crucial influence on the birth of punk, grunge and stoner rock. While the rest of the rock world was mellowing out and embracing the spirit of the Summer of Love, the seminal San Francisco power trio was churning out ballsy blues-rock anthems whose fuzz-heavy, adrenaline-charged intensity helped to alter the course of contemporary music.

  1. This is a monster,fulled with energy...

  2. Many thanks for this classic album.

  3. The birth of heavy metal ! Hard to believe that this music came out in 1968. Thanks for uploading this tremendous album.

  4. Did not find this album to have any replay value.Try "Vincebus Eruptum" by Blue Cheer

  5. Haha! To Rob Anderson, the asspiring music critic: It's comments like these that make life worth living! No replay value? Get yourself to a clinic & have your vital signs checked as well as your hearing.

  6. Mick seems to have issues with others' opinions. I disagree with Rob's assertion but my skin is not thin enough to think he's undermined my character.

  7. Sounds good, but this also replicates the fade-out on Satisfaction - not the original tape splice ending of the LP, with Dickie's laugh.

  8. Many thanks, it will be great to hear this SHM-CD pressing. :D

  9. Glad I have ears that work so that this album has plenty of "replay value."

  10. Truly a landmark band that along with their 1st release left an indelible mark on all hard rock to come. But not to be forgotten is that this is absolutely 1 of the finest sike album covers of all time.

  11. Hi Mario, too bad the links seem dead. Can you please help. Thanks in advance.

  12. 3-51M!(), "Blue Cheer - OutsideInside", fixed...
