BLUE CHEER – Blitzkrieg Over Nüremberg [Live in Germany 1988]

Blitzkrieg Front

Look folks, I don’t dig heavy metal no way, no no [except Motorhead when I’m in a “Killer” mode] but BLUE CHEER proto-metal is my weakness. Their first two ’68 slabs are hard rock/garage-psych jewels standing shoulder to shoulder with MC5 & Stooges power stuff. This here is pretty fine live ’88 recordings with new line-up: Duck MacDonald lead guitar/vocals, Dave Salce on drums and only original member Dickie Peterson on bass guitar & vocals. They ”surf” through some Blue Cheer’s classic stuff as Just A Little Bit, Out Of Focus, Babylon, Doctor Please & Summertime Blues and couple of solid 80’s tunes. There are some great guitar fireworks worthy of an Leigh Stephens. Say… Blitz!
