On the song “I´m the light”,features the use of Sitar and synth,inusual on other albums by Blue Cheer.
While “Money troubles” and “Ecological Blues” are more oriented blues rock tunes,and “Traveling man” features country,other songs like,“Hiway man”,“Believer”,“Lester the arrester” and “Heart full of soul”,are in Southern rock,style .
Great guitar and vocal,Gary Lee Yoder,features previous an LP on the KAK band in 1969,a great psychedelic collector lp.
I can do recordings to be transfered in digital source
the most rare original pressings,are hard-to-find albums than often sound far superior to any reissues.Instead to pay an audio engineer,new labels use a quick mastering process than loose dynamics and destructive audio,to save money.
I have submitted masters to record labels and released digitizations with quite good dynamics.
If you have a piece of vintage audio that you would like digitized,please contact me.
A vinyl rip
