50th anniversary release -Extremely rare Blue Cheer set of very rare live songs
Blue Cheer played the legendary Underground Club in Cologne-Germany several times ... in all their different line-ups. Dickie Peterson has even made Cologne his new home when he relocated to Germany. This is also where he found his new love and his new home.This show on June 21, 1991 was amongst the first the band played with German guitar ace Dieter Saller, after Duck MacDonald was no longer in the band. Dieter Saller, called Deedee, brought a much heavier edge to Blue Cheer's music again, displaying the Blue Cheer roots as founders of the musical form Heavy Metal once again. The prince kissed the princess!This is a wild heavy raunchy set with some songs Blue Cheer had rarely played live, such as "Hunter of Love", "Hunter of Love", "Blue Steel Dues" or "Hoochie Coochie Man" and the old boogie down rocker "Pilot".Line-up: Dickie Peterson - bass, vocals; Paul Whaley - drums; Dieter "Deedee" Saller - guitars. Rock n Roll as Rock n Roll can!Maybe Blue Cheer were amongst the first, if not the first band to play and start the Underground club in 1988. The club shut down on September 15, 2017, almost exactly 50 years after Blue Cheer had started a new musical age with their version of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" in 1967. So this release is a double anniversary release and, at the same time, an epitaph for the one and only Dickie Peterson (r.i.p.) and one of the last great Rock n Roll clubs in Germany.
