Blue Cheer - Motive
This is a German compilation of tracks from the first two Blue Cheer LP's Vincebus Eruptum and Outsideinside. I never had the individual LP's just this really weird compilation. They are another example of a band that just sounds truly incredible, colourful thick and fuzzy and a nice almost innocent sunny energy. I discovered them through Mudhoney and after hearing Blue Cheer it totally made sense how they arrived at the sound that they did.
