Blue Cheer were formed in San Francisco in 1967. They had a hit with Summertime Blues which reached #11 in the charts in 1968 but the group never quite achieved national fame. After their first two LPs of raw power rock the personnel and musical style changed. They recorded four more LPs for Philips before splitting up for the first time in 1972. They briefly reformed in the 1975 and again in 1984. The latter reformation led to the release of new studio and live recordings. Further occasional recordings have followed. The current line-up of the band is based in Germany.
