MOJO – April 2010 Issue
THE VINYL COUNTDOWN #1
BLUE CHEER: VINCEBUS ERUPTUM (Mono Edition)
“Just as the German King Tiger outgunned the allied Sherman in World War II, so California’s Blue Cheer out-louded their peers with their 1968 debut. These super-dence blues rock tunes owe Hendrix a debt and are prone to powering off Blues Magoos-style, but come in their own special engine oil and LSD marinade (see the surprise Top 20 cover of Summertime Blues). A long-spurned, now essential stop-off on the cakewalk to stoner-rock nirvana. The reissue comes with an embossed sleeve and a poem from Owsley Stanley.”

RIP, our friend, Lee Freeman. Lee, 60, rhythm guitarist for the Strawberry Alarm Clock, died of cancer Feb. 14 at his home in the Bay Area.
Freeman was an original member of the band, originally called Thee Sixpence when it was formed in 1966. Throughout the late 60′s, the SAC made consistently-great albums and singles for the UNI label. The group also supplied music for-and appeared in-the incredible A.I.P. film “Psych-Out”. Freeman, born Nov. 8, 1949, in Burbank, continued to play with the band during recent reunions.
