This Blue Cheer album from 1970, here reissued on LP, is a solid release with a good variety of styles. Of the band's original musicians, founding member Dickie Peterson was the only one left on this album. There is a real surprise at the end of Side 1 that's perhaps an overlooked gem. 'Babaji (Twilight Raga)' is an instrumental and highly psychedelic San Francisco-flavoured rock piece, complete with sitar injected throughout. This was a group peaking regardless of the unsettling nature that the changing of the guard brought on with every album. There's quite some blues going on and horns are used in an effective way, and surely they influenced many more rock oriented groups to combine brass with their sound. Comes with a pasted hardboard sleeve.
