'68: Summertime Blues
Title: Summertime Blues
Product Type: VINYL LP
Before there was Black Sabbath, there was Blue Cheer's debut album Vincebus Eruptum in 1968. Some people will argue that Blue Cheer is the genesis of heavy metal and was only popularized by Black Sabbath, but that point remains contested. Vincebus Eruptum contained a cover of Eddie Cochran's 1958 song "Summertime Blues," though it was given a much heavier sound. Now '68, the duo fronted by ex-The Chariot frontman and guitar Josh Scogin, has released a deluxe version of their album Two Parts Viper, which also has a (heavier) cover of "Summertime Blues" on it. Here's what Scogin had to say about it.
1.1 Summertime Blues

2.1 One Thing, However, I Have Found to Be True
