I’ve got the Summertime Blues!

I've got the Summertime Blues!

When the wind chill in Wisconsin hits 30 to 40 below, I always turn to music for a quick warm-up.  Here’s a great example, Blue Cheer and “Summertime Blues”.  Climbing to #14 on the Hot 100 in 1968, the song was Blue Cheer’s only hit, despite the song being the song most experts credit with being the first heavy metal song.  Today the song is another forgotten oldie, despite it’s unique warming qualities.
