Blue Cheer 'Rock Me Baby'

In 1968 Blue Cheer divided opinion quite strongly between those who got annoyed at their full-blooded proto-metal pollution of the blues during the height of hippiedom and those who saw it as a welcome relief and arguably a punkish precursor to bands like the Stooges several years down the line. This is one of the more straight up and organised tracks off the album (which all kicks by the way) but still maintains the ham-fisted garage aesthetic that Blue Cheer are known for.
