An infobox was requested for the Blue Cheer version of "Summertime Blues" at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Missing_encyclopedic_articles/List_of_notable_songs/12. —Preceding unsigned comment added by InnocuousPseudonym (talkcontribs) 19:09, August 24, 2007 (UTC)

The Who and Blue Cheer[edit]

The Who recorded this song at least 2 times in 1967 before the Blue Cheer version was released in 1968. Member(s) of Blue Cheer modeled their version on the Who's performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. This is clearly backed up by recordings in the Monterey Pop Festival 4 CD box set and the remastered CD of Odds & Sods. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.229.24.95 (talk) 03:28, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

In the versions by the Who and by Blue Cheer, I did not hear the other lyrics.

"I called up my congressman, he said quote."

There was no "I'd like to help you son, but you're too young to vote.", just an instrumental part.


No, that lyric is definitely in The Who version, have you got the Live At Leeds version? oh, and what is the criteria for having a larger explanation of the cover version? I'd like to see an elaboration on The Flaming Lips version --66.203.178.173 21:29, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

Heaven and Hell[edit]

Why does the Who song "Heaven and Hell" redirect to this page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Happy quack (talkcontribs) 22:51, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

The Beach Boys also covered this song in 1962 on their first album, "Surfin' Safari" with David Marks on lead vocals. [1]

Analysis of song?[edit]

I think it would be worth a section on the story and the themes - teenage America in the 50's, and the resentment of male/paternal authority, as represented in the deep-bass passages. (Do we know who the artist was?) Valetude (talk) 17:21, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Angelina Jordan version[edit]
