Blue Cheer 's massive contribution to the early evolution of American heavy metal exists entirely on their first two releases, Vincebus Eruptum and Outsideinside. While those initial releases charted admirably, critics largely ignored the band's loud, bluesy, psychedelic-tinged hard rock. The touchy-feely summer of love lasted a lot longer than three months and building heavy metal momentum in the States was a difficult affair. There resulted some lineup shifts, minor stylistic Parchment Farm - Blue Cheer - The History Of Blue Cheer: Good Times Are So Hard To Find , brief creative flourishes, more lineup changes, solo projects, half Glassy - Various - Urban Asian, and reunion retreads.
Some decent songs were recorded during that long descent and fortunately many of them were picked to grace the track list of Good Times Are So Hard to Find. Chief among them is the title cut and "Pilot" from 's Original Human Being. Other tracks from the group's eponymous release and 's Oh! Pleasant Hope have a boogie-down and MOR feel respectively that, while competent, contains hardly any of the group's original fire.
