White Summer – White Summer

It’s Saturday & time for our weird-saturday-bandcamp-findings!

Today we feature a reissue from 1976 of the Progressive hard-rock & psychedelic band White Summer – here is some more info taken from the Bandcamp page:
“Originally from Benton Harbor, Michigan, White Summer was formed in 1973 by a trio of eighteen-year-olds who shared a mutual love for Hendrix, Cream and Grand Funk among others. They were: Jim Watkins (drums and vocals), Rick Lowe (guitar and vocals) and David Wheeler (bass). White Summer played many shows at high school dances, outdoor festivals and nightclubs, becoming in the following years one of the top rock acts not only in Michigan but also in Florida, where they relocated at the end of the 70s.

White Summer’s first album, known as the “White Album” due to its simple design, was recorded at Uncle Dirty’s Sound Machine Studio in Kalamazoo, Michigan, by Bryce Roberson who had formerly been an engineer at Chess Records. Self-financed by the band, 1000 copies were pressed and sold in the Michigan area.

Sought-after by collectors worldwide, this is the first ever reissue featuring original artwork.”
