Exact repro reissue of the legendary cult band's sixth album, an overlooked, atypical gem originally released in 1971. This was the last album before the band's hiatus that would end with their return on 1983's The Beast Is Back. This album features Dickie Peterson's lead vocals on only three songs, reveals a blues/psych-tinged maturity in the more acoustic-centered tracks than what's found throughout the rest of their FM-radio saturated catalog, and includes "I'm The Light," a pop masterpiece blessed with the presence of synth and sitar sounds. Underrated but essential, Oh! Pleasant Hope finds Blue Cheer on a cosmic plane that remains criminally undiscovered by most.
