White Summer's self-titled LP, a private pressing from 1976, reissued with original artwork for the first time. Progressive hard rock with psychedelic touches, melodic vocals, top-level musicianship, and stunning lead guitar. Originally from Benton Harbor, Michigan, White Summer was formed in 1973 by a trio of 18-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 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 to feature original artwork. 24-bit domain professional remaster from a mint original vinyl copy (master tapes were lost). Includes insert with liner notes by original member James Watkins and a previously unseen photo. "This is the best band I have ever seen in a bar!" --Eric Clapton. "This is the longest I ever sat and listened to a band." --Neil Young

Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
