Wednesday's One Cup of Java Challenge

Wednesday's One Cup of Java Challenge: Fifty years ago today, Eddie Cochran released "Summertime Blues," a tune that would become one of the biggest hits of his too-short musical career. Eddie's version hit #8 on the charts. Three other artists have also charted with versions of the song; two of those versions landed in the pop Top 40. Your challenge this morning: name those bands, one of whom hit #14 in '68, the other #27 in '70.

Answer: Blue Cheer and The Who. Country star Alan Jackson hit the #1 spot on the Billboard country charts with his version in 1994.
