Loved the Fudge. Mark Stein was one of the prime reasons I just HAD to get rid of my Farfisas and get a Hammond. He's the king of smears.

 

I wish I could find a vid somewhere of them doing Break Song.

Agree! My brother turned me onto them in the 60's, and I bought a Hammond... Ditched the Farfisa... Here is a cut from the same guys (minus Tim) taped last year...

They were cool at the time, though they would have been a heck of a lot more interesting if they had more than one arrangement for everything they played.

CApp records here, and still kills live.

Serious power drummer.

My Bassist is signed with them as he was his bassist in the '80s.

Funny thing is on the first LP the drums were done while he was out with UFO using a Control 24. Then everyone else sent in stems, and the Bassist went throught the SSL4000G+ and did the entire LP in 11 hours. Just in time for the gig that night....

Nice studio though, the best equipped I have seen in years.

I may still have a couple of shirts in the back of the closet with those monster sized collar lapels.

Sounds like he needs to zap that scanner.

I don't think so... What you are hearing is only the horn being miked at a close distance.... Remember, this was taped in a TV studio...

They were from Long Island, with two other bands coming out of there about the same time - Vagrants (Leslie West) and Young Rascals.

 

VF kind of sucked hind boobie to those other two bands as far as getting respect from the locals.

 

While VF helped start heavy metal, Rascals went the soul route.

The Rascals were great as well... But as far as energy and power are concerned, it's hard to beat the Fudge....

 

To hear how great they were live, check out "Box of Fudge". There is a complete live concert very well recorded circa 1969 on that double CD.

Back in the sixties, I thought Vanilla Fudge were meant for druggies after dropping acid and then chilling. :cop:

 

I thought the Rascals could be appreciated by straight people too, more musical. The Rascals had a lot more hit songs that got radio play. VF was more of an underground group, like most early metal/drug bands of the era.

 

 

 

Cheers!

Don't get me wrong. I absolutely adore the Rascals... What a great variety of music we had back then... Can you imagine the diversity in sound that these late 60's bands had? Not like today...

And on... And on.... And on...
