CD Reviews

The Fudge rocked!

"I've been a fan of the Fudge for decades now. They were an amazing psychedelic cover band and this album is a good overview of four of their early LPs.

My biggest disappointment, however, is that it contains the 45 single edit of "You Keep Me Hanging On", which edits the 1st half of the 2nd verse to the 2nd half of the 3rd verse, screwing up the lyrics terribly. Why this edit was ever made in the first place is a mystery to me, and why it has been perpetuated onto this collection is a mystery as well: the full-length track could have easily fit onto this CD."

"I listened to Vanilla Fudge throughout my teenage years so I eagerly bought this CD. I almost threw it out the window during the first track. Their classic "You Keep Me Hangin'On" is edited (butchered) to the point that the verses don't even rhyme. When they did that to a classic cut I couldn't enjoy any of the other tracks. If you're a Vanilla Fudge fan forget this compilation and buy the original album versions."

"I remember seeing the Fudge on Ed Sullivan performing YKMHO and SHOTGUN and it blew my mind (to a teenaged guy, loud and heavy was reason enough alone). However, these guys were far better than Blue Cheer or Iron Butterfly - more in the range of early Deep Purple (who - inspired by the fudge, began to also perform "slowed down" versions of other people's songs - "Help" comes to mind). I read in the great book "Strange Brew" that when the Fudge played London, everyone, including the Beatles, Beck and Clapton were in the audience. In fact, Bogart and Appice went on to form the great power trio BBA with the Beckster himself!! Sure, Vanilla Fudge was over the top. But, can you honestly say that Sgt. Pepper wasn't? If you like your music heavy, the Fudge are great. Overdriven B3 organ, fuzzed out 335 and a monster drum kit. Tim Bogert, with his vintage precision was one of the best heavy bass players of his generation, right up there with Felix Papallardi and Jack Bruce. This collection includes pretty well everything you would want from them. Unfortunately their original albums were a bit pretentious (one disc attempting to cover the history of western music - from Beethoven to Glenn Miller and on). You can also forget the rumors that this band was somehow a creation of mafia bosses. Who cares? Shotgun really rocks and You Keep Me Hangin' On is, to my ears, as creative and cool as the original. Vanilla Fudge were obviously influenced by Long Island bands like the Rascals and particularly the Vagrants (who also did a R&B cover - Respect). I would have loved to have seen the Fudge during their prime in NYC!! Check out this CD. Musically these guys are at the top of their game. ONE MAJOR PROBLEM, however. Most of these cuts are edited versions. I prefer the longer, complete performances. But for that, you must purchase the original alboms on CD. However, for a collection, you will NEVER find a heavier dose of in your face psychedelic hard rock music. VOLUME ON TEN, PHASERS ON STUN, PREPARE FOR WARP SPEED SCOTTY!!"
