CD Reviews

Classic Metal record
Undertaker | 07/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Vanilla Fudge's best album, and their last. Fudge was a very important band in heavy rock in the late sixties. They had a sound similer to Grand Funk Railroad with more Hammond organ worked in. Influenced Deep Purple and every heavy group who followed."
Rot & Roll

(3 out of 5 stars)

"ROCK & ROLL was ORIGINALLY a typical Vanilla Fudge album. Their extended length covers ("Windmills Of Your Mind" and "If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody") had representation, as did painful introspection ("I Can't Make It Alone" and "Church Bells Of St. Martin's"). There were also heavy rockers ("Street Walking Woman" and "Need Love") and spirituality ("Lord In The Country").

The original LP of ROCK & ROLL was a fine way for the band to bow out. This CD release however, is quite flawed, due to tampering. The "original mix" of both "Windmills..." and "...Woman" are simply awful-- particularly the latter. The snap and fire of this song is just not there. Sometimes a band has REAL reasons to choose later takes for their albums.

Finally-- the bonus track ("Break Song") really doesn't belong on this set. For these reasons, rate the Vanilla Fudge's farewell album/reconstituted CD 3½ stars, and try to find the original record or cassette tape."
