Essential Listening: Vanilla Fudge – The Complete Atco Singles (CD)

The Complete Atco Singles (CD)

They are on the short list of the heaviest bands ever to hit the charts, which they did eight times. They are also quite possibly the greatest cover band of all time, with their version of the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On" easily among the most inventive covers ever recorded. And they are the missing link between psychedelia and heavy metal. They are Vanilla Fudge, and this 19-track collection is the first dedicated to their classic singles for the Atco label, all here in their (mostly mono) original single versions, over half of which have never been reissued.
