Vanilla Fudge: "Vanilla Fudge"

This LP was Vanilla Fudge's eponymous debut.
Released in 1967, it consisted entirely of covers of songs previously recorded by other artists.
Vanilla Fudge's version of "You Keep Me Hangin' On" became the most popular version of that song ever recorded, but it was originally recorded by The Supremes in 1966, and it has been covered by innumerable artists since, including Kim Wilde's 1980s pop version and Reba McEntire's 1990s country version.

Vanilla Fudge was among the raft of bands creating "psychedelic rock" and is widely considered to be the primary link between that genre and what soon became known as "heavy metal."

I still totally love the music from this LP.

A fan in Pennsylvania scooped this one up.
