Psychedelic Soup: Who Loves Vanilla Fudge ?

Man, they had some great band names in the psychedelic 60's, Chocolate Watchband, Electric Prunes, Strwaberry Alarm Clock, Blue Magos, Bubble Puppies, but have you heard the Psychadelic wonder of Vanilla Fudge

Vanilla Fudge were a US band whose peak was from 1976-1970, basically making their fame making covers of what songs would sound like if you were on acid.
Check Eleanor Rigby and Ticket to Ride by the Beatles, the Supremes You Keep Me Hangin On, Donovan's Season of the Witch (one of the best psychedelic songs of all time), Walk on Bye, She's Not There (The Zombies) and more....

Each is slowed down to the level of a Black Sabbath lovers Stoner Rock Anthem, swims in Hammond organ and very serious vocals, with nothing under 9 minutes long.... Psychedelic heaven !

They had a pretty wild start to, being discovered by L.A. crime boss Philip Basille. They also reformed in 2007 releasing an appropriately named album, Out Through the In Door.

Don't take acid, it's bad for you, have a hit of Vanilla Fudge...........
