Vanilla Fudge - Two Worlds Collide

Vanilla Fudge is an American band that first came to prominence in 1967. The band subsequently recorded a number of albums between 1967 and when they split in 1970. Vanilla Fudge also enjoyed success in the American singles chart with a slowed-down arrangement of the Supremes hit You Keep Me Hangin’ On.

Formed by keyboardist Mark Stein and rhythm section Tim Bogert (Bassist) and Carmine Appice, the final member was guitarist Vince Martell. In addition to the cover of the Supremes hit the band, who were enamoured of The Beatles, also covered Ticket To Ride and Eleanor Rigby, which were apparently thought of favourably by The Beatles. The band were criticised by some for merely being a covers band. However, the band were more than capable of writing their own material and as arrangers, the success of the various covers the band did speaks for itself.

The band split for the first time in 1970 with Bogert and Appice forming the hard-rock outfit Cactus before reappearing in 1972 with Jeff Beck in Beck Bogert and Appice. This supergroup,  however, only managed to record one officially released studio album and a live album released only in Japan.

Following the break up of BBA Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice followed their own routes before re-forming Vanilla Fudge in 1982. There have been other reunions since then, which have seen the band recording and playing concerts.

This CD is the audio equivalent of the recently released DVD and features the latest incarnation of Vanilla Fudge with core members Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice alongside newer members Teddy Rondinelli on guitar and Bill Pascali on keyboards. The concert features a full symphonic orchestra alongside the band and feature on arrangements of the band's most popular numbers. The band run through key Vanilla Fudge songs including Take Me For A Little While, Season Of The Witch, She’s Not There and of course You keep Me Hangin’ On. There is also a cover of the Rod Stewart Hit Do Ya Think I’m Sexy, which Carmine Appice wrote whilst a member of Rod Stewart's band during the seventies.
