Though the music of New York-based psychedelic rockers Vanilla Fudge has not remained part of the mainstream classic-rock pantheon, their late-1960s albums were huge influences on everything from prog rock to early heavy metal. The best of these recordings, featured here, find the quartet deconstructing pop hits of the day ("Ticket to Ride," "You Keep Me Hangin' On"), slowing them down and extending them with instrumental extemporization, dynamic shifts, and epic structures. As captured on PSYCHEDELIC SUNDAE, Vanilla Fudge's trademark heavy Hammond organ and distorted guitar tones create a larger-than-life sound full of power, ambition, and psychedelic wonder.
