Vanilla Fudge 2004 Rockpalast Gig To Get Deluxe Package Issue

Music Video Distributors will release Vanilla Fudge - You Keep Me Hangin' On a deluxe 2 DVD + audio CD package of proto metal legends Vanilla Fudge's 2004 appearance on German TV's Rockpalast on August 11th.

The DVD was recorded at the famous Rockpalast in Bonn, Germany during their European tour of 2004. The line-up features the original group's two core members, drummer Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert on bass. Teddy Rondinell plays guitar, with Bill Pasrali on keyboards.

The set features a mix of favorites from their Sixties repertoire such as 'People Get Ready', 'She's Not There' and 'You Keep Me Hangin' On', as well as a distinctive interpretation of Rod Stewart's hit 'Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?'

As well as being one of the best selling album rock acts of the late Sixties, Vanilla Fudge was also one of its most influential. Acknowledged as being pioneers of heavy metal, they inspired groups like Deep Purple. Vanilla Fudge's trademark stoned-sounding and dramatically slowed down treatments of well-known pop songs, embellished with piercing organ sounds and mock gospel harmonies, were unique at the time and endeared them to the hip psychedelic fraternity. Their best known track, a dramatic reworking of The Supreme's 'You Keep Me Hangin' On', gave them a major hit on both sides of the Atlantic.
