Renaissance
Used - LP - SD 33-244
1968 US Purple & Tan Label Heavy Vinyl Stereo Original; Monarch Pressing. "What Made Vanilla Fudge So Intriguing Was How They And Producer Shadow Morton Mutated Hit Songs By Stretching The Tempo To Slow Motion So Exquisite That Even An Overexposed Song By The Supremes Sounded New On The Radio. The Formula Worked Fine On Covers, But Despite Their Collective Talent, The Material They Composed On Renaissance Feels More Like Psychedelic Meeting Progressive And Has Less Of That Commercial Magic. Renaissance Is A Concept Album, Produced And Directed By Shadow Morton, The Man Who Brought You The Shangri-las And Who Produced The Second Album For The New York Dolls. With A Long Poem By Carl Deangelis On The Back Cover And An Amazing Construction Of A Mount Rushmore-type Set Of Statues Of The Band Members On The Front, Sculpted In The Stars Away From Earth, The Band Moved Into An Arena Yearned For By Iron Butterfly And Rare Earth: Respectability. Carmine Appice's "Faceless People" Is The Band's Standard Sound On An Unfamiliar Tune. While It Is Highly Listenable, Not The Tedious Chore Lesser Music In Lesser Hands Becomes, Top 40 Could Hardly Respond To An Epic Like That Or "The Sky Cried When I Was A Boy." This Is The Punk Version Of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, And There Should Have Been A Bigger Market For It On Fm Radio. Singer Mark Stein And Tim Bogert Compose A Prototype That Bands Like Uriah Heep Should Have Embraced. Calvin Schenkel's "The Spell That Comes After" Offers More Than The Band's Originals, Though Vince Martell's Fuzz Guitar On "The Sky Cried" Meeting The Superb Vocals Suspended Somewhere Above It All Makes For A Nice Musical Sandwich; Their Name Far More Appropriate Than The Trendy-for-the-time Vibe Vanilla Fudge Suggests. Martell's "Thoughts" Is Eerily Cosmic And Spaced -- His Creativity Seemed Kept In Check By The Band, Which Is A Pity; His Early 1980 Demos Without The Group Evidence That His Contributions Were Essential, Despite The Fame Bogert And Appice Would Find. Renaissance Is A Solid, Albeit Typical, Release From This Innovative Group. Sundazed Has Re-released Renaissance With Three Additional Tracks. The Cover Of Donovan's "Season Of The Witch" Does More With Those Two Famous Chords Than Most. It Is A Highlight And Proves That Covers Should Have Been Evenly Matched With The Originals On These Early Discs. That's What Got Them The Audience In The First Place, And Reinvention Is What They Did Best." AMG - Joe Viglione. more

Mint 1969 Yellow Label 2nd Issue In Shrink Wrap With Custom "You Keep Me Hangin' On" Sticker Over Shrink. "In A Debut Consisting Of Covers, Nobody Could Accuse Vanilla Fudge Of Bad Taste In Their Repertoire; With Stoned-Out, Slowed-Down Versions Of Such Then-Recent Classics As "Ticket To Ride," "Eleanor Rigby," And "People Get Ready," They Were Setting The Bar Rather High For Themselves. Even The One Suspect Choice — Sonny Bono's "Bang Bang" — Turns Out To Be Rivaled Only By Mott The Hoople's Version Of "Laugh At Me" In Putting Bono’s Songwriting In The Kindest Possible Light. Most Of The Tracks Here Share A Common Structure Of A Disjointed Warm-Up Jam, A Hammond-Heavy Dirge Of Harmonized Vocals At The Center, And A Final Flat-Out Jam. Still, Some Succeed Better Than Others: "You Keep Me Hanging On" Has A Wonderfully Hammered-Out Drum Part, And "She's Not There" Boasts Some Truly Groovy Organ Jams. While The Pattern Can Sound Repetitive Today, Each Song Still Works As A Time Capsule Of American Psychedelia." Paul Collins, AMG. more

2020 Half-speed audiophile remastered reissue from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. This is an un-numbered promo copy! The self-titled debut album from Vanilla Fudge, released in 1967, is a groundbreaking psychedelic rock album. The band's trademark sound, characterized by heavy, distorted guitar riffs, thundering drums, and lush harmonies, is on full display here. The album's standout tracks include the haunting "You Keep Me Hangin' On," a brilliant cover of the Supremes hit, and "Ticket to Ride," a frenzied interpretation of the Beatles classic. The band also showcases their impressive musicianship on the instrumental "Illusions of My Childhood - Part One" and the extended jam "Eleanor Rigby" which features a guest appearance by singer-songwriter Mark Stein. The album's experimental production techniques, including the use of tape manipulation and distortion, add to its overall trippy vibe. Vanilla Fudge's debut album remains a must-hear for fans of psychedelic and hard rock, and a testament to the band's influence on the genre. more

2004 Mono Reissue. "Nine Of The 11 Tracks Here Are Ballads. Their Uncluttered Arrangements Spotlight Jacintha's Smooth And Sensuous Voice, While Her Expressive Phrasing Draws The Most From The Classic Johnny Mercer Lyrics. Jacintha Includes The Original Lyrics To "Autumn Leaves," Done In Soft And Flawless French; Otherwise, Her Primary Innovation Is To Deliver The Tunes Straight And Sincerely, With Minimal Improvisation And Maximum Tenderness. There's No Trace Of The Customary Bitterness In "One More For The Road," And Her Unaccompanied Reading Of "Moon River" Liberates That Song From Any Prior Goopy Associations. In Fact, Her Version Brings Out The Poignancy Of The Lyrics So Purely That Her Additional Chorus, Coming After A Rather Wandering Piano Interlude, Seems Redundant. The Band Is Good But Pretty Restrained Throughout, Supplying Subtle Commentary And Close Support, Then Breaks Out Nicely On The Two Up-tempo Tracks: "And The Angels Sing" And "Something's Got To Give." Jacintha's Measured, Legato Approach Isn't Very Conducive To Swinging, But Listening To "Skylark"And "Midnight Sun," In Particular, Is Like Sipping Cool Champagne In A Fragrant Hot Tub. Another Highlight Is The Bonus Track, "Here's To Life," A Signature Tune For Shirley Horn, Which Jacintha Takes At A Slightly Faster Tempo. While It's Not A Mercer Lyric, Its Beautiful Sentiments And Melody Fit Nicely Into This Relaxed And Intimate Set. Whatever This Cd May Lack In Fire, It Makes Up For In Warmth.in A Debut Consisting Of Covers, Nobody Could Accuse Vanilla Fudge Of Bad Taste In Their Repertoire; With Stoned-out, Slowed-down Versions Of Such Then-recent Classics As "Ticket To Ride," "Eleanor Rigby," And "People Get Ready," They Were Setting The Bar Rather High For Themselves.
