Vanilla Fudge @ Divan du Monde, Paris March 14 2014
As you can guess the entire set consists of almost only cover songs as Vanilla Fudge were famous and had hit records but never with their own songs. The guys know how to play, technically it's perfect. The musicianship is very high. Mark Stein still has a fantastic voice.
Carmine is a monster on drums always doing the right thing,very demonstrative but not overplaying. Maybe the low point of the show is the arrangement of the songs that is sounding very dated, typically the kind of things from the late 60's-early 70's. with lots of breaks and instumental parts
The whole band went to the merchandise table to sign anything you wanted and were VERY nice with everybody, which is very rare nowadays. So a big "Thank you" to them.
