Heavy starts with Vanilla Fudge. There was nothing, even in 1967, like the 10-ton shock of this Long Island quartet’s cover of the Supreme’s You Keep Me Hanging On, with the lava-flow sustain of Mark Stein’s Hammond organ and Carmine Appice’s rapid-cannon-fire drum fills. Beginning in 1967, Vanilla Fudge rocked the world with a new sound, influencing a generation of musicians and creating a legion of loyal fans.
