here. 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. That hit treatment became, as
these four CDs show, a blueprint for almost everything the group
played. But the Fudge combined their flashy melodrama with great
taste in songwriters (the Zombies, Donovan, Lee Hazlewood) and
bar-band brawn, the last in full effect on the two discs of live
recordings from 1969 at the Fillmore west." - D.F. / Rolling Stone
