VANILLA FUDGE: "YOU KEEP ME HANGING ON"

This vid is ridiculously quiet - so turn it all the way up! - but this is the performance I really wanted to post; It's just so 'right' on so many levels. Sure, it's (selfconsciously) hammy, showbizzy and theatrical, but - holy fuck - it certainly hits a spot for me tonight, fusing Hard Rock n Blues with a quasi Soul Review sound, a semi-futuristic / Mod-SF version of Spector's Girl Band Look and some guys dressed as, uh, Wizards. Puts the 2010s to shame.
