Still sunny and radiant, though less joyful and buoyant, the Monkees' "I'm a Believer" brakes to more of a mid-tempo groove, while "Ruby Tuesday" And "Whiter Shade of Pale" assume different shapes, trading haunting atmospherics for more powerful, fleshed-out instrumentation.
In "The Letter," lush piano parts give way to a more raucous mid-section, channeling the raw emotions of its lyrics. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.

But soon they need to pound those drums and lean heavy on the organ and guitar riffs. But after each chorus they sneakily take you back to the lounge.

I'm a Believer. Gimme Some Lovin'. I give Vanilla Fudge a strong five stars for this album and as a salute their legendary status as THE heavy rock and roll band ever since the sixties. Spirit of '67 sounds big, powerful, bowsum, and heavy as only the Fudge can do. Yes, they play their own songs and covers but there has never been any mistaking the unique Vanilla Fudge sound. Crank it up and disturb the neighbors I'm doing that right now.
It's their unique and powerful arrangements that brand Vanilla Fudge as a truly monumental band, the founding artists of the symphonic rock sound, and one cause of cultural disapproval back in the day. Today with this album the Fudge are fresh, strong, and their talent shines more now than ever before. I saw the Fudge in their Farewell tour in , and again in February in this tour, and I'm looking forward to seeing their 50th anniversary tour in Vanilla Fudge is rocking proof that time on the road and studio for decades is what it takes to be a grand-master band.
Go see Vanilla Fudge live if they come to your town! Fans of classic rock will remember the original hit makers of these songs.
As for the album's production, I do resist the glossy pop star perfect note stamp-'em-out safe hit tunes. Not here! That is Mark Stein digging into a Hammond organ with fury and passion where church meets rockin' soul meets big watts to form a wall of sound that makes the Fudge sound so heavy.
Pete Bremy hits the bass guitar as only a master musician only can. A great bass, an excellent technical set up, and his vocal talent carries the high end in contrast. Carmine Appice is such a great entertainer. His power drums, and stickwork is such a crowd pleaser, and hat's off to his fine work over the years. Buy Spirit of 67, and look into the Vanilla Fudge library for more loud, proud, and fun sounds from this legendary band. Watch them on YouTube. I sure hope that those folks in that lakeside building in Cleveland finally come around to honor the real deal master entertainers of our day like the Vanilla Fudge.
