In Response to Hi Firstwalt Part 2:
I wanted to mention that I did see The Young Rascals later on at The Fillmore in S.F. and like Vanilla Fudge they dressed a whole lot sharper than most other acts. Proud to be a New Yorker...Peace, John

Hey John ! Boy talk about a small world, eh ? I had heard that the Rascals were formerly another band, however I never heard them prior to being the Rascals. Now, Vanilla Fudge: I saw them for the first of 3 times at the Fillmore East ( probably while you were at Fillmore West, lol ! ) My God but they were powerful. I had never seen such a driving drummer as Carmine Appice. I mean, Dino Danelli was smokin fast , but Carmine was fast AND hard. That first night they opened for The Amboy Dukes ( yep, with Ted ! ) and were preceded by Moby Grape... You got your money's worth in those days, eh !
btw. not completely willing to call the Rascals well dressed, I mean, knickers !? ... although they did match, lol I Fudge on the other hand, matching irridesent sharkskin.... sharp !
btw # 2 "Keep Me Hanging on", "Some Velvet Morning," and 'Where Is Happiness" as well as The entire Album "Collections" still play at my house !
