VANILLA FUDGE: 'You Keep Me Hanging On' (Atlantic).
Oh! I love it. Oh it's great. I didn't recognise the beginning at first. Yeah, Vanilla Fudge. They have an album out in the States with an 11 minute cut on it. It's just too much. I haven't heard the whole album only the 11 minute thing but I can tell you this group are going to be around for some while. They're not going to be one-record people. I don't mind if they go on reviving Tamla Motown numbers for ever if they're all going to come out like this one. Maybe they'll do 'Heroes And Villains'! Yeah, definitely a hit. Because they're playing it in clubs and ballrooms and that's where the hits come from.
