* I mentioned that we took Dr. Slingshot from The Amboy Dukes 1968 debut LP Journey To The Center Of The Mind. I stand corrected. The Amboy Dukes debuted with a 1967 self-tittled album that featured Baby Please Don't Go. Sorry Ted!

"we don't need no thought control"

RFW

The following is an excerpt from the wonderful We're Late For Class blog that features 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun' As Played By Vanilla Fudge Imitating Iron Butterfly When Fudge Were Forced To Open For Butterfly At The Fillmore West After In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida Went Top Ten!

Someone suggested the title might be too long. What do you think? Actually, it's a 'what-if' game. It came about during this weekend's session - augmented by a keg, fortified by Rudy's killer stash and some 60's psych albums. It started as a hypothetical...What if... the Vanilla Fudge flew out to the Fillmore West for a gig. When they arrived they saw Iron Butterfly during soundcheck. The Butterfly were polishing a new song they planned to premiere later that night - which the Fudge laughed off as being an incompetent rip off of Pink Floyd's "Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun." Bill Graham came along to tell them that, instead of closing the show, they'd be opening for Iron Butterfly because In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida just went Top 10. The Fudge were furious. Bad enough getting dicked around but... opening for Iron Butterfly was an insult that just would not stand. They threatened to walk but Graham reminded them he had a contract... and their return flight tickets. So, the group skipped soundcheck and even thought about skipping the gig when, instead, they showed up at the last minute to take the stage. Forgoing their usual set, Vanilla Fudge played a one song show. Their own, improvised version of 'Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun,' sounding amazingly like the Butterfly's soundcheck. Especially so, since the Fudge were actually imitating Iron Butterfly throughout the set, down to the simple riffs and shiny Nehru jackets. During the show, members of Iron Butterfly began collecting in the wings and vile stares were silently exchanged between members of both bands. But the Fudge did not let up... not until their contracted 40 minute performance time had expired. Afterwards, a fight breaks out backstage between Doug Ingle and Carmine Appice. The Fudge picked up their check and caught the redeye back to New York. This 40 minute track is the 'what if.' Recorded May 26, 2007, it features a Chinese water torture rhythm, faux Fillmore vibes, a space exploration about 22 minutes in and a mind numbing reprise another 10 minutes later. Get comfy, and get stoned. No ticket refunds.

I have been recalibrating the equipment here at RFW and have slightly reduced the master recording level. Please compensate this reduction with your speaker volume and I believe you will hear an overall improvement. I might tinker a bit more, but we are close. Enjoy!
