This is a reported Marty Weinberg audience recording. Many songs have been
clipped at the beginning or end, though most of these cuts are minor.
There are occasional, faint moments of static or degradation throughout this
recording. Besides the flaws, which are minor, this is one of the better
audience recordings of the year.

Several large dropouts were adjusted, such that extremely low levels were
normalized and smoothed over using Sound Forge:
d1t06 @ 1:30
d1t06 @ 3:20
d1t09 @ 4:02 (irreparable)
d1t09 @ 4:20
d1t09 @ 6:10
d2t03 @ 1:22 (irreparable)
d2t05 @ 1:20
d3t07 @ 0:35
d3t09 @ 10:03

other notes:
–reel flip @ 0:55 in FOTD
–tape flutter at beginning of St. Stephen
–it seems the recording has picked up a nearby radio station as overlapping
music can be heard during parts of St. Stephen
–the order of the songs is uncertain, as the placement of Good Lovin’ is

Total time: 42:04

Comments from the original uploader: Final of only four non-GD Garcia performances of “Peggy-O”.

Very good audience recording with minor level fluctuations largely related to the taper turning down the gain because of audience noise – most notable at the beginning of sets and at the first notes of Ripple. There were some pauses between tracks with a couple instances of the clipping of the first note. Silent gaps between pauses were removed and the overall level of the recording was increased by 1.5 dB using SF6.

Notes from the taper:
This is my 3rd try at digitizing & transferring one of my self recorded masters.It’s the 3rd of my “top 3” favorites,from the recordings I made mostly in the 80’s.Vanilla fudge,in their 2nd reunion.This is at the Rochester Auditorium,1.31.87. The sound is good, maybe very good,not great.the band is comprised of greatness.Mark Stein,keyboards & vocals (“extraordinare”),Carmine Appice,one the all time top drummers,Tim Bogert,one of the all time premiere bassist,these two also of “Cactus” & “Beck, Bogert & Appice fame, and the only non-original member, Paul Hansen, a great lead guitarist, who fully tears it up on this recording.

From their 1st albums,starting in ’66 or ’67, which had at least the 1st 3 when they came out,they were at the top of my favorite bands. I watched them on Ed Sullivan.Getting to see them live for the 1st time,even near 20 yrs after their inception,was a major thrill for me & as the tape reveals a few times,i just couldn’t contain my excitement to whoop it up & sing along, here & there. Sorry about that..this for me, was like a teenage girl getting to see the Beatles. Sometimes, i don’t know how I managed to tape these shows..

The sound is right there, maybe not fully up front, but decent presence. As far as i know, I was the sole taper of this show & this tape has never before been heard. The performance is no less than phenomenal,imho, at least on the old, classic numbers. I cannot help but have the sense that 3 or 4 of those original tunes are better performed than on the original albums,and while i have not heard much of Fudge boots, hard for me to imagine more epic performances of the tunes: “she’s not there”, “take me for a little while”, “elenor rigby”, which is so amazing it could very well be the hottest rendition, cover or not, of all time!, “shotgun”, “people get ready” and of course, “you keep me hanging on”. The opening 3 of 4 songs are mind blowing psychadelic versions of great, great tunes! I just hope the sound is good enough for listeners to really crank it. They just dont make music like this anymore. A fair measure of the greatness contained herein, is the fact they are still doing it to this day, nearly 50 yrs later, with the original performers, minus the great Tim Bogert.

Enjoy (hard not to) and i would very much appreciate your feedback on this show.
