Island’s Vanilla Fudge formed in 1966 when vocalist and organist Mark Stein,
bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice came together to form one of the
most influential rock trios of the 1960s. Initially inspired by The Rascals’
organ dominated rock, Vanilla Fudge signed to Atlantic Records releasing their
self-titled debut album in August 1967. Famous for their extended
interpretations of classic material such as ‘You Keep Me Hanging On’ and ‘Eleanor
Rigby’, by 1969 the band had influenced emerging bands such as Uriah Heep, Yes
and Deep Purple, but had tired of the touring and recording treadmill.
Roll” would be the band’s final album of their initial formation. Released in
September 1969, the album maintained the excellence of their previous works,

Best known as vocalist for prog-rockers Renaissance. Annie Haslam came from a musical family, her father was an amateur singer and comedian and her brother Michael was a mid 60s rock'n'roller. She studied as a fashion designer at University which is where she first started to sing and then studied under opera singer Sybil Knight, before in late 1970 answering an advert in Melody Maker to become Renaissance's new vocalist.
As lead vocalist for Renaissance Annie Haslam became one of the most highly regarded vocalists. Her crystalline, five octave soprano remained the groups focal point throughout the remainder of their career. While still fronting the band she made her solo debut album Annie in Wonderland with Roy Wood producing in 1977. "Still Life” followed in 1985 followed by this self titled album released in 1985, after which she relocated to the US.
This is a hauntingly beautiful and personal collection with gorgeous musical texture and dazzling performances.
