Launch Radio Networks reports: VANILLA FUDGE are in southern California this week, recording an album of LED ZEPPELIN covers. Drummer Carmine Appice gave Launch the scoop on what the band is doing. "Basically, we rearranged some songs — we're doing a lot of their stuff FUDGE style, you know? Some of it is slowed down, and some of it is speeded up, and some of it has additional parts added. Boy, we got some great stuff. Our manager came down and was flipping out about it."Appice also told Launch there's a preliminary title for the album. "We're thinking of calling it 'The Song Almost Remains The Same', but it could be taken as a bit of a joke with that title, you know?" he said. If all goes according to plan, the FUDGE/ZEPPELIN album will be out in the fall, probably in October. The LED ZEPPELIN-VANILLA FUDGE relationship runs almost 40 years. Back in December 1968, ZEPPELIN came to the U.S. for the first time, as the opening act for VANILLA FUDGE and the MC5.
