      As a v. young and budding rock band organist, Stein was one of my idols. The Fudge's second album (The Beat Goes On) was more psychedelic with mind blowing versions of Fur Elise and Moonlight Sonata. Any hint of classical training or influence and I went nuts - even the oboe in The Left Bank's "Walk Away Renee" was a cause celebre. None of which prepared me for Matthew Fisher and, to a lesser extent, Gary Booker. If you played a B3, you had my attention (Felix Pappalardi, Keith Emerson [The Nice], Ray the Man Manzerak)

      I might have picked some Yardbirds album - Beck and Clapton in the same band, so many killer tunes: For Your Love, Heartful of Soul, Over Under Sideways Down, Smokestack Lightning... but yeah, its a good list.

        And for my time as a drummer, I loved Carmine Appice. Put him up there with the best of the best! Near the Beginning is one of the most underrated classic rock albums.

        Huge Procol Harum fan too. Shine On Brightly still on my desert island list. Just found a decent condition copy of an early pressing on Record Store Day

      Ten for ten in my collection. IMO the most significant are Vanilla Fudge, Black Sabbath and Zeppelin as they essentially broke new ground stylistically. I like Ozzy's description of their early music, sounding like it should be a soundtrack to a horror show.
