Dr. Covach gives a presentation on the "psychedelic-symphonic cover," a type of cover version pioneered by the American band Vanilla Fudge that transforms a short pop song into a much longer and more ambitious track. Covach explores the influence of Vanilla Fudge in the music of the English progressive rock band, Yes, whose later symphonic-rock epics owe much to their earlier imitation of Vanilla Fudge's practice of creating extended covers. Presented by Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. Free.
