Iron Butterfly Live
First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Release
Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music And Capitol Mastering, Hollywood, CA
Features The 1970 Concert Classic 19 Minute Version Of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
Iron Butterfly is truly an amazing success story in the record business. For over forty years, this band remained a significant force in the classic rock world with their original mix of rock, metal and classic leanings, solidifying them as one of the true purveyors of the progressive rock movement. Founded by the multi-talented keyboardist/vocalist Doug Ingle in San Diego in 1966, the band hit the charts immediately and soon became one of the key favorite biker bands and west coast hard rockers alongside entities like Steppenwolf, Grateful Dead and The Doors.
Their live performances were challenging, loud, exciting and definitely original, which brought them huge popularity in a very short period of time. 1968 changed everything as In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida became a massive smash garnering Iron Butterfly major success globally. This tune displayed the first example of a driving hard rock jam and lyric, with classical, organic and tribal rhythms, making it one of the most important songs of our time. Featuring Doug Ingle's keyboard and vocal expertise, Lee Dorman's power bass, guitar shredder Erik Brann, and Ron Bushy's primitive drum beat, this amazing stage shows will forever be associated with the acid rock era, which paved the way for heavy metal bands into the seventies and beyond.
ATCO Records knew the power of their live performances,therefore the quartet was awarded with another smash Lp, the concert recording masterwork chart topper Iron Butterfly Live. The 1970 smash contained 6 smokin' selections from their first three hit albums. Hard rock is abounding like the 19 minute workout on In-A Gadda-Da-Vida and other killer jams like Soul Experience, Are You Happy and Filled With Fear.
This masterpiece has been out of print on vinyl for many decades that is until now! Friday Music is very proud to offer another installment in our Iron Butterfly 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their classic 1970 smash album Iron Butterfly Live .
Impeccably mastered from the original Atco tapes by Joe Reagoso (Grateful Dead/Yes/Deep Purple) at Friday Music Studios, this limited edition 180 Gram LP is also presented in the original album cover layout, featuring the original photos and artwork elements not seen in years.
