Muze PNote Iron Butterfly was the American answer to the heavy riff-rock of British groups like Cream and Led Zeppelin, with a touch of Vanilla Fudge's organ-led theatricality and the Doors' mysterioso image. They will forevermore be known for the 17-minute title track of this, their second album.
Muze PNote "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (a poke at singer/organist Doug Ingle's gruff, John Kay-like delivery of "In the Garden of Eden") is built around one of the most memorable riffs of the '60s. It's filled out by long solos from all concerned, especially from drummer Ron Bushy, whose lengthy extemporizing provided the template for Big Rock Drum Solos for decades to come. The rest of the tunes reveal that Iron Butterfly did indeed possess some pop sensibility to leaven the heaviness; "Flowers and Beads" in particular is simultaneously a romantic '60s pop-rock ballad and a subtle but surprising swipe at flower power culture.

Producer: Jim Hilton; Richard Polodor

Engineer: Jim Hilton

Artist Overview

Iron Butterfly will forever be a part of the rock pantheon on the strength of their signature song "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," the title track from their 1968 second album. A gargantuan piece of primordial riff-rock, it took up the entire first side of the LP, but still became a huge success, epic-length drum solo and all. With their heavy guitars, spooky organ, and air of mystery, they were the missing link between the Doors and Led Zeppelin, effectively building a bridge between '60s psychedelia and '70s hard rock.

- 3 Stars - Good - "...The ingredients are standard '68: cod-mysticism, implied sex, baroque organ doodlings, freaked-out guitar stuff and shouting. Put them together and you're three million copies of the IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA album lighter..."
