If you don't like this album, then you certainly don't like this band. How could you negatively review this?? This is THE ONLY document of Iron Butterfly live in concert (I also have a great video distributed by Rhino featuring the lip- synch of "In-A-Gadda" and two tunes live from the Beat Club: "Easy Rider" and "Butterfly Bleu"- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED). The only reason that I am rating this one 4 out of 5 is the fact that the whole show was obviously not included. I doubt that any other live Butterfly will ever see the light of day, but if so, I'll be the first to buy it, regardless of sound quality. There are mistakes here, and the band isn't as tight as on the records. But this is the psychedelic era, and this is to be expected. These are great, energetic, and awesome improvisations based on the studio versions of each song. Erik's guitar solos wail. I think they're better here than in the studio. You can and will hear the late, great Erik Keith Brann at his best on "Iron Butterfly Live", if you have the guts to go out and pick it up. Forget buying anything else until you've heard this one.

This album has an undeserved reputation for being one of the worst rock albums ever recorded. However nothing could be further from the truth. There's NOTHING wrong with this album at all. In fact, it's probably the only Iron Butterfly album where the organ isn't under-recorded. Most of the songs on the album are actually better than the studio versions. Filled with Fear for example has the most psychedelic guitar solo you'll ever want to hear. Regretably, however, the drum solo on In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida goes on a bit too long

If I was going to buy only one Iron Butterfly album, it would be this one. The original vinyl release of this album was, for many years, the only Iron Butterfly album I owned. I recently bought it on cd, and it sounds a good as ever. I now own most of their albums on vinyl, and recently bought In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida and Light & Heavy: Best of, but this is still, in my opinion, their best recording.

Most of my favorite Iron Butterfly songs are on this album and I like these live versions better than the studio recordings. They have more energy and emotion than the originals.

Someone complained about a "problem" with feedback on 'In The Time of Our Lives'. I think I heard a little feedback toward the end, but throughout this song, and the whole album, I hear some great guitar effects, which is part of why I like it better than the studio recordings. As far as the audience noises, that is usually expected in a live setting, and for me, doesn't distract from the music. Also, when I go to a live concert, or purchase a live album, I don't expect an exact reproduction of the original recordings. In fact, I want something different.

The psychedelic effects and clanking "heavy metal" sounds from Erik Brann's guitar and the dramatic vocals of Doug Ingle at the organ, along with Lee Dorman on bass and vocals and Ron Bushy on drums, add up to a great experience. As a previous reviewer said, I don't know how you can like Iron Butterfly, if you don't like this album.

I've always considered the live version of 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida', superior to the original.

Oh if you have to ask then you either didn't grow up listening to this or you don't know the complexities of music and coordination that came about to produce such a piece of music as this, even if it was done under the influence of drugs. just have to say, "wow man"!

Anno 1970 they published the commented output here of psychedelic/hard rock-legends Iron Butterfly, whose legendary status is mainly due to the most famous piece of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", which is of course also included in this phonogram. The work was recorded in the cast Doug Ingle (organ, vocals), Lee Dorman (bass, backing vocals), Erik Brann (guitar) and Ron Bushy (drums, who also contributed photos for coverartwork, alongside Bob Jenkins). Richard Podolor, who worked for example with Steppenwolf and John Kay (solo), was the producer. The first 5 pieces formed the A-side of the old vinyl, while the Ingle-written "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (as already on the eponymous album from 1968, one of the world's most successful rock albums ever!) the entire B-side filled. "Live" reached a respectable 20th place in the US-Billboard album charts and ranks in the oeuvre of the band for their successful albums. This output here includes some parallels to other groups of early hard-rock of the late 1960s. The organ-work partly reminds a little of the Doors. The guitar is partially pretty strongly rocked (eg. on the slightly menacing-looking "Filled With Fear", "You Can't Win" and "Are You Happy", the latter from the same original album like the long track of the B-side). But an outstanding piece of this live-album is that already mentioned "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". The driving basic melody is the thrilling backdrop for all kinds of solo trips by guitar, drums (long, but never intrusive or sprawling acting solo) and organ, and makes this piece to an eternal classic of psychedelic/hard-rock. I personally like the present live version here even better than the studio version.Read more ›
