Same thing as a Jefferson Airplane or a Three Dog Night.

Not a BIG fan but, I've got most of their albums (on CD now, though). Some of it is a bit campy but I do enjoy them from time to time.

Favorites songs include their big hit, "Soul Experience" and "In The Time Of Our Lives".

Now, the Metamorphosis album is my favorite "whole" album! Not a dud in that one!

Iron Butterfly trivia - Started out as a song with words, "In a Garden of Eden, Baby". Many hours later "Ina Gadda Da Vida, Baby". 8)

Dirty Hippy Trivia:

Iron Butterfly was booked to appear, and is listed on the Woodstock poster for a Sunday performance, but could not perform because they were stuck at LaGuardia Airport. According to Production Coordinator John Morris, "They sent me a telegram saying, 'We will arrive at LaGuardia. You will have helicopters pick us up. We will fly straight to the show. We will perform immediately, and then we will be flown out.' And I picked up the phone and called Western Union ... And [my telegram] said: 'For reasons I can't go into / Until you are here / Clarifying your situation / Knowing you are having problems / You will have to find / Other transportation / Unless you plan not to come.'" (The first letter of each line in the telegram spelled out an acrostic making clear that Iron Butterfly was not welcome.)

I have that album, plus their album Ball. This may have been viewed by some on here, but this girl really does a good job on drums with IAGDVB. Ron Bushy's wife was impressed with her.
