This review is from: Light and Heavy: The Best of Iron Butterfly (Audio CD)
Iron Butterfly is chiefly remembered for In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida which features here in its short version. For more background see reviews on Amazon.com site. This disc presents quite a representative selection of the output of Iron Butterfly in its many incarnations, including some tracks from my favourite album: Metamorphosis. If you are new to this band, this CD is an excellent introduction and may spur you on to get to know more of their music. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A steal at this price!!, 23 April 2001
This review is from: Light and Heavy: The Best of Iron Butterfly (Audio CD)
Iron Butterfly are a band that have been somewhat forgotten. The truth is that they were one of the most popular bands of their time. For those of you who have never heard them before, you might remember the film 'Manhunter' where the Iron Butterfly track 'In-a-gadda-da-vida' was the backround music to the final conflict.
Okay, not all their tracks are as good as 'Gada-da-vida', but not many tracks from any band are as good as 'Gada-da-vida'! At around seventeen minutes long, the track has it all, including psychedelic drum solo's and a catchy chorus.
The band's work became a benchmark and encapsulates an era in rock music. Buy this today before Amazon realize that they are selling it too cheap!!

4.0 out of 5 stars i am gonna be honest, 25 Nov 2003
By 
This review is from: Light and Heavy: The Best of Iron Butterfly (Audio CD)
i actually mainly got the CD for 'in-a-gadda-da-vida' and (i know its sad but) mainly because of the simpsons...
but im glad i did... its a good album, with good music, and well worth a buy!
If you dont know what im talking about when i refer to in-a-gadda-da-vida featuring in the simpsons then your missing out on a quality episode... you should watch more TV
