Nearly most everything that you want,
This review is from: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (Audio CD)
Iron Butterfly reincarnated themselves with the addition of Lee Dorman and Erik Brann in 1967 and earned their place in the Hall Of Fame with the 17:05 title track of this album, a slow-descending C-based blues riff that also featured one of rock music's most famous drum solos (though I dig the "laughing" guitar in it as well) that took up the whole of the old side two. Side one is also more than worth a listen including one of the 60's forgotten happy sounds Most Anything That You Want, with its fantastic wandering bassline, and the heavy urgent My Mirage. Great sounds from these South California hippies.

Wow spooky. Life certainly is stranger than fiction. As a bass player myself I really rate Lee Dorman, some of his melody lines are amazing and made the Butterfly one of the few bands where the bass was the lead instrument.

I have been off the ciggies for 5 months and treated myself to a bashed up Fender Telecaster which I do really like my fav would be a Gibson Les Paul, but a grand for a axe is alot of moola ,we have in the house one electric, two acoustic, one copy (fender bass)type hohner arbor..not bad for a guy who use to play the drums!!
