4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the LONGEST one hit wonder of all time, 16 Dec. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (Audio CD)
When my father was stationed in Japan at the end of the Sixties we only had Armed Forces Radio to listen to and one weekend they did the top 100 songs of all time ("Satisfaction" was picked #1). But for many of us the big treat came early in the countdown when they played the legendary "long" version of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." The funny thing about owning this CD is that I have heard the first couple of seconds of the five songs before the title track for the first time since I bought the record and listened to the first side exactly ONE TIME (and I know I am not alone in that). There are certainly hard rock classics with compelling guitar riffs and driving drum beats that you have to own and "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" is on the short list, along with "Sunshine of Your Love" and "Whole Lotta Love," and the bottom line is that the only way of having this song is to have this CD. It does not matter than you cannot name any other song on the album let alone the names of any of the members of the band (I do seem to remember several were self-described "nomads"). You are never going to find this song on a hit collection. In fact, I do not think I have ever seen one with the "short" version of this song. But at least once a year you have to take this one out and listen to the whole 17 minutes and five seconds because you have to know your rock and roll roots.
