Love Iron Butterfly,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ball (Audio CD)
This album is so different from any other band. heavy tracks like In the time of our lives ( scraping guitar monsterous bass) the start is reminiscent of the start of Rondo by ELP all screaming fuzzy organ and guitar ( OK so ELP didnt feature much guitar). The other tracks are gentle ballads and more late 60s organ/guitar tracks. A bit Jefferson Airplane. The main points of any IB stuff are, fuzz guitar tastefully played, churchy organ playing and gruff vocals.
Oh, if you stare at the reverse colour photo of the band for while then shut your eyes you can see it normally for a while ( try it). Oh and 2 bonus tracks!
This version is a really great sounding master, the hiss is left in to give a nice warm clean almost vinyl sound.
