One of the definitive documents of the acid-rock era. The 17-minute title odyssey joins My Mirage; Flowers and Beads; Are You Happy, and the rest of their fuzzed-out 1968 classic!
Iron Butterfly's 1968 album veritably defined the burgeoning genre of hard-rock, primarily by way of its utterly over-the-top title cut. Reportedly composed by keyboardist/lead singer Doug Ingle in such a stoned-out, numb-tongued condition that he couldn't properly pronounce its intended title--"In the Garden of Eden"--the track seemed almost a parody of every excessive inclination of psychedelia. Melodramatic vocals, repetitive riffing, aimless solos--you name it, this 17-minute behemoth had it. Aided by radio DJs who loved to programme it in its entirety so they could take "legitimate" breaks, it became an unavoidable hit--and an anthem of its era. --Billy Altman

And, in amongst it all, check out the drum solo. "De rigour" for its time but clever because it's not at all "flashy" and, in fact, not particularly good technically, but because it sits there as an essential element in building the "atmosphere" on which the success of the track relies. Not your usual "give the guy his three minute spot to show what he can do" but rather, by design or chance, an extremely rare example of how to make a drum solo an integral & welcome part of a piece of quite stunning rock music.
I grew up in West Africa, after the first 5 years of my life were spent in the UK (where I now live again), so my abiding memories of the music of the late 60s and 70s are in an environment of blue skies, green seas and cool breeze, beach parties and star-filled African Skies... as an IB lyric goes "when we were but children fair, those were the best years of our lives"
The music impressed me enough to remember their names without consulting Google: Doug Ingle's trippy organ, Lee Dorman's heavy-handed bass, Ron Bushy's elephantine drumming and guitarist Keith Brann (who sadly passed away a few years ago) was a 17-year old wonder-kid from whom (along with Neal Schon of Journey) great things were expected.
One of my favourite progressive rock albums of all time (behind only the likes of Hendrix's Axis Bold as Love and Electric Ladyland, Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Led Zeppelin 2) is Metamorphosis, in which Brann had been replaced by the guitarists Mike Pinera and Rhino Reinhardt. "Butterfly Bleu" is an abiding memory of smooching a favourite "hippy chick" in my arms one moment, then us both boogying and thrashing wildly moments later. Ahh, "God Bless you, God", those were the days...
Thanks for the memories guys, wherever you are.

Definitely a period piece, could provide great music for period film/TV doc.s or dramas, but everybody in the known universe should buy this for the sheer delight of the drum solo... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
