Proof that an old Iron Butterfly boosted by session guys and a flash no name guitarist, should never be seen never mind heard. The magic has gone along with Erik Braun ( RIP ) His loss from the band was bigger than Doug Ingles. They wouldnt let it lie.
To sum up old looking guys playing what amounts to covers of IB stuff without conviction or gravity and simply wasting our time

Well have been a fan of Butterfly from their beginnings. The dvd is possiblely the best we can get unless they get together and do one with a half decent picture and 5.1 sound.The dvd claims Dolby Digital AC3 but its not, only 2.0 and bad at that.I still prefer my old Iron Butterfly Laser Disc thanks.

HASH(0x8acb1384) out of 5 stars "Best Butterfly Footage Ever Released" 12 Feb. 2009
By Trout Voice - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First off this DVD is from the 1997 European tour, not 1977 as Amazon has misprinted. I saw this lineup of Butterfly in July 1995 and they were amazing. They said at the show that a new album would be released by next Spring. The "New Album" never materialized. I dont know exactly how long this lineup stayed together but in my opinion its the best that the band has ever sounded (no offense to the prior lineups). With Doug Ingle on Lead Vocals and Keyboards, Lee Dorman on Bass and backing Vocals, Ron Bushy on Drums, Eric Barnett on Guitar and Backing Vocals and Derek Hilland on 2nd Keyboards and backing Vocals this band is sensational.
The Five stars I gave this product mainly represents the Quality of the performances. The Sound is very good and the picture is a little grainy at times, also I dont like the fadeouts between songs. That said there is nothing more to complain about other than it's only about 65 mins. of Music. The songs played are: Iron Butterfly Theme, Unconcious Power, In the Time of Our Lives, Flowers and Beads, Silent Screaming, Ezy Rider, Butterfly Bleu, Whispers in the Wind and of course In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. "Screaming and Whispers" are "New songs".
After the "Concert portion of the DVD you get the Bonus Interviews which include a nice Acoustic song by Ingle. The Interviews are very informative and entertaing. Doug Ingle expresses himself well. Steve Howe of Yes talks a bit about his memories of touring alongside the Butterfly. At this time the DVD is available on Amazon for as little as $12.33. I highly reccomend that if you ever liked Butterfly at all to check this show out. Eric Barnetts Guitar work adds a whole new dimension to the classic sound of this great band. His playing exhuberates a lot of soul in each string of notes. Ingle sounds like nobody else and his voice is in great shape after so many years. Enjoy!!!

HASH(0x8af49390) out of 5 stars Butterfly Live is Fair at Best!!!! 12 Mar. 2009
By J. R Sategna - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD hoping to get a full concert of the Butterfly. What I got was a concert but alot of images on the screen that disrupted the concert footage. When I see a concert, I don't like to see images over the players in the band trying to make the music groovy. With Iron Butterfly you just need to see all of the musicians all of the time--the music will take you there--not image processing. I saw the Butterfly in the sixties and also on the same tour that this was filmed--In San Ramon, Calif at a night club restaurant. Doug Ingle was superb as well as Lee Dorman and Ron Bushy (definitely improved drummer) The guitar player was great--doing his own version of guitar solos with a blues touch. The added piano player was a nice addition to the band. But I still miss Eric Brahn--the great guitar player on the big hit--In Gadda Da Vidda --too bad he has passed away. Check him out on other Butterfly albums where he sings-not bad. This is still a must for Butterfly fans--a great concert and a great collectors album Interviews were great and worth looking at. Get this one--it is good but not great.!!!!

HASH(0x8aea2834) out of 5 stars Long in the tooth and cheaply done 17 Mar. 2009
By The Reverend - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to seeing it as I had read that this formation of the band included Doug Ingle, Lee Dorman and Ron Bushy, three of the original four who recorded the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida LP. However after viewing I was let down. This project appears to be cheaply done beginning with the title menu as it fails to list the song "Ezy Rider". The performance looks like it was filmed in a small German club. For some reason there are fades after each song-maybe to distract the viewer from the relatively light audience response (applause) to the songs. The audio mix is rather thin on the bottom end, which I found very disappointing as Lee Dorman is a very melodic bass player. There is good use of multi-camera angles but I found it disconcerting that many times the camera remains focused on band members who are not soloing or singing.
The band is rather long in the tooth-seeing Ron Bushy play drums in his "wife beater" tee shirt with sagging arms and a beer gut does much to dispel the magic. He does a more than adequate drum solo and Doug Ingle is in excellent voice but for some reason the band doesn't seem much energized and the songs are taken slower than their original counterparts. The concert is rather short at 62 minutes with no encores.
The only extra on the disc is 40 minutes of solo interviews but the editing here is atrocious. It jumps from one person to another (sometimes in mid-sentence) and there is no continuity. The first interview begins with Doug Ingle playing a song on an acoustic guitar but the last interview is Doug telling us the story about the song he is about to play (which we previously heard with no explanation.) And what the hell is Steve Howe doing in these interviews anyway?? Lee Dorman spends his interview speaking about the wonders of playing open air festivals in the `60s and then explains why they opted out of playing Woodstock due to the excessive hassle of getting a helicopter to the festival grounds. Ron Bushy talks about wanting to write and record new material and getting the music out to the fans. There are two "new songs" included in the selections and if they were indicative of the best that was being written it is no surprise that 12 years later there still is no new Iron Butterfly CD. Wait to get this as a used DVD. I wouldn't mind paying under $10 for it but that is the best recommendation I can give.

HASH(0x8ad8ab58) out of 5 stars Classic Rock 2 Aug. 2011

It was a good show & much more enjoyable than a lot of the acts out there now. Also, it was great to see the original lineup, except for the guitar player. However, he played well & fit right in. I saw Iron Butterfly live years ago & I found this quite "up to snuff".
