That record made a big impression on me 40 years ago.

As much as I enjoyed that song, it was even better when Bart Simpson slipped it into the church as “In The Garden Of Eden” and had them sing and play it for an exhausting 17 minutes.

I lifted up a lighter in memory. Good music, good days.

Full 17 minute B&W concert video, 1968.

THAT was acid rock! Yeah, baby!

Would be more newsworthy if it were the drummer.

That was the first album I ever bought. My mom was not impressed.

Remember seeing them at Freedom Hall in Louisville, KY back in the early seventies. Awesome show. It was their Metamorphosis Tour. The album had just been released and they were touring to promote it. Great album and of course they did all the old tunes. Guess what the last number was?

Back in my younger days the 17 minute version of Inna Gadda Davida was my favorite table dance song at the Great Alaska Bush Company in Anchorage... IF the dancer was one of the better ones, that is.

The number one song of all time is MUSKRAT LOVE.

“Nibblin’ on bacon and chewin’ on cheese”

And what can compare to the synthesizer putting out those muskrat squeaks?

If Darrel Dragon had been stoned, it would have come out as MUSH HAT GLOVE and sold ten million copies.

Don't forget the original bassist for Iron Butterfly, Philip Taylor Kramer - who after he left the band got a night degree in engineering and worked on the MX missile guidance systems, cutting-edge video compression technology, and - some claim - "faster-than-light communications" and a fascimile of the "Star Trek Transformer".

He disappeared when meeting an "investor" at LAX and his remains were found 4 years later near Malibu. Some think he was killed by a competitor or the Russians. The gov't called his death a "suicide".

DETAILS

Not a big rock fan myself, but, yes, once upon a time, way back when (and for quite a long while, too) you literally could NOT go anywhere in America without hearing this song coming out of a radio or loudspeaker.

An American rock icon checks out.

Not a bad song but got more airplay than it would have due to it’s length. DJs said that they would use the song to go on bathroom breaks, especially if the radio station didn’t have one, get fast food, and do other things they didn’t want interrupted for a while ;)
