Not much of a Vanilla Fudge fan, but Iron Butterfly is basically one 17 minute jam.

Not only that, but Iron Butterfly were a one-hit/jam wonder.

Re: Iron Butterfly versus Vanilla Fudge!

But Iron Butterfly's one hit was better than Vanilla Fudge's entire discography.

Exclamation Re: Iron Butterfly versus Vanilla Fudge!

Interesting though that my very old school father just listened and watched with nary a sneer when he heard this one on the Ed Sullivan Show back in 1969:

Exclamation Re: Iron Butterfly versus Vanilla Fudge!

Iron Butterfly were a one hit wonder, and I didn't even like it!

Nor did I like Vanilla Fudge's breakthrough single You Keep Me Hangin' On. But Vanilla Fudge's performance of Some Velvet Morning on the Ed Sullivan Show was a real eye and ear opener for me.

How many hits did Vanilla Fudge have? Other than the cover of You Keep Me Hangin' On, I can't name a Vanilla Fudge song.

Come to think of it, other than In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, I can't name an Iron Butterfly song either. Since I like Iron Butterfly's hit more than Vanilla Fudge's hit, that's how I voted.

Re: Iron Butterfly versus Vanilla Fudge!

This was written by Doug Ingle, Iron Butterfly's vocalist and keyboard player. His father was a church organist.
The title was supposed to be "In The Garden Of Eden." Someone had written "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," possibly while drunk, on a demo copy. A record company executive saw it and decided to use it as the title, since it sounded mystical and Eastern spirituality was big at the time, with The Beatles going to India and The Rolling Stones experimenting with Indian instruments.
Doug Ingle did not intend it this way when he wrote the song, but he album version is over 17 minutes long. The single was edited for radio.
Ron Bushy's drum solo is not as long as people think; it only runs about 2 1/2 minutes, from 6.30 to a little past 9 minutes. Doug Ingle's organ solo immediately follows.
The band's original guitar player quit before this was recorded. He was replaced by Eric Braun, who had only played the guitar for 3 months.
The title loosely translates as "In The Garden Of Life."
This was the first hit song that could be classified as "Heavy Metal." The phrase was introduced that year in the Steppenwolf song "Born To Be Wild."
Iron Butterfly would have performed this at Woodstock, but they didn't make it because they were stuck at the airport.

Season of the Witch got a lot of airplay on progressive rock radio programs in the late 1960's. It was their rendition of Some Velvet Morning though that really caused me to sit up and take notice of Vanilla Fudge.

Re: Iron Butterfly versus Vanilla Fudge!

I like both bands....have all of their earlier lp's....but going with Butterfly due to a later lp called Metamorphosis...an overlooked gem imho.
The Fudge were actually better when they evolved into Cactus imho.
