Iron Butterfly was a band that was SO SO far ahead of its time it kinda hurt them in a way.
On September 7, 1968, Iron Butterfly's second effort entered the charts with what was to become its signature album, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". The 17-minute title track of that album was one of the pioneer songs that spurned the popularity of extended jams in progressive rock. The album became a multi-million-seller and was for a number of years the biggest-selling item in Atlantic Records' catalog. The album also became the record industry's first platinum disc, selling over 4 million copies. Lead Guitarist Eric Braunn left the band the following year and was replaced with Mike Pinera, and Larry Reinhart but they just never found the long term super stardom or credit for their innovation that bands like the Doors, and Jefferson Airplane got.
