Iron Butterfly Quotes
We were sitting around trying to make up group names for this new group that ended up being called Iron Butterfly. We wanted a melodic consciousness contained within the rock format. We worked to broaden the horizons and be able to engage the dynamics, the highs, the lows, the melodies, the sensitivity and all that stuff, but at the same time doing it via the vehicle of electronic sound. It's mentioned on the "Vida" album that we wanted something light and heavy and versatile and colorful, so that's pretty much what we come up with. Insects were in at the time, what with The Beatles and what not. (Laughs)
The most recognizable songs as far as the fan base population would be the song on the flip side of "Vida" for obvious reasons. They bought "Vida" and happened to hear the other side, and "Ball", which was an album that more or less rode the tidal wave of "Vida," as far as peaked interest levels.
