Redondo Beach 1995 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Strand, Redondo Beach, CA; April 25, 1995. Very good to excellent audience recording?

Lest we forget… Over the years, Iron Butterfly have gone through many lineup changes and 2012 is a particularly painful year for the band and fans of the group, which is bookended by deaths. Former guitarist Larry “Rhino” Reinhardt died on January 2, 2012, at the age of 63, due to cirrhosis of the liver; and bassist Lee Dorman, who had a history of heart trouble, died on December 21, 2012, at the age of 70.

This is one of those gigs at a time when original vocalist Doug Ingle was back with the group.

  2. Thanks for this BigO. I have plenty of Butterfly boots from the 60s,70s,80s and 00s but I had nothing from the 90s. And of course it’s always basically the same songs but I like ‘em.
    So thanks.

  5. interestingly the kennedy center honors recorded on the 1st was aired last nite with tributes to zep and buddy guy. why interestingly? well zep came to the usa in 68.. their first show coincidentally was 44 years ago the other day in fact.. and at some of their first shows they opened up for iron butterfly. ib werent very happy when zep blew them off the stage of course and quickly put an end to this double bill.
    the 4 songs aired included lenny kravitz.. heart leaders ann and nancy with jason bonham.. kid rock and the foo fighters. all of these clips are easily found on youtube. in fact look carefully and u can find the 21 minute clip of the entire zep segment hosted by jack black including his mini bio and induction with superb film clips.
    the other material related to buddy guy isnt important to note here since it has nothing to do with zep but 3 songs were played in his honor. they werent the ones honored.
    gary clark jr was on hand on one song btw.. and if he has any fans here and im hoping he does.. tune in to conan obrien on the 8th.

  8. Wow!!! We were at this show!! Waaaay better than I was expecting. My wife always loved Iron Butterfly from when she was a wee lass. Doug Ingle sounded great, and Doug Bossey came off like Ritchie Blackmore (in a good way). Cheers and thanks for sharing!!
