This is part of a bootleg called "Rehearsals, Demos, Radio, Live" posted many years ago here on DIME.
DIME rules do not allow to post entire series of discs in a sole post unless the integrity of said post depends of these discs being shared together.
With the "Rehearsals, Demos, Radio, Live" collection is not the case, as each disc is different from others and doesn't affect at all if they are shared sepparately.
The original files were in SHN, all i did was to convert these to flac (enconding 8) as it is the most popular lossless source and the easiest one to play.
And firstly, I KNOW the info file said to keep the integrithy of the files, but let's be honest, shn in these days is an almost defunct format, so why not make it easier for the people?
If the person that posted this many years ago reads this, please understand why i changed the format.
Secondly, i found the artwork in other sites (my files didn't have artwork) so in case anyone has the original files, the artwork won't match and that's the reason.
Please consider this is disc number 1 only. If the other ones are allowed, i might post them in the future...
The info file (below) has been modified to reflect the changes made to the files (mostly, in the lineage)


Some of this 7 CD-r release is sourced from cassette tapes I got in trade many years ago. Some of it is sourced from cassette tapes that a friend of mine found in an estate sale. He said that almost everything at the estate sale had been sold when he spotted about 10 cassettes with hand written labels. At first he thought they were nothing special until he started reading the notes. Apparently nobody else had noticed that these were something very special since they were still there. He knew right away and got them for me. There are a lot of rare short pieces as well as some rare rehearsals and concerts.

When I started this project, I hadn't planned on making it a 7 disc release. After working on it for a while I realized that it worked better as multi disc release. Iron Butterfly has
been through so many personnel changes it is really hard to keep track of it all. I started with a live show that represented an Iron Butterfly personnel lineup that is about as far removed from what I considered to be ideal as it ever got. The last live show I included in this collection is a soundboard recording from Toronto in 1988. This show is by the reformed Iron Butterfly which consisted of Ingle - Braunn - Bushy - Dorman, the same lineup as the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida era Iron Butterfly.
