On December 21st 2012 Lee Dorman was found dead in his car. RIP

This is part one of a 7CD set I got some time ago. I split it as the complete set is rather large. Below is the original Text for all 7 CDs

Iron Butterfly Rehearsals - Demos - Radio - Live (The Garden Of Life) (T-1469)

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.

Iron Butterfly Rehearsals - Demos - Radio - Live (The Garden Of Life) (T-1469)

I removed gaps and made speed corrections where needed .
Don't alter the sound of this recording. The T releases are not to be used as a source for anyones so called remastering projects. If you want to do something find a better source recording and work from that. Don't just take what I have done and screw with it.

For Trade or Give Away only - Do not Sell - Do not encode as MP3 or any other format which degrades the quality of the music.
