In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida has never sounded more transformative!
A pop-culture phenomenon and fuzz-guitar-driven classic!
Mastered from the original master tapes
Limited to 3,000 numbered copies pressed at RTI
Mobile Fidelity 180-gram LP places organ-drenched music on a grand soundstage!
Few songs are more instantly recognized — or more influential, infamous, and, yes, notorious — than Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." The anchor of the mind-trip of an album of the same name, it occupies an entire side of an LP and runs for 17 minutes and five seconds, both bold moves in 1968 that changed how artists approached music in the studio and how listeners experienced it at home. The California-based group's sophomore record also blew open the possibilities associated with psychedelia, heavy arrangements, and suggested meanings. And with apologies to those who might've heard it in a chemical haze in the late 1960s, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida has never sounded more transformative than it does now.
Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 numbered copies, Mobile Fidelity's 180-gram vinyl LP places the work's organ-drenched melodies, acid-rock scope, mind-warping effects, and cauldron-bubbling rhythms on a soundstage as massive as the concert stage depicted on the album cover. Speaking of the latter, Mobile Fidelity's faithful-to-the-original graphics and first-rate reproductions of the lava-lamp-ready colors are as close as you're going to get to seeing the famous artwork in pristine form lest you come across a copy untouched by five decades of aging. (Good luck.)
