Iron Butterfly 1967 Contract Collage signed by 5 - Epperson LOA - RARE

Regular price $1,695

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This truly one-of-a-kind framed Iron Butterfly collage features an Mar. 15, 1967 contract rider signed by their 1966-67 line up:  Doug Ingle (organ, vocals), Danny Weis (guitar), Darryl DeLoach (tambourine, vocals), Jerry Penrod (bass, backing vocals) and Ron Bushy (drums, percussion).

The collage also features a matted in 45 vinyl copy of Iron Butterfly's classic 1968 hit "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" and a metal name plate. As written by Dave Thompson in the liner notes for the 1967 album Iron Butterfly: Live at the Galaxy 1967, Doug Ingle reportedly wrote the song while drinking a gallon of "Red Mountain" wine. Then when the drunken Ingle played the song for Bushy, who was writing down the lyrics, Ingle was slurring his words and what he was singing as (he thought) "in the Garden of Eden" was interpreted by Bushy as "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida".

The signatures on the contract rider have been authenticated by Roger Epperson (REAL). The entire contract has been mounted using acid-free mounts and can be removed from the collage if desired. 

This is an excellent piece of Iron Butterfly history with the very rare feature of having all five original group member's signatures from the 1966-67 period. Also, remember Ron Bushy (1941-2021) and Darryl Deloach (1947-2002) with this collage.

Don't be fooled by other Iron Butterfly "signed" items on the Internet or in stores. Ask to see a COA/LOA from top authenticators like JSA (James Spence Authentication), PSA/DNA, Beckett or REAL (Epperson). You'll find that most sellers won't be able to provide this.
