Most all of mine have a nice patina. But I would like to see them looking a bit better and protected from the corrosion.

Almost all of mine are wearing their work clothes. We have restored a couple of the bigger tractors over the years, one of which is a tractor I use and play with a lot so there aren't any sacred cows.

Someday, there are about 4 more restorations I want to do. I hope there is enough in me to get them finished.

Mine too are all workers.

We gave them all a WD-40 rub-down this fall, so the red iron oxide (rust) shold be slowed down some!

This was written by Doug Ingle, Iron Butterfly's vocalist and keyboard player. His father was a church organist.
  • The title was supposed to be "In The Garden Of Eden." Someone had written "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," possibly while drunk, on a demo copy. A record company executive saw it and decided to use it as the title, since it sounded mystical and Eastern spirituality was big at the time, with The Beatles going to India and The Rolling Stones experimenting with Indian instruments.
  • Doug Ingle did not intend it this way when he wrote the song, but he album version is over 17 minutes long. The single was edited for radio.
  • Ron Bushy's drum solo is not as long as people think; it only runs about 2 1/2 minutes, from 6.30 to a little past 9 minutes. Doug Ingle's organ solo immediately follows. (thanks, James - Tracy, CA, for above 2)
  • The band's original guitar player quit before this was recorded. He was replaced by Eric Braun, who had only played the guitar for 3 months.
  • The title loosely translates as "In The Garden Of Life."
  • This was the first hit song that could be classified as "Heavy Metal." The phrase was introduced that year in the Steppenwolf song "Born To Be Wild."
  • Iron Butterfly would have performed this at Woodstock, but they didn't make it because they were stuck at the airport.
