"Don't Look Down On Me" b/w "Possession" is a rare single recorded by Iron Butterfly between late 1967 and early 1968. The single was performed by the Heavy lineup. "Don't Look Down On Me" is a somewhat heavy song with an organ opening. It is sung lead by Darryl DeLoach with Doug Ingle on organ and backing vocals. It eventually leads into an organ solo. "Possession", which is on the flipside, is a different version than was released on Heavy and available on future releases. It is heavier in both its guitar and organ instrumentation than on future versions.
