Live is the first live album by Iron Butterfly, released in 1970. The last album to be recorded with the longstanding quartet of Brann, Bushy, Dorman, and Ingle, it is the only Iron Butterfly album which does not feature more than one lead vocalist. It was a commercial hit, reaching #20 on the Billboard album charts.[1]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic rated Live three out of five stars. He called the album "a dull document of Iron Butterfly's thundering live show," and declared the live rendition of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" to be "three times as tedious" as the original version.[2]
