Dana Dawson skillfully balanced a musical career with work as an actor. Making her theatrical debut at the age of seven with a national touring production of Annie, she joined the national tour of Rent in October 2000. She continued to perform in the musical show when it made its Broadway premiere in August 2001. Dawson was equally successful as a vocalist, releasing her debut album, Paris, New York and Me, in 1991. Her second album, Black Butterfly, released during the summer of 1996, included the dance hit "3 Is Family." Released in England, her 2001 single, "Nice Life," was featured on the soundtrack of the Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire.

This grainy live recording captures psychedelic wrecking crew Iron Butterfly in a particularly sharp club performance from early in their career. Still months away from the release of their 1968 debut Heavy, Live at the Galaxy captures the band in their earliest, roughest form, working out songs heavy on organ stabs and blues riffing. The bootleg quality of the album is on par with other obscure, audience-recorded artifacts of its era by psych bands like the Electric Prunes and others, but the band transcends the lo-fi cloudiness of the album with spirited jamming that all but wrote the acid rock rule book, especially on high points such as "Iron Butterfly Theme."
