    According to Purple's Gillian: "Jon Lord was dicking around (or 'extemporising on a theme' as it's known in the trade) with a tune from the new album by 'It's a Beautiful Day', it was 'Bombay Calling'. I started singing...", but it's become a quite different song. Child in Time is a ten-minute musical orgasm with actual lyrics, so there was some creative effort involved. Incidentally, reinderd, what does "all of their best stuff" mean, what else?

    Here's some trivia for you: Don & Dewey was a tribute to Don Sugarcane Harris (who did the Hot Rats album for Zappa among a great number of other things, and his partner Dewey Harris. The violin on It's A Beautiful Day on this track could never be as good as Sugarcane's but it was pretty damn good, great number surprised to see so few listen to this track.

    Deep Purple basically stole all of their best stuff and have acknowledged that. IABD stole back the tune and structure of Wring That Neck for Don and Dewey though.
