The tune of today, was first released 1970 on a singlethen later on the album "In Rock". "Black Night" made its way into the setlist soon after release, generally as the first encore. The song was not played in full after Ian Gillan and Roger Glover left the band in 1973, but snippets were often played by Ritchie Blackmore as part of his improvisations. On the reformation of Deep Purple in 1984 "Black Night" returned as part of the main set list. There are many versions of the song available on Deep Purple live albums.

Ladys and Gents is Deep Purple!

Cheers, Thetania
