Butterfly Ball And the Grasshopper's Feast

Sold out

After an extensive campaign of expanded reissues from the resurrected Purple Records by Deep Purple's Jon Lord and from Glenn Hughes, Silverhead, Elf and Hard Stuff, Cherry Red are proud to announce the new 2 LP edition of The Butterfly Ball And The Grasshopper's Feast, expanded to a double album for the first time. After leaving Purple in 1973, Roger Glover was asked to compose music to the illustrated book of the same name by William Plomer and Alan Aldridge. His first major project since leaving Purple, Roger was able to enlist many top names to help him realise his vision, including Glenn Hughes, who was then in Deep Purple, as well as Elf's Micky Lee Soule and Ronnie James Dio. As well as the remastered original album, it now features a second LP that includes demos and alternative mixes, the non-album single 'Little Chalk Blue' featuring future Uriah Heep singer John Lawton, plus excerpts from the rare Butterfly Ball Radio Special; a 1974 promo only release where the album's creator and producer, Roger Glover, discusses and explains the story behind the creation of this project.
