 I don't know where you can get your copy, John, but I got mine in 1980 on the "New, Live + Rare Vol. III" ep. emoticon

Re: Who loves Hallelujah?


A little "Hallelujah History" :

 Not really a cover as I am not aware of anyone else ever recording this track before Deep Purple, but it was not written by the group. It was, in fact, composed by that famous song-writing team of Roger Cook and Roger [sign in to see URL] very Tin Pan Alley rather than New York's Brill Building. They later came up with Coca Cola's "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" and, of course, Episode Six had done their "Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart" at the BBC on 3rd June 1969, only the day before E6's fateful Woodford Green gig. - Nigel Young, March 1999

 There's a version by the Derek Lawrence Statement on The "Derek Lawrence Sessions Take 1" CD on Line Records (LICD [sign in to see URL], 1991). Very confusingly, I have another version by a group called People on a German 7" single, where the song is credited to Cy Payne/Reg Guest, yet the publishing credit says "Cookaway Music", suggesting that it was written by Cook/Greenaway. It's on Vogue records, DV 11138, 1970 and there's no mention of a producer. - Stathis N. Panagiotopoulos, March 1999

 Recorded at the very first Mark II session at De Lane Lea Studios in Kingsway, London on the 7 June 1969. Roger Glover played as a session musician on this track as he had not yet officially joined the band. The Mark I group still played gigs during June and July after this first Mark II session. Released as a single in July 1969 (backed by the Mark I track, "April part 1" ), but failed to make a dent in the charts.
 Never (?) played live in concert... - fromThe Highway Star's excellent Discography/Song List section.

Q: Do you remember if you produced a version of Hallelujah with Evans and Simper taking part, before Gillan and Glover did their version? How did you learn about the line-up changes?

A: No I didn't do a version with any Purple line-up, Roger Greenaway sent it to me as a demo and I said I couldn't see Purple doing it but I passed it on to Ritchie anyway. I went on and recorded it later with my own group for Bell Records in the States. - Derek Lawrence, May 2003 from 'The Derek Lawrence Interview' on the Deep Purple Appreciation Society website.

It's a good song, but that's it.

A very 'hippy' song!

Half of what you've attributed to me there Ed was actually written by someone else. Instead of the cutting and pasting, why not just say there's some interesting info or quotes at [sign in to see URL]#hall and [sign in to see URL]?

 Because 'cutting + pasting' is a skill I finally have down pat, Nigel. I'm still working on the 'inserting links' thing. emoticon
 As a matter of interest, which half wasn't written by you, Nigel? Would I be correct in presuming the half not written by you was done by one of the THS 's editorial staff?
 Sudden thought - even with a 'link insertion', wouldn't the half you didn't write still appear to a reader as if you had written it? emoticon

I like this song a lot too, has a funny Beat Club clip to go along with it. I don't think it's Gillan trying to sound like Evans actually, but more like Gillan still mentally in Episode Six. -He could be quite a crooner when he wanted to, who knows where he would've been had he not gone to Purple. A new young Tom Jones, perhaps. emoticon

Re: Who loves Hallelujah?


Yeah I really like this song. It's a sort of transition between the MKI&II bands and has elements of both.

One major thing I noticed about it is Gillan's very first scream as Deep Purple singer. It actually overloads the mic which you can clearly hear. Obviously the engineer had set his mic up for a softer vocal and Ian's scream wasn't part of the plan. But the later scream is much more balanced in the mix.

The only thing I don't like about the song is the faster, folkier part which I think takes away from the rest of the track.

I don't. I wish MkII had chosen something else as their first recording.
