Butterfly Ball DVD


Just got this from a Yahoo group. No links to confirm it:

"Music Video Distributors and Film Chest have announced
the home viewing release of "The Butterfly Ball" for
North American distribution on DVD.

In 1973, Jonathan Cape Ltd. published a children's
book called "The Butterfly Ball and Grasshopper's
Feast". It contained a collection of poems by William
Plomer, lavishly and intricately illustrated with 28
color plates by Alan Aldridge, an artist who had
produced THE BEATLES Illustrated Lyrics. The
inspiration for the work came from a poem "The
Butterfly Ball and Grasshoppers Feast" by William
Roscoe published in November 1806.

The book then prompted this jubilant live production
of "The Butterfly Ball" that took place at the Royal
Albert Hall on October 16, 1975. It was produced and
directed by Tony Klinger, who later produced the
critically acclaimed story of THE WHO, "The Kids are
Alright". This performance of "The Butterfly Ball",
magically narrated by Vincent Price, was a benefit for
Bud Flanagan's Leukemia Fund and Action Research for
the Crippled Child. Roger Glover, who at the time had
just departed from DEEP PURPLE and was embarking on a
career in producing music, was able to get most of the
artists who had taken part in the studio recordings to
perform.

Featuring:

Ian Gillan
Twiggy
Tony Ashton
Helen Chapelle
David Coverdale
John Gustafson
Eddie Hardin
Glenn Hughes
Earl Jordan
Judi Kuhl
Neil Lancaster
John Lawton
Mickey Lee Soule
Al Matthews
Barry St. John
Liza Strike
John Lord

"The Butterfly Ball" is scheduled for release on March 14. "
