You get a mention, Joe. (last verse)

I know a dark secluded place
A place where no one knows your face
A glass of wine, a fast embrace
It's called Hernando's Hideaway

Ole!
And all you'll see are silhouettes
And all you'll hear are castanets
And no one cares how late it gets
Not at Hernando's Hideaway

Ole!
At the Golden Fingerbowl or any place you go
You will meet your Uncle Max and everyone you know
But if you'll go the spot that I am thinkin' of

You will be free to gaze at me and talk of love
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
You're in Hernando's Hideaway

Ole!
Just knock three times and whisper low
That you and I were sent by Joe
Then strike a match and you will know
You're in Hernando's Hideaway

@tadpoles: They were both presenters - but Sandie was the barefoot one I think...But I got to read wigkey say:
...'While McGowan had answered an advert for 'a typical teenager' to work as an advisor, she found herself presenting the show. Her strength was that her status as a fan of the artists was evident in her style; stumbling over her lines, losing her cool and apparent inexperience only made her more popular, and by the end she was presenting the show alone. She may have been the inspiration for Susan Campy from the Beatles' 1964 film A Hard Day's Night, when George Harrison tells the producer of a fictitious teen television show that Campy is "... that posh bird who gets everything wrong", to which the producer played by Kenneth Haigh replies, "She's a trendsetter. It's her profession." '...

I'm not much of a metal fan, as regular listeners know, but this song has several redeeming features: There's that bolero part, the part where it boogies (just begun), and then there's the stolen riff. :)

We had this Deep Purple live album. It was a double. And I think it had a total of about 7 songs - 2 each on three sides and 1 more taking up the last...

@Tyler: Don't tell them we have it! @Guido: ha ha ha! Purple is worse than Zeppelin with the sticky fingers.

Brendan:

Ian Gillan has said that "Child in Time" is based on It's a Beautiful Day's psychedelic song "Bombay Calling".[1] It's a Beautiful Day in return borrowed Purple's "Wring That Neck" and turned it into "Don and Dewey" on their second album Marrying Maiden (1970). ~Wiki

Purple always had pretenses of Classical influence - BaroquePsych & then Prog...Make mine the related CaptainBeyond for ProgMetal - who picked up loose members from both U.S. & UK bands...

I never listened to the lyrics before. Is this an anti-war song?

...they were very early as Metal bands go. This thing of a HardRawk period then that wasn't all Metal yet is talked about these days...

When did Metal first get coined? Early Deep Purple was always just called "Hard Rock" ... loved it.

Steppenwolf's "Heavy Metal Thunder" was an early reference, I would think.
