Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

In a 1975 radio interview with Ritchie Blackmore and Ronnie James Dio, the vocalist said he would allow Ritchie to explain this song, "but you'd get completely lost in his explanation, so I'll do it for you".

It is he said, a semi-religious song, the man on the silver mountain is a kind of God figure everyone is crying out to. "Man On The Silver Mountain" runs to 4 minutes 42 seconds, and was co-written by Dio and Blackmore. Like the rest of this Polydor label album it was recorded at Musicland Studios, Munich in early 1975. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
