This ballad was recorded in December 1971, during the Machine Head
sessions. Since it was not in the taste of Ritchie Blackmore, it only ended up as a B-side, on the single "Never Before," released on March 18, 1972. Moreover, the song was never performed live in his presence, but only when others were replacing him:
- On April 6, 1972 in Quebec with Randy California (Blackmore was sick).
- In November 1993 with Joe Satriani
(this was during The Battle Rages On tour).
- On many occasions since the '90s: Osaka and Yokohama Japan (1993), Sunrise, Florida (1995), Paris, France (1996, at the Olympia), Rotterdam, The Netherlands (2000, at the Ahoy).
