Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Black Country, the debut album by Black Country Communion. They are an Anglo/American rock group featuring vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa.
  • This song was originally recorded by Hughes' band Trapeze in 1970. He explained to Norway's Metal Express Radio why BCC decided to rework the track for Black Country. "It's very simple really. Joe loves the track, Jason's father John, played that track twenty times with me back in 1970 on tour with Trapeze. John and I used to hang out a lot back in those days and he used to drive me to gigs. Now I'm playing this song nearly 40 years later with his son so it's special. It's a beautiful thing and Jason Bonham plays it insanely brilliantly. I've now played that song with both Bonhams, it's crazy."
