High Ball Shooter

Album: Stormbringer (1974)

Songfacts®:

  • You're a high ball shooter...
    You sure ripped the low ones off me


    Can this have really been penned by the same group that gave the world "Anthem," "April" and "Child In Time"? Yes and no. Deep Purple Mark III was a retrograde step, even though it produced a handful of classic tracks like "Burn." David Coverdale soon departed to found Whitesnake, a band more in keeping with his character, writing such songs "Slide It In."
  • Group composition "High Ball Shooter" runs to 4 minutes 26 seconds and is the seventh track on the 1974 Stormbringer album. >>
