  • Running to 4 minutes 5 seconds, "Listen, Learn, Read On" is the title track of the second Deep Purple album, The Book Of Taliesyn. Co-written by all the band - except bass player Nic Simper - it kicks off the album with a psychedelic/mystical journey into Welsh mythology.

    Llyfr Taliesin is a famous historical manuscript held by the National Library of Wales; it contains some of the oldest poems in Welsh, many of them attributed to the 6th Century poet Taliesin. >>
