One More Rainy Day

Album: Shades Of Deep Purple (1968)

Songfacts®:

  • According to Michael Heatley in The Complete Deep Purple, the storm effects on this track were lifted from a BBC sound effects album; said to be the last song recorded for the band's 1968 debut, he adds rather unkindly that it "Still sounds rather like an advertising theme."
  • "One More Rainy Day" is the third track on the Shades Of... album, and was co-written by keyboard wizard Jon Lord and the band's first lead vocalist Rod Evans. >>
