No Time To Lose

Album: Down To Earth (1979)

Songfacts®:

  • Written by Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover, this song from the 1979 Down To Earth album is not to be confused with the much later song of the same name by Madison McFerrin. In an interview published in the December 15, 1979 issue of Sounds, Blackmore said "No Time To Lose" was "rubbish." Fans tended to disagree.
  • The vocalist on this track and album was Graham Bonnet, who was replaced by Joe Lynn Turner the following year. >>
