Annotation

It is a conceptual album, with great musicians. A very well inspired rock opera based on a child book with similar tittle. Besides it is a Roger Glover's solo carrer, however, could be easily a Deep Purple record. Again, it had a star-studded cast of rock musicians (Dio, Jon Lord, Tony Ashton, Glenn Hughes, Eddie Hardin, Ray Fenwick, John Lawton, Helen Chapelle, Barry St John, Liza Strike, Roger Glover itself and many others). A delightful sound experience.
