Fault Line / The Painter – Deep Purple

(Blackmore/Lord/Simper/Paice)

Recorded when we heard that we were going to be in L. A. at earthquake time. The drum track was recorded first (with organ) and then reversed.

(instrumental)

b) The Painter
(Blackmore/Lord/Evans/Simper/Paice)

This track was recorded live; no double tracking.
Painter
Come colour up my life
Oh painter
Come colour up my life
Take away the misery
Take away the strife

Writer
Make me up a play
Writer
Make the meaning gay
(For I don’t know who I am)
Just give me words to say

Singer
Let me sing a song
