Roger Glover and the Butterfly Ball - Love is All, John Halas & Joy Batchelor,1976

A piece of music from a rock opera by Roger Glover of Deep Purple, based on the poem The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast by William Roscoe. This short was intended to be part of a longer film.

Yes, that is Ronnie James Dio singing.

  1. This short was made a few years earlier from what I gather (1974). They basically wanted to produce an animated film in this style but I guess they didn't have the money to do so, and eventually a different film was produced instead incorporating this footage in it.
