Record label of Australian release:
After Roger Glover left Deep Purple, he produced the concept album The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper’s Feast, with musicians like Glenn Hughes, David Coverdale, John Lawton and Ronnie James Dio. It is based on William Plomer and Alan Aldridge’s picture book The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper’s Feast (1973), in itself based on the eponymous poem by British historian William Roscoe (1802).
Eddie Hardin wrote the song Love Is All based on a song featured in The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper’s Feast named Love’s all you need, which was inspired by The Beatles’ song All You Need Is Love (1967). The song was sung by Ronnie James Dio, although the single was credited to Glover.
