Come take up your Hats, and away let us haste/ To the Butterfly's Ball, and the Grasshopper's Feast

One might think that a 19th century poem by a British historian and abolitionist (and a 1973 best-selling children's book) would be strange source material for a progish concept album by then recently-departed from Deep Purple's Roger Glover.

Even stranger would be the decision to film a one-off live performance (with Glover, Vincent Price, Twiggy, Ian Gillan, et al.) with in some live action filmed bits with actors in poorly-made animal costumes and animation thrown in.

The 1976 film was directed, produced and co-written by Tony Klinger (producer of The Kids Are Alright and director of Deep Purple Rises Over Japan).
