Deep Purple's 1970 original BBC Promo Clip for the smash hit single 'Black Night' introduced by Jon Lord.

"Black Night" is a song by British hard rock band Deep Purple, first released as a single in June 1970 and later included on the 25th Year Anniversary version of their 1970 album, In Rock. The song became a hit following its release, peaking at #2 on UK charts, and to this day remains Deep Purple's highest charting UK single. It was also the first single penned by the band. 

Once In Rock had been completed, EMI asked for a suitable single to be recorded to help promote the album. Though Roger Glover claims that Ricky Nelson's 1962 hard rocking arrangement of the George Gershwin classic "Summertime" was the basis for the Mk II Deep Purple single "Black Night", it is more similar to Blues Magoos's 1966 psychedelic hit song "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" with Ian Gillan matching it vocally. 

"Black Night" made its way into the setlist soon after release, generally as the first encore. The song was not played in full after Ian Gillan and Roger Glover left the band in 1973, but snippets were often played by Ritchie Blackmore as part of his improvisations. On the reformation of Deep Purple in 1984 "Black Night" returned as part of the main set list. There are many versions of the song available on Deep Purple live albums.
