Child in Time is a composition by the British hard rock band Deep Purple and submitted by the Deep Purple in Rock album from 1970. The composition is strongly based on the song "Bombay Calling ' by the band it's A Beautiful Day from 1968.

A live performance of Child in Time appeared some time later, in 1972, on the live album Made in Japan. In this song is the singer Ian Gillan at best. Here he demonstrates a huge vocal range and volume. The heavy vocal part is interspersed with a driving guitar solo by Ritchie Blackmore.

It is one of their longest songs, namely more than 10 minutes. It is known by the quiet, sensual intro on the hammond organ by Jon Lord, and Ian Gillans voice increscendo slowly, getting louder and louder, in full scream rings. Next comes the guitar solo in, supported by pounding drums, bass and organ, which takes six minutes, before it abruptly breaks down and the whole composition again begins (da capo).

Deep Purple plays little or no more Child in Time during their concerts. The band can find the number dated since it is about the cold war , but also the number would no longer handle Gillans voice. [source?]
