The Outlaws / Ritchie Blackmore Orchestra / The Lancasters
Ritchie Blackmore (gtr); Chas Hodges (bss); Nicky Hopkins (pno); Reg Price (sxp); Mick Underwood (drm).
Again at the initiative of Derek Lawrence, Blackmore and Co. were asked to tape a few singles for the US market. As the Outlaws, they provided some backing for a girl trio called the Murmaids, and as The Lancasters, they recorded a cover of Edvard Grieg's "In The Hall Of The Mountain King". As the Outlaws, they also recorded a single called "Getaway", which was issued in Europe with the label stating Ritchie Blackmore Orchestra.
