Lyrics :

I saw an old man sitting with his head in hands
His eyes reflected the wisdom of his life
His words painted a new world
And my thoughts just followed him
But when he stopped
Something inside tore me apart
And I can’t get it back my castle in the air

Little Free Rock was an English late 1960s psychedelic hard rock trio from Preston in Lancashire, England.

It featured Peter Illingworth (lead guitar and vocals) (born 21 July 1943, Inglewhite Road, Longridge, Lancashire) (formerly with David John and the Mood who recorded with Joe Meek), Paul Varley (drums) (later with Arrows) and Frank Newbold (bass and vocals). They began performing covers of The Who, The Creation (“Makin’ Time” appeared on their album) and Tomorrow, but were soon doing mainly their own compositions.

The band performed regularly at the Roundhouse Sunday Night Implosion events and had numerous residencies at the Marquee Club. As well as performing all over Belgium, continental trips included the Star-Club in Hamburg, the Essen Jazz and Blues Festival, and festivals in Frankfurt, San Tropez and Santa Margarita de la Costa in Italy.

They changed their name from Purple Haze to avoid confusion with the Jimi Hendrix single.

Peter Green (Fleetwood Mac) joined the band for a short period, but the recordings were never released.
