"Child In Time" was originally a track from the album "Deep Purple In Rock" (1970). It became a favourite among rock fans all over the world, and in 1972, the track was the highest newcomer (#4) in the Dutch "Top 100 Allertijden". This is a chart compiled by Dutch music fans who sent their favourite Top 10 of songs of at least one year of age and only one song per artist.

As a result, the track was released as a single, albeit without the band's consent. As the original composition ran more than 10 minutes, did not fit on a 45 RPM single and editing down was out of the question, it was decided to split the song in two and put part 1 on side A and part 2 on side B. The edit was made at 6:09, right before the song's reprise. Additionally, the single was sold in the Dutch EMI company sleeve in various colours.

The single entered the Dutch Top 40 on July 8th, 1972, made it to #10 and had a chart run of 12 weeks. It also boosted the album sales, causing "Deep Purple In Rock" to do another chart run of 19 weeks in the Dutch Album Chart, starting at August 12th, 1972 and peaking at #7.
