'Taurus' is the eighth and final movement on Jon Lord's 1970 album Gemini Suite. It consists primarily of an extended organ solo by Jon Lord, which was considered a highlight of the concert when the album was performed live. Deep Purple Mk II performed this song (later released as Gemini Suite Live in 1993), along with a later studio line-up which formed the basis of the official album recording.
