Format: Audio CD
A lot has been written about who appeared on the Green Bullfrog album - particularly which members of Deep Purple played. This album not only gives the definitive answers, but presents a fabulous re-mastering AND adds extra tracks. What more could you ask for?
For those of you unfamiliar with the Green Bullfrog thing, its a guitar-hero album of reasonably familiar covers that comes from a couple of informal sessions in 1970. Originally released in 1971 with almost no publicity and with no reference to the artists real names (for contractual reasons) it sank without trace. Later of course, it became much sought-after and surrounded by rumour and mythology - often not helped by the vague and only partially accurate press recollections of key players. The most famous people on it depend on your perspective. Rockers will say Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Paice, while country pickers will argue for Albert Lee. Whichever way you see it, nobody hogs the limelight - at least no more than your average guitar hero - and it all comes together to make a great album. 'Bullfrog' is a slice of instrumental Purple, while 'Louisiana Man' is southern blues at its best. There's funk in there too, a little country, more blues and even some (admittedly heavy) pop leanings in 'Makin' Time'.
Buy this for lots of reasons. It has good songs. Its been cleaned up to a very high standard. Its a slice of history, featuring people you know well. And its unbelievable good value!

Funky, gritty...what more do ya want? 9 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record growls, prances, grinds its gears from track to track, and makes me feel GOOD inside! This is what R&B is SUPPOSED to be, folks--none of that smarmy easy-listening junk that goes by that name today, no sir. Just a combination of soulful vocals, gritty, funky, ecstatic guitar work, and rhythm, rhythm, RHYTYM! I'm glad this recording is finally available on CD--my old vinyl copy has been around the turntable a few times too many, and the I was afraid I'd never find a digital replacement. My recommendation--If you're a fan of rockin' rhythm & blues (like, say, Delbert McClinton at his roadhouse finest), you've gotta listen to Green Bullfrog.

CD has new mixes 5 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great collection of ripping blues songs by members of Deep Purple and friends. However, this CD has all new mixes of the songs. I actually prefer the mixes that were on the original vinyl release, and wish they included the old mixes along with the new mixes on this CD.
Have to give this CD 3 stars, for not including the original mixes of the songs.
