Wynder K Frog - Excellant,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SUNSHINE SUPER FROG (Audio CD)
Wynder K Frog has always been one of my favourite Instrumental artistes from the period, and would often hear Green Door (not on this album) or Dancin Frog, I Feel So Bad at the club weekends away. I already have vinyl copies of the two USA albums (Out Of The Fying Pan and Into The Fire) and although great albums, always wanted to hear the earlier stuff.
Everyone who knows Wynder's back catologue will know the club sounds of Im a Man, Somebody Help Me and the fantastic Incense, all of which are superb instrumentals. The reason for me buying this album (overpriced for what it is ) was I wanted to hear the tracks I hadnt heard or didnt already have, like Hold on Im comin, Shook, Shimmy and Shake and Dont Fight It, all of which were new tracks to me, and all excellent. If you like your organ to be a bit like Touusaint McCall (in your face like - loud and rasping) then this album is a must buy (noticed on Ebay this week June 2011, a vinyl copy is up for bids of £175 not sure if this is the real rarity value, but, makes £13.00 seem reasonable ) I agree with other reviews, more could have been put on the CD to give better value (especially the first single).
The one track I wasnt expecting too much from was one of those tracks you think oh dear , why do this!!! But it is as good as the other tracks (not better but as good)and that was Fats Domino's "Walking To New Orleans" which starts off like the original and then has a massive Organ wig out. Just great.
If your into Instrumentals with the Organ vibe, or just like belting R&B Organ, then this a must, although more expensive than normal, for me it completes my Wynder collection (nearly).
I had to go on Wikipedia to find the actual track listing - here it is (assuming all CD copies on Walhalla are the same) :-
1)Sunshine Superman 2)I Feel So Bad 3)Oh Mary 4)Blues For A Frog 5)Somebody Help Me 6)Mercy 7)Hold On Im Comin 8)Shook Shimy And Shake 9)Incense 10) Walking to New Orleans 11) Dont Fight It (Feel It) 12)Dancin Frog 13) Im A Man
Absolutely reccommend this if you can get it, and if you are like me and cant afford the £175 price tag for the original, go for the cheaper option:)
