Green Bullfrog

Green Bullfrog (1971)

  1. Bullfrog (Lawrence)
    Instrumental track actually written by Blackmore, but due to contractual difficulties the credits went to Lawrence. Compare this track with the DP's "Jam Stew/John Stew" - nearly identical.

  3. My baby left me (Crudup)
  4. Makin' time (Pickett/Philips)
  5. Lawdy Miss Clawdy (Price)
  6. I'm a free man (Klingman)
  7. Lovin' you is good for me baby (Lawrence/Corlett/Hutton)
  8. I want you (White)

Recorded during February 1970 [tracks 8 and 9] and April/May 1970 [the rest] at Kingsway Recorders in London; strings laid down during January 1971. Engineered by Martin Birch and produced by Derek Lawrence. The album was reissued a few times. In some interview Blackmore claimed that Glover had been there recording as well, but that ain't true. The entire thing was reissued on CD 1991 with three extra tracks.
