Bullfrog biography
BULLFROG were born in Munich in 1973. Their brand of krautrock, featuring mostly guitar and some mean organ play, is rather melodious and a bit reminiscent of German art rockers JANE. Their latest incarnation consisted of keyboardist Harald Kaltenecker, guitarist Sebastian Leitner, bassist Vincent Trost, drummer Ali Halmatoglu and vocalist Gerd Hoch (who committed suicide in the summer of '95).

Their first (eponymous) album didn't break any grounds but their second, "High in Spirit" ('77) boasted a much better production and thus brought the band a sizeable following both in Germany and in the US. It also gathered quite a huge fan base in Portugal where the album managed to relegate both ABBA and PINK FLOYD to second and third place on the local charts. Encouraged by the warm reception, they toured a great deal and finally released a third LP in 1980, "Second Wind", their most accomplished work to date. They were gathering material for a fourth when dissension grew amongst the ranks and brought an end to their reunion.

Interesting material but not essential. Recommended strictly for collectors of early krautrock.

High in Spirit
Bullfrog Krautrock

Review by presdoug

4 stars This is the only Bullfrog album i have ever heard, so i cannot make comparisons with their other work, but i was pleasantly impressed with this record. A blurb in the book "The Crack In The Cosmic Egg" says the band at this point was Cologne, Germany based, though they are labeled a Munich band in the PA bio.

This band is not what i would call krautrock, but closer to Heavy Prog, with a slight emphasis towards Symphonic Prog in the keyboard work. They sound nothing like Amon Duul 2 or Guru Guru or Can or Faust. Their sound combines a hard/heavy rock element, with the more progressive aspect showing itself in the really well done keyboard work. Most songs are not that lengthy, but Bullfrog know how to do catchy, but cerebral things in a short span of time with their music that makes for an interesting album with no dull moments in it.

High In Spirit was recorded in 1977, and is proof that prog still had some great things going for it in that year. An album from Germany in that same year that is called to mind is Wallenstein's No More Love, which also combines hard rock delivery with a progressive element in some great keyboard work, though Wallenstein are more Symphonic, in general, and different, vocally.

The gritty vocals done in High In Spirit would not be to everybody's taste, but for me, they don't detract from the great instrumental interplay going on here. In the final analysis, this album is a delightful listen, and i give it four stars-both interesting and intriguing all the way through.

2 stars Movin' on to hard rock ...

BULLFROG's eponymous and solid debut with six (hard) rock songs. I cannot find much Prog and originality except one track which is really exciting. Remarkable are the rough vocals by Gerd Hoch without any accent and a nice Hammond appearance which sometimes remembers me at DEEP PURPLE. The album is disappointing a little bit with the first four songs because they are not more than mainstream rock.

I Came From The Sky is a better one with a nervous punching bass. The second side of the vinyl release is more interesting starting with Get Away which is the pretty flower. A short 10 minute epic, somewhat leaving the hard rock territory, a ballad with floydy moments, nice (girls) background vocals, synthie keys and compelling guitar work - excellent. Desert Man is initiated very promising by a recitative of their italian drummer and then developes to a mediocre grooving rock song.

Listening to their music it looks like BULLFROG set the focus very intensively on a commercial success like JERONIMO had for example with their hits "He Ya" and "Na Na Hey Hey" in 1970. They also released their debut in the USA. I'm missing more typical psychedelic, folk and krautrock elements which other german bands had at that time - 2.5 stars.

1 stars Third release by this Munich band consists mainly of very simple and catchy hard rocking tunes with some hammond added up. Really not anything a progfan would give a cent for. What makes it even worse there are some obvious disco rhythms in part of the songs present. I never had the chance to listen to their earlier outputs but this one here hasn't certainly any relation to what we understand by the Krautrock label. Quite ordinary stuff I've got to say. I'm usually careful with giving the lowest rating but I think this one deserves it.

3 stars Somewhat enjoyable hard rock/prog in the style of Jane, mainly. Singer Gerd Hoch has an astoundingly gruff, rough voice that's going to be hard for some listeners to take, but his style largely suits the music.

Not really a whole lot of prog on the A-side, pretty much straight-up hard boogie rock. The last two tracks, both extending longer than ten minutes, are the reasons to get this album. Full of Floydian changes and an Eloy-like spaciness, they're well-done for this style of music. Nice layers of celestial synths and aggressive Hammond organ from keysman Harald Kaltencker. Italian drummer Bruno Perosa (whose prior prog pedigree extends to playing the percussion-y bits in "Canto Nomade per un Prigioniero Politico" on Banco's IO SONNO NATO LIBERO album) even adds a cosmic recitation (in Italian!) at the beginning of "Desert Man".

Review by stefan

4 stars The first concert I saw was Bullfrog at our school arena. Fantastic! Sound, music and musical skills.This was a point in my life that opened my mind for Heavy Rock music. My girlfriend bought their first LP, I recorded it immediately to tape. Some days later I decided to buy it, because of the amazing artwork and it was a must for me to posess this LP as a lover of Hammond organ sounds. Up to now, this was one of the 10 most heard record in my collection (about 1500 LPs and CDs, Rock, Heavy Rock, Metal, Jazz, Jazzrock, electronic, drum and bass, ), the songs not really commercial but easily to understand and played with a big portion of feeling and some nice melodies. Fortunately, I discovered the album in a second hand CD store, and for 5-6 times every year my CD player runs this CD ....
