Froggie Beaver biography
FROGGIE BEAVER were a very obscure, short-lived rock outfit formed in Omaha, Nebraska around 1970. They released one and only album "From The Pond" on their own in 1973 - which might be much influenced by late 60s psychedelic rock and early 70s progressive rock like Procol Harum, Pink Floyd, or Moody Blues - and disappeared soon after that. The line-up credited the album were John TROIA (voices), Ed STASZKO (keyboards), Rick BROWN (drums, percussion), and John FISCHER (guitars, bass).

"From The Pond" could see the light as a reissued CD (with 5 bonus tracks - two 45 and three unreleased studio ones) via an independent label Gear Fab Records in 1999.

— First review of this album —
3 stars The impact of collision against a big froggie can throw you off this real world ... ?

FROGGIE BEAVER were a very obscure, short-lived rock outfit formed in Omaha, Nebraska around 1970. They released one and only album "From The Pond" on their own in 1973 - which might be much influenced by late 60s psychedelic rock and early 70s progressive rock like Procol Harum, Pink Floyd, or Moody Blues - and disappeared soon after that. The line-up creditted the album were John TROIA (voices), Ed STASZKO (keyboards), Rick BROWN (drums, percussion), and John FISCHER (guitars, bass). "From The Pond" could see the light as a reissued CD (with 5 bonus tracks - two 45 and three unreleased studio ones) via an independent label Gear Fab Records in 1999.

Certainly we could not have found such an impressing band FROGGIE BEAVER if Gear Fab Records reissued "From The Pond" as a CD medium. Although they have never been known at all except a fact they had only a self-released album, we easily can capture their serious music attitude and terrific technique, quality of their album. Catch the grand psychedelic wave via "Road To Tomorrow Pt. 1", impressive with the quiet acoustic guitar solo and the solid keyboard backing, and by the following track "Lovely Lady", a bit poppy but speedy and fully technical one, we can be trampled over like a pebble under a lady's heel. Ed's keyboard play is as aggressive and graceful as Rick of Symphonic Yes I always feel, and at the same time how powerful John's voices are ... contrary to this, in "Come To Believe" John can flexibly change his vocal style into something like a mysteriously tragic singer, in a persistent sticky slow-tempo ballad. "Away From Home", the masterpiece in this album, is completely a tranquil, easygoing, and simultaneously 'real' Space Rock just like Echoes by Pink Floyd ... dreamy, heavy, and drastically dramatic air flow cannot let us regret at all. As honestly I say, this is one of my favourite progressive rock songs. The next one "Just For You" can be thought as a simple Acid Folk, but in my humble opinion they should be fully-blown progressive outfit around early 1970s. So, let me say it's too sad for us to leave FROGGIE BEAVER alone, how do you think?

Gratitude for Froggie, such a wonderful (and remarkably unknown) creation.
