Editorial Reviews

The Frost represented the pinnacle of Midwest rock 'n' roll in the late '60s/early '70s, bowling over crowds at the famed Grande Ballroom with their power. This 1969 recording captures one such show as influential guitarist Dick Wagner and the band play Rock and Roll Music; Sweet Lady Love; Black As Night; Baby Once You Got It; Black Train , and more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally--A defintive album of The Frost! November 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
...Not to mention a big improvement on the original "Rock and Roll Music" album from 1969. If there was one group that a person could point to as the best example of bridging the gap between sixties psychedelic/garage rock and seventies heavy metal, it would have to be The Frost. Actually, it could be any number of proto-grunge bands from Detroit. But the Frost, perhaps, best exemplifies that description.
Previously, I had given a somewhat scathing review of the Frost album, "Rock And Roll Music", describing it as a "Jeckyll-and Hyde" disc, full of "wild concert stuff and mild-studio recordings". Actually, the liner notes by the producer of this disc shed quite a bit of light on that recording and this one--as well as the band itself. The truth is, this is what the original "Rock And Roll Music" album should have been. But for some reason, the original recording that they taped at the Grande Ballroom didn't turn out as well as they hoped, so they threw out a lot of what I would consider the "good" live recordings that were subsequently restored to this album, and made the band re-record some of the vocals, and some of their "lamer" songs at the Vanguard recording studios in New York, and then put out the "Rock And Roll music" album as kind-of a half-baked, patchwork album as a result. But this album right here is that album as it should have been in the beginning--the full concert gig from start-to-finish. Unedited, in all its grungy-glory. Gone are the syrupy ballads like "Linda" that were recorded to fill space on the "Rock And Roll Music" album, and replaced by great jams like "Baby, Once You Got It" and "Take My Hand/Mystery Man", restored here for all to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Band for the Era August 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
First of all, Jon Silverton's review has no merit. I've seen the Frost live many, many times at the Palladium in Birmingham, Michigan. I've seen the Stooges, MC5, Amboy Dukes, etc. For that era, I enjoyed The Frost the best. They sounded better live than their albums, there's not to many groups you can say for that.

Dick Wagner is probably one of the best guitarists I've seen, especially for leads. Rememeber, this era is gone. It was a time of creativity. All the bands wrote and played their own songs, and it always amazed me groups like the Frost never broke the Detroit era. They were both talented and incredible on stage.

I'm comparing this with bands like Savoy Brown, and other groups coming overseas. Imagine seeing these bands in a room less than the size of a gym. For all those from Deroit - Easttown Theatre, Paladium, Grande Ballroom should bring back memories never to be repeated. Jon, please stay in Ohio.

The Frost are for those who lived an era with the 5th Estate.

The Frost was a late 1960's Detroit group that released three albums on Vanguard, "Frost Music," "Rock and Roll Music", and "Through the Eyes of Love." The first album was fair, the second was better and included "live" recordings made at the Grande Ballroom and some studio recordings. Their final album released in 1970 showed significant development in songwriting and performance, and it was unfortunate they split up shortly after that. The group was extremely popular in Michigan but unknown just about everywhere else.

This CD was previously issued in 2001 as "Live at the Grande Ballroom". It will immediately appeal to any original fan of the group. It turns out that the live songs released on "Rock and Roll Music" were live except that the vocals were redubbed, and the band was recorded on two nights at the Grande Ballroom. None of the songs included on the new release have been previously released, all are completely "live", and the band just burns through the first songs.

"Rock and Roll Music," "Sweet Lady Love," "Baby If You Got It" are great, hard energy rock of late '60's Detroit rock. "Donny's Blues," a highlight of the R&RM album, is nearly as good here, but the version released in 1969 is slightly better. The opening of the live recording of "Black as Night" is great, it's too bad it wasn't retained on the studio recording. "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" is over 16 minutes long, certainly a great song to witness if you were in the audience, but hard to appreciate listening to this CD due to its length.
