Product Description
LES CLAYPOOL’S FEARLESS FLYING FROG BRIGADE – LIVE FROG: SETS 1 – CD

Amazon.com
Fans grieved when Les Claypool put his funk-metal band Primus on ice, after he declared that he had reached an aesthetic dead end. It seems the bass-wrangling frontman has worked himself out of his creative despondency. Claypool’s band of collaborators, including original Primus guitarist Todd Huth, Critters Buggin’ saxophonist Skerik, Rat Dog’s Jay Lane and Jeff Chimenti, Pearl Jam/Chili Pepper’s skinbeater Jack Irons, and newcomer Eenor, turn out 70 minutes of live alchemy with the sum so much greater than its seemingly disparate parts. The rag-tag band take obscure diamonds in the rough and transform them into extended, edgy soundscapes that tickle the ears and intrigue the mind. They breathe new spectral light into King Crimson’s “Thela Hun Ginjeet” and Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” while striking such a heady funk groove in “Girls for Single Men” and “Riddles Are Abound Tonight,” that you’d swear Bootsy Collins was on board. Just when you think you’re beginning to understand where this eccentric outfit is headed, they switch gears and you find yourself on an island paradise swaying with the palm trees on the surf-o-delic “Hendershot.” Live Frogs is jam rock of the first order. –Jaan Uhelszki

    This is one of my all-time favorite pieces of music. This is a band composed of some of the best musicians of my time playing original music and covers that happen to by far better than the originals.

    Very good live record! Les doesn’t disappoint.Set 1 is even better (but shouldn’t be considered a substitute).

    The live mix and recording quality is phenomenal. Les has never had better live tone on a CD. The horns, the drums, everything sounds like you’re at the venue
