Box of Frogs were a band formed in 1983 by former members of the Yardbirds, who released their first album in 1984. The core group consisted of Chris Dreja, Paul Samwell-Smith, and Jim McCarty. Vocals on their eponymous album were done by John Fiddler, formerly of Medicine Head and British Lions; on the second album Fiddler sang on five tracks with guests including Graham Parker, Ian Dury and Roger Chapman singing lead on the others.
Strange Land (CD, Album, RM, Unofficial). Esoteric Recordings (4). ECLEC 2254. This, their second Frogs record, as their 1st, bring in some old friends. Jimmy Page, Rory Gallagher, Steve Hackett, Ian Dury, Max Middleton, Dzal Martin and a few others. The blend of guitar and piano topped off with John Fiddler's vocals are the backbone of this album.
BOX OF FROGS and STRANGE LAND were two of the very best 10 albums released in rock in the 80's/90's decades of rocksploitation. Try to get a hold of the import Renaissance Records or Sony Japan releases as they have the pinnacle of sound engineering to digital transfer. If you can't find the two-fer single CD, then by all means get yourself each CD separately (I believe they are still sold under Sony Special Products Market which will also have great sound). There are no weak tracks, but there is also no risk-taking which was a hallmark of any Yardbirds album.

I really feel horrible when I dislike an album that someone sent to me. I understand the time, effort, and emotion that was put into each track, and I really hate to tear that down just for my personal opinion. It makes me feel like a snob. However, this new album from Strange Land is exactly what I'm talking about, as I really can't stand it. Strange Land has morphed through different sounds and incarnations, and this current version is a two-man band featuring Sean Gill and Brad Klotz. These two do an admirable job of providing instrumentation and vocals for the entire album
