Bullfrog Blues


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Bullfrog Blues is a creation of Stephen Robb and collaboration with Fred Jams. The only part I had in this is mixing and mastering.

This is a rockin blues song that is sure to get your foot tapping. I first heard this at F-Jams and new I wanted to mix this.

I hope everyone here at Macjams enjoys Stephen and Fred's talent.

F-Jams is an open collab site that Fred Jams administers - Please check it out:

Lyrics
Well did you ever…. Well did you ever….

Well did you ever wake up with those bullfrogs on your mind?

Well did you ever wake up with those bullfrogs on your mind?

Just had to sit there laughing, laughing just to keep you from crying.

Well did you ever wake up with that one woman on your mind?

Well did you ever wake up with that one woman on your mind?

Just had to sit there laughing, laughing just to keep you from crying.

My mother got em, my father got em

My sister got em, my brother got em

Woke up this morning and my grandmother had em too

You’d know all about that, I had a bad case of the bullfrog blues

I was born one morning and the sun refused to shine

Born one morning and the sun refused to shine

My mother called up the doctor and said “Come on over and take a look at this son of mine.”

“He won’t eat, he won’t sleep. He won’t say a word.”

He won’t eat, he won’t sleep. He won’t say a word.”

The doctor just laughed and said “madam don’t be absurd!”

“Get that boy a six stringed steel guitar

Get that boy a six stringed steel guitar

And he’ll be running riot every night down at the hotel bar.” (?)

Well I called up the doctor, I was not feeling so well

Called up the doctor, I was not feeling so well

The doctor looked in his bag and said “well, well

“You don’t need no doctor, you don’t need no pill.

You don’t need no doctor, you don’t need no pill.

Take my advice and it’ll surely cure your ills.”

“Head on down to New Orleans. The prettiest place you ever seen.

Head on down where the river bends; that’s where the music never ends.

Open your ears, don’t it feel good? Get yourself a dose of rhythm and blues.”

Well did you ever wake up with those bullfrogs on your mind?

Well did you ever wake up with those bullfrogs on your mind?

Just had to sit there laughing, laughing just to keep you from crying.

Bullfrog Blues
Great choice in music as this is a fun, high energy song that is contagious and sounds like it was a blast to mix. Your production sounds good - very cohesive mix, or put another way, the band sounds like they are really playing together (heck maybe they ARE) instead of seperately as a collab effort. Nice pro sounding work, though I would expect nothing less from you, my friend. take care -

I'm very very lucky that Freddy agreed to lend his talented drumming and slide playing to my somewhat shambolic original, and that Michael kindly agreed to mix it, augmenting no end and giving it a more professional touch. I love what you've done and really appreciate the time and hard work you spent on this. Thank you guys!

Well, late to the party again,
as usual. But I got here and it's one Rockin' hot party for sure. What a little Blues Rockin' track this is.

Stephen and Fred kicked it out now and what a job they did, whoa. The mix is pristine and so very well done too. You can all be very proud of this one guys. It's going on my iPod and in rotation. Man what a killer song this one is.
