Frogwings is:

Derek Trucks – slide guitar
Jimmy Herring – guitar
Oteil Burbridge – bass
Kofi Burbridge – keys, flute
Marc Quiñones – percussion
Butch Trucks – drums

Track 2 was on the setlist as “Shuffle”, a song that would evolve over the course of Frogwing’s run, with John customizing the lyrics to each show’s location. This version, however, was simply a slowed-down version of an old Blues Traveler song called “Corn Mash Blues”.

Odd level changes at 5:09 of d1t03 and 5:55/7:21 of d1t04, like an amp was failing on stage.

Outside of Gregg Allman, drummer Butch Trucks is the only member of Georgia’s venerable Allman Brothers Band who’s still in the lineup and has appeared on every album. But during one of the Allman’s lulls in activity during the mid-’90s, Trucks decided to put together a side project that would allow him to play with his nephew (and future Allman Brothers guitarist), Derek Trucks. The elder Trucks called the group Frogwings, additionally recruiting Aquarium Rescue Unit members Oteil Burbridge (bass, vocals), Jimmy Herring (guitar), and Count Mbutu (percussion), Allman Brothers percussionist Marc Quinones, plus keyboardist John Herbert and vocalist/guitarist Edwin McCain. The band performed club shows through 1997, and by the next year, Mbutu had left and Herbert had been replaced by yet another Aquarium Rescue Unit member, keyboardist/flutist Kofi Burbridge. Frogwings was becoming a hit in festivals and among the jam band circuit, yet still hadn’t released a CD. But when McCain departed to focus on his solo career and Trucks recruited Blues Traveler frontman John Popper, the drummer knew he had the Frogwings lineup to record for his fledgling Flying Frog Records label.
