This AUD recording epitomizes the very best of the Grateful Dead “live sound” for the
time. The prototype Wall of Sound is nailed by Alembic and the sound crew for this
show. Set within an outdoor Stadium, this close-up infield FOB spatially captures
sound from the two Aux PA towers on the infield, behind the taper. This sound delay
adds a touch of ear candy as it rolls around the stadium. This show, and June 10
was by far the best sound I ever heard come out of a PA System, period. It was a
sensational orgy of sound.

Matt Smith did a great job transferring these tapes of mine! Thank you!

—Thank you Charlie Miller for your work on the SBD.
—Thank you Bill Gadsden,Neil Sturtevant and Jeremy Humphreys for the patch sources.
—Thank you Monte Barry for recording and mastering the show.
—Thank you Matt Smith for the AUD transfer.
—Thank you Dan McDonald (droncit) for technical consultations.
—Thank you XJ32 for the art work.
—Thank you Germain for your advice, encouragement, guidance and seeding.

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 The band performed club shows through 1997, and by the next year, Mbutu had left and Herbert had been replaced by yet another Aquarium Rescue Unit member, keyboardist/flutist Kofi Burbridge.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.

From BluesTraveler.net:

Frogwings began as an Allman Brothers/Aquarium Rescue Unit side project in 1997, with Edwin McCain as the lead singer. The band ran off five gigs in seven days in late May 1997, and the jazz/rock/calypso/metal fusion began. Founding members Butch Trucks [drums] and Jimmy Herring [guitar] were joined by the Burbridge brothers, Kofi [flute] and Oteil [bass], as well as Butch’s nephew Derek [guitar/, and band and percussion-mate Marc Quinones. The successful May run was followed by a two-week trip up and down the East coast in December, and this run cemented Frogwings as a permanent part of the Allman Brothers Band sideshow.

After a single Florida appearance in 1998, Edwin McCain was forced to leave the band due to issues with his record label [McCain was becoming a national star in his own right due to several hit singles off his latest album, Misguided Roses and the label no doubt wanted him to concentrate on his own band] and Blues Traveler’s John Popper was recruited as the new voice of Frogwings. Butch Trucks recalls the initial meeting between Popper and the rest of the band in a 1999 interview with JamBands.com:

Oh wow, I had no idea what would happen. We wrote a lot of stuff with Edwin and now John’s come in with his harp and his writing and his singing. It’s a lot harder edge now, a lot more rock ‘n’ roll oriented. It’s fun. I’m enjoying the hell out of it. We’re just going at it. We’re writing songs and playing and just having a ball doing it. […] We worked up 14 songs in five days last week. John Popper and Oteil were writing a song a day. It was amazing. They run the gamut from a calypso song to The Thrill Is Gone kind of a blues feel to a really uptempo Latin groove to one that is almost industrial thrash rock. On the surface, that’s what you’re hearing, but when you listen to what the bass and the guitars are doing, it’s fucking incredible. Really cool. It’s like industrial rock meets James Brown.

After rehearsing together for only two weeks in late January of 1999, the newest version of Frogwings hit the road with an inaugural gig at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, RI, supported by Derek Trucks’ band, whose leader pulled double duty all tour long. Two nights later, the band began a three-night stand at New York’s Wetlands Preserve, and rocked the house for over two hours each night, including a guest appearance by ex-Allman Warren Haynes on night two’s encore of Hot ‘Lanta. The entire tour was recorded for a live album, eventually entitled “Croakin’ At Toad’s”, released in late 2000. After the album was released, Dean Budnick interviewed Derek Trucks, again for Jambands.com, in which the younger Trucks reflected on the band’s genesis, tour and future.

Earlier in 2000, Butch Trucks and company began a record label, Flying Frog Records, taking on jam-band types such as Schleigho and the Slip. No further plans have been announced for Frogwings as of now but whenever band members are free, there is always the possibility of another brief tour…
