Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan, but an integral part of the 1960s Detroit rock scene that also spawned Iggy Pop & The Stooges and the MC5, the Frost were a testament to the twin effects of electric Chicago blues and the British R&B invasion groups upon the emerging 'heavy' sound of late 1960s rock'n'roll.
Guitarist Dick Wagner later played with both Alice Cooper and Lou Reed. Rock & Roll Music and Sweet Lady Love were just two of the band's great songs that embrace the anthem and the lyrical within their powerhouse style.
Like their peers, The Frost could R-O-C-K!!! As producer Sam Charters recalls: 'When I heard them for the first time in a small club outside of Detroit, the raw power of their music seemed to blast right through the wall behind me'. Lurking, however, underneath the weight of those power chords are a bunch of great songs and, as Sam told me when we talked recently, 'I thought some of those songs were good. I really enjoyed working with The Frost'.
