Second Wind = Digipak = (CD)
SECOND WIND - a phrase out of Anglo-Saxon wording, which stands for a runner who gets over the dead spot and thus releases remarkable power. Pure energy. This is the way these five profi-rockers from the south of Germany saw their music and the album which they published in the year 1980. After "Bullfrog" and "High In Spirits" it was their third vinyl. Bullfrog always were fancy to hop over the big blue pond. Thus the band never was willing to get in line with the hip trend of singing German lyrics. They remain consequent which was proven by success: German TV executives listened attentively with the result that the musicians found themselves on the stage of the Dortmunder Westfalenhalle - Live recording as one of the first German bands for WDR-ROCKPALAST which still is a fix tv-part and a hallmark with cult status. Also international the first signs of acceptance: »The wildest Cats of Germany« was written in an article of the legendary army-mag "Stars and Stripes", after the band obviously delivered a convincing concert in a German-American club. Also the US-station AFN sent a huge interview with introducing their vinyl. Tom Conners, manager of the (at that time) successful band MITCH RYDER named BULLFROG as one of the less German bands which might have a breakthrough in the USA. Upon the good connections to the US music scene Bullfrog got a second singer from Chicago. Timothy "Tim" Gainer with his multifaceted and clear singing a real counterpoint to the raspy voice of the leader Gerd Hoch. Singing together they are not available on any vinyl but, after about three decades, for the first time on this cd.
