If you have felt, like so many others nowadays, the noticeable absence of something wonderful in your life, prepare to have that void filled. Filled with an honest performance that separates the haves from the have-nots and the men from the boys. This runs strong in The Mighty Bullfrog. It's easy, it's simple and it's called funk.

Funk, a small word, but when it hits - you feel a big change come over you. You feel light, happy, you can't keep still, you have to dance and express yourself, lose yourself to the rhythm in a semi-trance, almost hypnotized under funk's control. But it's not controlling, it's just existence, the overall feeling united with the universe and all things that exist now, have existed from ancient times and will exist in the future. Bullfrog perform music from the past, present and future leaving you feeling enriched yet regretful you only have one pair of ears.
