Green Bullfrog was an album resulting from a one-off studio project and recorded between February and May 1970. The album was the idea of producer Derek Lawrence who assembled a group of musicians with whom he had worked in the 1960s. For contractual reasons, the musicians were billed under pseudonyms:
Albert Lee = Pinta
Matthew Fisher = Sorry
Ian Paice of Deep Purple = Speedy
Tony Ashton = Bevy
Rod Alexander = Vicar
Chas Hodges = Sleepy
Earl Jordan = Jordan
Big Jim Sullivan = Boss
Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple = Boots
Despite rumours at the time Albert Lee, Jeff Beck, Roger Glover and Jon Lord do not appear on the sessions. A few originals (penned by Lawrence) were played, as well as many blues-inflected covers of rock songs. A record of this session was released in 1972. It was first issued on vinyl by MCA Records in the UK and Decca records in the USA.
