I´m rather glad that I bought this limited edition box set from Frontiers Records because there´s only 1000 copies made and I´m pretty sure it will be a rare and expensive item on eBay in due time.
Reigning Frogs is a 5 CD + DVD set including all Unruly Child´s albums except the 1992 debut on Interscope Records and the 1995 album Tormented, released under Marcie Free but the band was actually called 12 Pound Sledge during the recordings of Tormented.
The packaging is excellent with lyrics on the inner sleeves and the CD´s as vinyl replica as well as a 20 page booklet with liner notes from Marcie Free, Bruce Gowdy and Guy Allison about everything you need to know and more about Unruly Child´s catalogue. Bruce Gowdy tells us why he hates "Criminal" from the first record so much and we also get to know Mark Free´s dark past when he almost commited suicide in what he calls the tormented years.
The 7 song mini album Down The Rabbit Hole is available exclusively on CD for the first time in this box set and we also get bonus tracks like "Ruby Tuesday" (Rolling Stones cover) on UCIII, "World of Difference" on Waiting For The Sun and "Talk To Me" (acoustic) on World Collide.
No further comments needed, this is a great box set of a great band.
