The ultimate goal, in establishing this site, is to establish a resource that is enduring, with regard to its' ability to contribute to the on-going effort to foster a state of collective dignity for all humankind.
Once this site is self-sufficient, hopefully by the time of my next CD Release, 50% of all net profits from sales of my Cds will be donated to charitable organizations, to assist in their efforts to provide access to basic medical care, provision of basic daily human requirements and on-going efforts to alleviate global poverty - including the huge poverty problem right here in the U.S. Unfortunately, those suffering the most from the ravages of poverty are our world's children - or, i.e our future. Our children are our future.
Please get on my e-mail list and I will keep you informed as to the progress of this project. Once initiated, all records of finances will be public and open for public scrutiny.
The arctic waters have begun to boil
Our seas polluted by blood and oil
Those who orchestrate it say its your imagination
The body counts on both sides grow high
A new twin towers to the sky
Human Gods' tell us it is but an hallucination
They send forth an idiot on a white horse
Who mumbles shit like "stay the course"
See's himself as essential to messianic visions
But he can't understand the pain he brings
He's merely a puppet thing that hangs on strings
Manipulated by those who make the true decisions

CDBABY.COM COMMENTARY :
Two paws up!! Rick does it again !! – Jae

This CD rocks – awesome lyrics and amazing music. The thought provoking lyrics in combination with some very skilled guitar playing makes for some well deserved listening. – Sherri
Rick, you rock more than ever! This is an awesome CD. I’m thrilled by how great you sound. Songs are lyrically strong, as always – had me rocking. Kudos to you. Rick Frost is better than ever !!! This is a must have CD ! – Heather
What can I say? You rock! Keep the good tunes coming. If you haven’t had the chance to hear this guy play, you really need to check him out ! And, check out “Something Special”, you’ll love it ! – Wolff Mutt
The music on this CD is such an emotional journey.. carries some of the dry humor and sarcasm of past stuff I've heard... but not nearly as much, it proclaims a brighter future. It's inspirational, well done and incredibly impressive for a single man to produce. Bravo:) – Review by Leah
TOWER RECORDS – Consumer Review
Rick Frost is a great guitarist and prolific lyricist. I have had the pleasure of seeing him live both as an electric guitarist and an acoustic guitarist. I know for a fact, that this guy made this CD with very little money. Yet, the songs are uniquely his own and tastefully presented. WATCH OUT – if this dude ever gets released w/ a creative budget behind him – things are going to explode.
Thing with Rick is that he lives his words. Of the thousands of gigs he’s done, over the course of the past decade, over 90% of them have been done for charity – even though he can’t afford to buy his own car.Amazing guy – writes amazing songs, as is evidenced on “Something Special.” From his “tip of the hat” to “What The Bleep” w/ Nothin’ We Can’t Do – to his assassination of those things technical with “ I Threw My Cell Phone In The Ocean Today”, Rick is refreshingly original. Visit his web site – listen to the whole CD for free – then come back to Tower Records and buy it. It is quite a piece of work for one guy w/ one guitar – 5 STARS OUT of FIVE – A Lot of Bang for Your Buck – Reviewer Darnel
Rick every new song you play amazes me more than the last. Your new CD has been very inspirational to me, in trying to write my own stuff. I have to say out of all the people I’ve played your stuff for, everyone of them finds someway to connect to it.Can’t wait for more music. Love you – Mel Bell
I love your new CD, Something Special. You are incredible and I can’t wait for you to play Black Mountain, NC when Gandalf and you come down in Oct. – I know it will be fabulous. – Becca
The value of ANYTHING is determined by the agreement of only two people. And, “Something Special” has significant value. – Jacob
Local artist Rick Frost with … his tall thin frame and Edgar Winter hair … immediately engaged the crowd with his congenial banter, dry humor and nimble licks on the acoustic guitar. Rick, was on a poetic mission and his politics and spirituality came through on the wings of some powerful lyrics as evidenced by “Homeless Joe” and “I Threw My Cell phone In The Ocean Today”, which he delivered in a vocal style somewhere between Arlo Guthrie and Elvin Bishop, a nice balance of sarcasm and genuine worldly concern. The package was effective and got us revved for the main event. - A NIGHT AT THE PUPPET HOUSE WITH RICK FROST AND GANDALF MURPHY & THE SLAMBOVIAN CIRCUS OF DREAMS – Review, CTMUSICSCENE.COM, Brian Gillie
“Perhaps you are not familiar with Rick Frost … if not you should be …. A modern day musical crusader, who rocks with messages of what’s wrong in today’s society”, ( Power Slammed, A Music Review, The Trumpeter, by Roger Straub). Referred to by local press as “a crowd pleaser who generates excitement whenever he appears. Frost is widely known for his smouldering brand of socio-political originals”, ( Frost In May, The Shoreline Times). Frost’s last appearance, at the Stony Creek Puppet House and Performing Arts Center, resulted in accolades from the local press, including commentary such as: “ good stage presence … accomplished musical style … an impressive blend of acoustic/electric originals …. A great set!” – Giglist.com, (where Rick Frost was voted “Band of the Month – April, 2000” in the UK).
SLAMBOVIAN WONDERWALL COMMENTARY (RE: Jan. 21, 2006, Performance)
What a show at the Puppet House! Phenomenal! Rick Frost was exceptional – truly a gifted guitarist and lyricist …. He kind of looked like a sorcerer; sure played like one. I’d never seen him perform live before and I was blown away! Jim Morrison had the Lizard King, put Joziah Longo and Rick Frost on the same stage and you have the “Wizard Kings.” Nice job Puppet House – Fun At The PuppetHouse
Wow! What an incredible time I had at the Puppet House, on Sat. night. A huge thanks to both Rick Frost and the Gandalf gang. Rick is really an amazing artist. The combination of stellar lyrics, excellent guitar playing and a compelling sense of humor makes for a winning combination. Rock on Rick Frost – the talented man with the wild hair! - Dante
Special thanks to Rick Frost. Your opening set was wonderful. Thanks again to The Circus, Rick Frost and The Puppet House for a night that was so wonderful and different. - Glad We Made It
Rick Frost opened and put on the best show I’ve ever seen him do. Whatever it is you are doing Rick, keep on doing it. I loved all the pokes and jokes on the politics that you did. After all this is America – we can say what we want and hopefully not get shot for it. Many laughs were had by much of what you said. And, it felt great to laugh ! - Sunshine
Loved your show @ The Puppet House. Your CD, Something Special is great! You and Gandalf seem to have a really cool symbiotic relationship. You folks put on a great show together. Keep rockin’ - Sallie
Saw you at the Puppet House w/ Gandalf Murphy. Loved your set and your CD, “Something Special” as well. - Dave
Rick, not sure if you knew, or not, but people in England, Scotland, Germany, Romania are familiar with your wonderful music. In Alupka, where I reside, you are quite popular with us. Love to you. - Bandi
