Editors’ Notes

Toad’s 1972 sophomore album Tomorrow Blue is thought by the Swiss hard-rock trio’s fans to be the band’s masterpiece. “Thoughts” opens sounding like collaboration between Vincebus Eruptum-era Blue Cheer and Jimi Hendrix – guitarist Vittorio "Vic" Vergeat played like a graduated scholar of acid-rock while inflecting with Dickie Peterson’s wild rasp. There was also a palpable chemistry that bonded him with bass player Werner Frohlich and Cosimo Lampis that even surpassed the musical skill and communication of Grand Funk Railroad. The rich, saturated guitar tones and unpredictable changes on this opening cut make it seem like each member of Toad could read each other’s minds telepathically. The following title-track blends bluesy strutting with unchained biker-rock to make for a tune that could be easily mistaken for early Led Zeppelin. The more sophisticated “Blind Chapman's Tales” shifts into some impressive acoustic guitar arpeggios and string arrangements revealing that these guys were studied musicians, while the 12-minute epic “Change In Time” blasts off into the rock ‘n’ roll cosmos.

I have never heard anyone I know talk about them. Did Toad ever tour outside Europe? If they did, they probably would have had more success, which they certainly deserve. Toad combined blues, progressive rock, and hard rock in the best way imaginable.

Swiss hard rock and blues-rock outfit Toad leaped (sorry) onto their country's charts with their debut single, "Stay," in 1972 — paving the way for the massive Swiss metal movement of the early '80s and such notable bands as Krokus and Celtic Frost. Mainly a three-piece, consisting of Vittorio "Vic" Vergeat (guitar/vocals), Werner Frohlich (bass), and Cosimo Lampis (drums), Toad often enlisted the help of an additional lead vocalist in much of their studio work (Bens Jaeger sang lead on their...
