The Trojan Horse (2006)


The Trojan Horse was Kiss The Frog’s true studio debut, with basic tracks recorded in 2004 at brand new Saddle Peak Ranch Studios in Topanga, CA and overdubs/arrangements recorded at Charles’ The Orange Room studios. The Trojan Horse features a ton of classic KTF songs, many of which have been stretched out with epic improvisational sections.
