Update: 2nd batch has just arrived.!  It's now back in stock.

Due to an astronomical rise in printing costs, we are publishing this last edition of the Frog Blues & Jazz Annual in very limited numbers – so please put your orders in at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.

We are immensely proud of this, the last, bigger (even heavier) and better Frog Annual. Comprising of 224 ‘art-house’ pages packed with new research, features and articles by such notable authors and aficionados as David Butters, David Evans, Brian Goggin, Chris Smith, Paul Swinton, Alex van der Tuuk, Gayle Dean Wardlow, Jerry Zolten and many others., plus our popular feature 'American Roots Artwork’ showing some of the incredible work of Max Hoeffner.

There are more than 340 rare photographs and vintage advertising – all beautifully restored. Plus a complimentary disc – featuring recorded rarities, unissued takes and classic blues and jazz performances from the 78 era and beyond.

Took its time, but we told you it was coming!
