I got a question: the Repertoire CD Frijid Pink REP5242 – a sampler, includes Tracks, known from 1969 (Nr. 4), 1970 (5,6) 1971 (7) and 1972 Nr. (8), but I can't find any hint, when the rmaaining tracks (14 at all) are produced or recorded. Can you help me, please?
Chuck Mangus said on Jun 5, 2014 8:35 am
John ~~The CD is not a sampler, all song were rerecorded in the Frijid Pink studio. Life Unlived, Feein’ Down, Bad News, State Line Boogie and Something To Prove were brand new songs at the time of release. Watch for our new CD ” Made in Detroit ” in about 2 weeks.
Thank you for the comment!

I'm a Brazilian man and I'm deeply in love with "Crying Shame", from the debut album, but my english isn't good enough to understand the singing… I've figured out a good part of the music, but can't figure out the rest and it's driving me insane.
A complete lyric of Crying Shame (and the other works) could be very useful for non english speakers.
Yal are simply the best. What other concerts do you have planned besides Dec. 20? I’d like to make a special trip from Chicago to see yal play. BIG FAN 🙂

Miss Alex white,
It’s good to hear that you like our music! Please let your friends know about us too! As you may know, music promotion is not easy to come by these days and so, being a concert oriented band, we’re not gig-heavy at this point in time. But we are in the studio and have started recording our next album, ‘On The Edge’. Our current album ‘Made In Detroit’ was just released on 33 and 1/3 vinyl LP record. We do hope to play in Chicago at some point. There are some irons in the fire and we’re doing what we can to stoke the flames! Again, great to hear from you. Keep an eye on our ‘events’ tab and hopefully you’ll see more dates in the future.

Does the vinyl come with a digital download? Any way to order signed copies for my personal collection?
Chas said on Feb 12, 2015 8:49 am
Thank you for your correspondence. The vinyl LP does not include a digital download. Digital versions of our music are being handled by Amazon, emusic, itunes, etc.
We’d be happy to autograph an LP for your collection.
Keep rockin’ the vinyl!
Freedom said on Mar 8, 2015 11:30 am
Where did the band name come from?
Frijid Pink is my favorite band, together with Iron Butterfly.
I love you guys.
Chas said on Jun 23, 2015 5:10 pm
Thanks for the question and the answer is not short but will try to abbreviate.
The band name came from a white frigidair refrigerator, basically, and a pink bathroom, and a bottle of whisky. Add the other details yourself!
Matthew Lowe said on Mar 9, 2015 1:34 pm
Did the band ever play the filmore east or west? What ever happened to the rest of the band?
Chas said on Jun 23, 2015 5:07 pm
Thanks for the note. Never at the Filmore. The rest of the old band is still in the area doing their own thing.
Mark said on Apr 15, 2015 7:56 am
It’s Mark from Vienna!
I love listening your music and other great rock bands from the late 60ies and 70ties. I have always been heared my father’s lp’s und by now my children too!
Maybe it’s possible to get an autograph from you guys? I’d be pretty happy to get one! Thanks and keep on rockin’ !
Chas said on Jun 23, 2015 5:06 pm
Thanks for the message. Send us your address and we’ll mail autographs to you.
I used to play your album tracks in the 80’s onWEHB community radio, grand rapids. Did F.P.play at goose lake festival, 1970? Thanks! Dinkumly yours. Scott. P.S. sing a song for free Dom cuz the world’s at the end of the line!
Chas said on Aug 25, 2015 5:27 pm
Yes we did, even though we were not on the poster!
Gene Carli said on Aug 24, 2015 2:24 pm
Anywhere I can purchase the guitar sheet music of House of the rising sun .Your band is awesome, I was 15 when your version of House of the rising sun played on FM radio. Thanks for the memories.
Chas said on Aug 25, 2015 5:26 pm
Rick can scan it from his song book and email to you. Is email@example.com a good email to send it to? They’ll be coming in jpeg format.
David said on Sep 6, 2015 11:14 pm
I happen to went to school with Tom Harris. Would you if you could say where he is at the time. Why is he not in the Frigid Pink any longer? Fill me in if you have the time.
Chas said on Sep 15, 2015 6:18 pm
Tom is still in the area and has his own band called, ‘The Audio Band.’ They played this year at the Allen Park Street Fair.
Looking in an old box of stuff I found a copy of Rising Sun – Detroit Free Flash – Number One from 1970. Anyone remember this?
Chas said on Sep 15, 2015 6:16 pm
That was published by Frijid Pink and is very rare.
Thanks for the comment and memories!
Kendallville Comet said on Sep 9, 2015 7:45 pm
When are you going to play a date again? This drunk ol’ Hoosier would like to rock n roll some more before I die.
Chas said on Sep 15, 2015 6:14 pm
Token Lounge, Westland MI. Oct. 30th 2015
Ken Fell said on Sep 28, 2015 12:05 pm
I, as stated above I am Ken Fell and in the early 70’s was good friends with the band. At that time, I was in a band playing bass with Jim Budi and Cari Dayton and was very good friends with Satch. I would like very much to get a hold of Tom and wonder if you could be so kind as to give me his email address so that I may contact him and say hi.
Thank you very much and continued success in your endevours.
Chas said on Oct 4, 2015 4:34 pm
Tom still lives in Allen Park. Rick doesn’t have Tom’s email but will give your email to Tom.
Thanks for the contact.
Audrey Davis said on Jan 9, 2016 4:07 pm
I saw the band in Birmingham, Al. in 1970. Seems I met a guy named Satch (?) He is not mentioned here anywhere. What happened to him?
Chas said on Jan 26, 2016 6:01 pm
Satch is still hanging around the area but is playing with his own group, “Audio Band”. BTW, his name is Tom Harris.
Tim Daley said on Jan 9, 2016 9:57 pm
I just got my turntable fixed after 20 years of being broke. First thing I did was put on my original copy of ‘Frijid Pink’ and it brought back all those memories from the 70’s. Like so many Detroit area bands of the day, most were just a small step away from national stardom. That album is still one of the best ever made. I would get home from school, play my 45’s and practice my drums with “House” being played 3 or 4 times in a row. absolutely the best version of “House” ever…thanks, guys.
Chas said on Jan 26, 2016 6:04 pm
Glad you got your phonograph fixed. 🙂 Thanks for the nice compliments.
Feel free to pick up our new music on vinyl, sold here.

Kim said on Apr 8, 2016 9:54 pm
Rick, Your doing what you Love. Your not missing anything (CTC) Merb
Hey guys just another thanks from an ‘old’ fan. This song (House of the Rising Sun) convinced me 1971 that the bass was just as cool as an electric guitar. Thanks, Michael
Aaan said on Jun 19, 2016 11:11 am
I remember being at a Frijid Pink 1970 concert in Sydney Australia. An outdoor gig I think at the cricket ground. A bit Cold and wet? Winter down here.
I think it was the week after Jimi Hendrix died. May 1970.
Your band played a tribute song for Jimi, of Hey Joe.
Can anyone remember this except me.
Did you share the gig with other bands, or a solo tour.
Can’t find any info on your early Australian tours.
Please ask the band members, about this Event, and early Aussie Tours. Cheers Aaan.
I remember that show like it was yesterday. And yes it was raining hard, it was still a fun gig, all the gig’s in Australia were a great time!!! Oh, one other band I think.
Richard Mills said on Jul 25, 2016 11:59 am
A couple of years you autographed a record survey from a Toronto radio station featuring “Frijid Pink”. I’d like to get Tom Harris’ autograph as well. I understand that he is somewhere in Michigan. Can you help with any contact info?
My name is Arthur damman I ordered a CD album combo from you. I ordered it last Friday and haven’t received any information tracking number shipping information or anything like that it’s cetra. Hopefully I didn’t do anything wrong for the ordering process. Please get back with me on this a problem. Keep on rockin guys you do a good job. Hope to hear from you.
Hello, boys! Born and raised in the great Motor City and saw you guys decades ago…just cant remember where. Lol!! Working the morning show at a Classic Rocker here in Alexandria, MN. Come up and see us…and nothing but the BEST of luck at the anniversary gig!
Alexandria, mn http://www.voiceofalexandria.com
Hi Guys Ive had your album since I got it at warwick Farm Sydney Concert in Australia in 1970. I play it so much I have nearly worn it out. Im a great fan and truly believe your the best group of the era, Congrats on making me so happy, Glenn
Thank You Glenn, Had a great time in Australia, would love to do it again!!! Check out the web site for some new tunes! frijidpink.com
Csölle Gábor said on Dec 28, 2016 2:58 pm
Asked on Twitter, but gonna ask here also: Is there a long, or extended version of House of the Rising Sun available somewhere? That is like 10 minutes, or maybe even longer? My dad says he once heard it on the radio, and tried to find it, but can’t. I also tried looking at various online shops, but no luck. So I guessed, maybe there is a recorded version that is not available online? So all, in all, if there is a longer version that is available anywhere, online or physical, I would like to buy it for my dad 🙂
No, there was a fake band in Texas booking as Frijid Pink., we never did catch them!!!
Ron Greenslade UK said on Feb 6, 2018 9:01 pm

Chas said on May 5, 2018 11:31 am
Good to hear from you and glad that you’re enjoying the classic Frijid Pink music! We have just released a brand new 15 song album, ‘On the Edge.’ It’s for sale on this website and soon will be released onto the typical on-line download sites. UK tour would be a blast but not in the works… yet!
Paul Davies said on May 17, 2018 4:50 am
i sing in a lil jam band here in S Africa. Not sure how to ask this but having listened to the FRIJID PINK album (house of rising sun) for so many years i was hoping to throw in END OF THE LINE to sing and jam to. I cannot find lyrics anywhere !
Would it be possible with your permission to mail me the lyrics ? obviously we dont want to overstep any boundaries as such, but as they say “if you dont ask…..”
I can let you use House of The Rising Sun 2017 but not the one from 1970
Tim Olson said on Aug 31, 2018 11:51 pm
Walking aroud ae&b and heard good music playing and walked to listen to you for the first time. Really, really impressed. You guys put alot of heart into your music and it really shines bright.
Are you playing in the area again?
Chas said on Nov 7, 2018 11:10 am
Glad you liked us at Arts Eats and Beats! We had a fun night at that event. Upcoming shows are on the events calendar on this website. Also if you ‘like’ us on face book you’ll get notifications of our upcoming events https://www.facebook.com/FrijidPinkOfficial/ thanks for your interest!
Do you recall what equipment (Pedal(s), amp etc.) were used for the guitar on House of Rising Sun.
Chas said on Dec 10, 2018 6:06 pm
Hey James, thanks for the question. I’ll have to get with the guitarist in the band to answer that question. I take it you’re speaking to the 1970 version? We just re-recorded that song last year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnHDqG-wDLs
Brad Rebers said on Dec 25, 2018 6:04 pm
Do you ever play in Denver?
Chas said on Jan 9, 2019 10:32 am
Currently no gigs in Denver but we’d sure love to get there!!
Good to see you are still rocking the Frijid Pink sound 50 years later.Not many still are. I go way back to meeting you in ’66 when our band the Mass Confusion battled the Detroit Vibrations in Allen Park. Later I played one gig with you in Brighton? when the guitaist didn’t want to play.
Next time I saw you was in ’74 when my band Toe Jam opened for you at the Lincoln Park theater. Still have some posters for that. After going to Nashville for a few gigs wound up in Texas for a couple years then back in Michigan in a band called Gandalf 77-78.
Got out of music for 20 years then Then played bass in a christian band Soteria with 1 CD and a website.
Last time I saw you was at the Gibralter Trade Center music revival with all the Detroit greatest artists signing autographs. Well I hope I run into you again or see you play the House of the Rising Sun somewhere. Best regards!
Chas said on Apr 5, 2020 8:51 am
Hi, I was at the gig in Sydney in 1970. It was in September, the day after Jimi Hendrix died, It was a double bill with Frijid Pink, whose ‘House of the Rising Sun’ was getting good airplay and McKenna Mendelson Mianline who were a Canadian blues band with an album out called ‘Stink’. Unfortunately, they did not show so it was only Frijid Pink that played but it was a great gig and our disappointment at not seeing two bands was soon forgotten. Great to see you guys are still going.
Chas said on Dec 19, 2020 3:26 pm
Hey WhiteChas! Australia was a great time for us, glad you were there!
Just as an update, we’re still recording new music and hope to be playing shows in 2021!
Diane Foster said on May 26, 2020 8:25 pm
I remember you guys playing at Notre Dame High school.You were usually the headliner.MC5 Foghat on and on the bands came. However I never forgot about you guys not did I understand what happened to your band. Because I thought you were that good.You will always be a part of my history. Are you still playing concert’s.
Chas said on Dec 19, 2020 3:24 pm
We are still playing concerts, mostly summer festival style. This year, nothing… but we are still writing and recording. Hope to be out playing live in 2021!!
Thank you for the comment,
Richard Phillips said on Jul 14, 2020 5:40 pm
