Charles M. Bogert

Sounds of North American Frogs (LP)

Label: Folkways Records

Format: LP

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In stock


Super tip! 2024 small repress available. It is probable that the first voice in existence was that of a frog," remarks renowned herpetologist Charles M. Bogert in the liner notes for Sounds of North American Frogs. These critters have been singing, croaking, barking, and chirping for millions of years, and Bogert captures 57 species in his 1958 compendium of frog calls. Sounds of North American Frogs has become one of the most coveted Folkways LPs, and we're proud to present a remastered version, out now on vinyl for the first time in 65 years. 

The classic of both biological fieldwork and natural sound recordings, which is compiled and narrated by Bogert, presents 92 recordings of frogs and toads from swamps, lakes, woods, creeks, and roadside ditches all over North America. Immerse yourself in the bewitching tones of the Pig Frog, Dwarf Mexican Treefrog, Little Green Toad, Southwestern Woodhouse's Toad, Great Basin Spadefoot, and other unsung heroes of the bog creek.
