WYNDER K. FROG
Wynder K. Frog, real name Mike Weaver, is a British musician who is mainly known as a Hammond wizard. It is also the name of the various line-ups of the group he led in the sixties.
He set up his first group with two former members of The Chapters, who had secured an audition with Decca. The audition did take place, but nothing came of it. Two members of this first line-up left for St. Louis Union, who recorded for Decca. They won a Melody Maker contest and the future looked bright. Though they played rough R&B, they scored a top 20 hit with a Beatles cover, Michelle. The remaining members s of Wynder K. Frog merged with The Wot Nots, giving birth to Wynder K. Frog Mark II. Even though one member left for Arthur Brown of ‘Fire’ fame, this was the line-up that caught the attention of Chris Blackwell, head of Island Records who released the first Frog single in 1966. Wynder aka Mike Weaver would soon become a leading musician who could count on the services of the best players and top producers like Muff Winwood, Jimmy Miller, Guy Stevens and Chris Blackwell himself. Wynder K. Frog would release a string of singles and three albums – all instrumentals with the occasional vocal – between 1966 and 1970, but the commercial breakthrough didn’t take place.
Wynder K. Frog was heavily influenced by soul and R&B (think James Brown), especially by keyboard wizards such as Jimmy McGriff, Booker T or Jimmy Smith, a liking he shared with Graham Bond, Georgie Fame and Zoot Money. I suppose you could file it under ‘ Mod music’, but fiery jazzy R&B suits me .

GEORGE ‘WILD CHILD’ BUTLER
Charles L. Hughes, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
“A product of the “Great Migration’, George “Wild Child” Butler (1936-2005) left his native Alabama for Chicago, Illinois, where he became a noted blues performer and harmonica player in that city’s blues tradition. He referred to his personal style as “the swamp sound,” which was characterized by his gutsy baritone growl. (…) He kept up his active performing schedule, and continued to record on a variety of independent labels. (…) Butler’s link between the larger blues tradition and his personal place within it reflected his ability to distinguish himself as an artist and performer while placing his music within a continuum of sounds, songs, and musicians. Butler remained a true believer in the “rootsy” blues that was his trademark up until his death from a pulmonary embolism in Windsor, on March 1, 2005; he was buried there shortly thereafter.
Although George “Wild Child” Butler is perhaps not as famous as many of his contemporaries, his life and work is as much a testament to the continuing power of blues traditions as any of his more well-known counterparts”.

LP “LICKIN’ GRAVY”
This album puts Butler in perhaps the smoothest company he’s ever worked with. All but one track were originally released on Ralph Bass’s Roots label in 1976. The personnel included Chicago guitarist Joe Kelley, bassist Aron Burton, and drummer Sam Lay; Joe Zaklan and Wild Bill Moore alternated on rhythm guitar. The rhythm section of Burton and Lay probably inhibited even Butler from getting too frisky with his timing, and young Kelley turned in a stellar performance. As if that weren’t enough, Rooster Blues added guitarist Jimmy Rogers and pianist Pinetop Perkins to several tracks when the album was remixed in 1986. (…) .
