ACHTERGRONDINFO *** BACKGROUND INFORMATION
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.
RADIO 68 PLAYS The Chapters, St. Louis Union and Wynder K. Frog
SHEL TALMY: PLANET MOD
“Chances are The Kinks and The Who wouldn’t have made it big without producer Shel Talmy. His productions are usually labelled as “mod”, but he is one of the true BEAT MUSIC producers (“rock” didn’t exist). Unsurprisingly, Talmy also produced soul and R&B artists – if he heard or could insert a beat, Shel Talmy would do it without hesitation. In a few years’ time, The Creation, The Who, The Kinks and John Lee Hooker would appear on his roster. But Talmy also produced many more groups who met with less success (The Creation) or no response from the record buyers whatsoever. They are all great tracks, though” (Eddy Bonte)
RADIO 68 PLAYS the entire “Mod Planet” CD, both in My Generation and Blueside.
“Back in the sixties, producers had to be able to think outside the box, as they were hamstrung by what is now regarded as basic equipment. By being able to innovate, some producers were able to make groundbreaking recordings with what is now regarded as basic equipment. This included George Martin, Phil Spector, Joe Meek, Jimmy Miller and Jack Nitzsche. To that list the name Shel Talmy can be added, as he belongs in such illustrious company.
After all, Shel Talmy wasn’t just a producer, he was also a songwriter and talent spotter. However, first and foremost Shel Talmy is remembered as a pioneering producer who worked with some of the biggest names in British music. His innovative approach to production transformed many groups, and made stars of The Kinks and The Who, who went on to become two of the biggest names in British musical history. They’re just two of the hundreds of bands and artists who were produced by Shel Talmy during the most successful chapter in his musical career”.
