“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”.

“In the mid-60s barely a month went by when Graham Gouldman’s name did not feature in the UK charts under the title of a current hit. The young Mancunican wrote regularly for some of the biggest artists of the time – including Herman’s Hermits, the Mindbenders, the Yardbirds and the Hollies – as well as maintaining his own recording career in several groups, some real and others fictional aggregations that Graham and his chums in what became 10cc invented within the confines of their Strawberry Studios. His prolific nature was matched by a prodigious success rate. Almost everything Graham wrote for the acts that kept coming back for more was a hit somewhere in the world.

If anyone is overdue for inclusion in Ace’s Songwriter Series, it is Graham Keith Gouldman. “Listen People” brings together two dozen of his finest and most successful songs from a career that’s about to enter its 55th year, mostly performed by those who took them into the charts. It starts with his first recorded song, by his group the Mockingbirds from 1965, and ends with a collaboration with noughties teen sensations McFly. As you will hear from this carefully chosen selection, Graham has stayed totally in step with musical trends throughout his career.

Of Graham’s peers, probably only Paul McCartney, Ray Davies, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards can lay claim to similar songwriting longevity. Like those veterans, Graham is still out there on the road, successfully plying his trade with two separate shows – one featuring the hits of 10cc and the other focusing on the hits he wrote for others, including many of those heard here. In fact, as this is being written he’s packing his bags for a Scandinavian tour, with more gigs already scheduled for 2018”.
