After the 1960s he was only sporadically active in the studio, although he was still doing projects here and there into the '90s. Born in Chicago, Talmy cut his teeth in the record business as an engineer in L.A. in the early '60s. In 1962, he turned a European vacation into a job in Britain when he played acetates of Beach Boys and Lou Rawls songs to Dick Rowe of Decca Records, claiming them as his own productions (although they weren't). Rowe hired him for Decca and double-checked Talmy's credentials with friends of his who were in high places and only too happy to confirm that Talmy had done everything he'd claimed he had. By the time it became apparent Talmy was bluffing, he had already started to have hits for Decca, who were content to keep him on.  Talmy started out working with pop singers in the U.K., including the Bachelors. Very soon after he arrived in Britain, however, the British Invasion started to take off. Talmy was soon working primarily as an independent producer rather than as a label employee, and was keen to get in on the "Beat Boom," as it was called in Britain, with guitar-oriented groups. Perhaps because of his American background, Talmy was more inclined to keep a raw edge on the performances and record distorted guitars at high volumes than more established producers of the time would have.  It is not well-known that Talmy was also an extremely capable folk producer who enjoyed working with acoustic guitars as well as electric ones. His most notable achievement in this regard is his production of early Pentangle albums, as well as material by Roy Harper and Pentangle guitarist Bert Jansch. It's undeniable that Talmy produced some of the best and most innovative work of the Who, the Kinks, the Easybeats, and others, results which are unlikely to have been achieved by sheer chance. Talmy became less active in the studio in the 1970s, although he produced albums by little-known acts such as Fumble and Rumpelstiltskin. At the end of the '70s he returned to the United States, and has occasionally dabbled in production for low-profile acts since, such as Jon & the Nightriders, the Sorrows (not the mid-'60s British Invasion group of that name), and Nancy Boy. ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
