Co Founder Web-Fi Sound
I was gifted with the ability to see and hear sound differently from other people and this gift allowed me to make first class recordings. I had to order the equipment while I was here in England and I had to wait a year for it to be put together. While I was waiting I had to learn how to operate equipment for a studio by having a hands on apprentice course in a film recording studio in South Kensington, where I was able to produce my own album tracks without a drummer. The result of that recording, which was on acetate, was taken to Denny Boyce management, who was so impressed with it he did a deal with Pye without my knowledge and at the same time we were booked, plus a drummer, to play at the Lyceum Ballroom where Denny Boyce was the resident band with Kathy Kirby as the bands singer. The manager of the Lyceum Ballroom, Mr Mullins confirmed the booking, which was for every Thursday night from 1st January1959. Having won the Soho Fair competition, which surprised us all, I was allowed to produce my own record against all the odds and two weeks after it was made it went into the charts.
The result of all of that was that we were offered a two year work contract by The Grade Organisation which ended December, 1961. Since I had no recording contract or personal contract I was free to leave the business and that is where Emile Ford, officially the brand name of The Grade Organisation, stepped out of the business of singing and into the recording engineering side for which I was qualified. Unfortunately, I was also England’s number 1 singing star which was not foreseen, which means that the musicians of the Checkmates went their way and I, Michael Emile Telford Miller went my own way. The final recording that we had done with The Checkmates was with The Les Reed Orchestra – “I Wonder who’s kissing her now” and “Doing The Twist”. Eight tracks on the “Counting Teardrops” CD were not with The Checkmates.
I then left England and went to Sweden where I lived in Lapland in order to carry out my research into sound and the testing of the sound was first carried out in all the Folk Parks in Sweden, which took three months in every year and took me 6 years to complete.
I was the first person in England to remaster a mastered recording and at that time the industry didn’t think it would work, as written by Neville Farmer
Because The Checkmates were the very first to receive a gold disc, the actual disc was 18ct gold.
