Dunwich Album Discography
By Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: October 27, 2005

Bill Traut The Chicago-based Dunwich Label was owned by Bill Traut, Eddie Higgins, and George Badonsky and, after trying to distribute their first hit, "Gloria" by themselves, they quickly struck a deal to be distributed by Atco.

Eddie Higgins on Atlantic, 1967 Traut started as a jazz musician, playing saxophone and other instruments in sessions around Chicago in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He teamed up with Eddie Higgins, a jazz pianist, and eventually (early 1960s) both went to work for Seeburg Corporation. Seeburg was a juke box maker, and Traut and Higgins were busy producing background music. Seeburg rented a small space at Universal Studios, the top recording studios in Chicago, and Traut had a small office there. The two decided to produce jazz records, and approached Nesuhi Ertegun of Atlantic, who let them work on some Atlantic jazz recordings, in addition to having them record a couple of albums by Eddie Higgins himself.

In 1963, Bernie Clapper, who ran Universal at the time, offered Traut the use of Universal during "down time" to make recordings, and if anything was successful, Universal would be paid back for the studio time. Traut and Higgins decided that they wanted to leave Seeburg and start producing their own records, and met George Badonsky, a sales representative for Atlantic, who was interested in joining them in a new venture. They produced a few songs, and put one out called "Silverthumb" on their own Amboy records (named for Badonsky's home town). Second thoughts about a Chicago company named for a city in New Jersey led them to change the name to Dunwich, after an H.P. Lovecraft novel, "The Dunwich Horror." The three started as Dunwich Productions in 1965.

They hit the pavement around town looking for acts to sign. They latched onto the Shadows of Knight when they were playing teen nightclubs in their suburban hometown, Arlington Heights. Chicago disc jockey Clark Weber mentioned to Traut in 1966 that if he could find a "clean" version of Van Morrison's "Gloria" (which had been out by Morrison's group, Them, but censored off the airwaves), he could sell a million. Traut took him up on it and had the Shadows of Knight record it in a "teen-clean" vein, and it indeed sold a million, putting both the group and the first single for Dunwich Records on the map.

The Shadows of Knight had the world in their palm from the time "Gloria" hit in early spring, 1966, until the end of the year. It was their year. The original recording lineup for the Shadows of Knight was Jim Sohns (lead vocal), Warren Rogers (lead guitar), Jerry McGeorge (rhythm guitar), Joe Kelley (bass), and Tom Schiffour (drums). Their followup to "Gloria" was "Oh, Yeah," a Bo Diddley oldie that appeared on the first album as a completely different take from the snappy 45 version released in early summer, 1966. The Shadows continued to put hard-driving records onto the mid-reaches of the national charts, but high on the local Chicago charts. "Bad Little Woman," released in late summer, was followed by a psychedelic version of "Willie Jean," the old folk tune, and then in December by "I'm Gonna Make You Mine," two-plus minutes of fuzz guitar and growling lyrics like "I'm gonna take, girl, and you're gonna give."

Music) By the fall of 1966, the second album was issued. Kelley and Rogers had switched instrumental roles, Kelley taking over lead guitar. Although their second album, Bad Little Woman, didn't chart nationally, it was a blockbuster of rock-blues, arguably even better than their excellent debut album. Both have since become collectors' items. Soon after the album was cut, Rogers left the band due to personal problems, and for various reasons the band took a nose-dive off the charts, both national and local, and by early 1967 most of the original members (except Sohns) had left the group.

Jim Sohns found other musicians to back him in a new group, keeping the name Shadows of Knight with Kasenetz-Katz in 1968, and scoring with "Shake" on the Super-K label. In fact, Sohns became one of the generic, nameless lead singers used by Kasenetz and Katz on their formula bubblegum records on the Buddah label. By 1970, he was back at Atco for a one-shot single, but the curtain had come down on the group's chart career. During the 1990s, the Shadows of Knight have made appearances in Chicago, where they are always warmly welcomed.

The Mauds By mid-1967, Badonsky and Traut had bought out Higgins' part of the company and stopped putting records out on the Dunwich label per se. Rather, they did production and farmed the masters out to other labels, who put their logo on the records. They did a lot of production for Mercury/Philips, and placed a couple of new groups, the Mauds (a white soul group) and H.P. Lovecraft, on those labels. They also had a deal with Acta Records (distributed by Dot) for their group American Breed, who had originally been a popular South Side band called Gary and the Knight Lites.

Traut also recorded other Chicago bands, such as the Byzantine Empire, whom he signed to Amy/Mala/Bell. Byzantine Empire bassist/vocalist/writer (now attorney) Bruce Kerr recently wrote to us with the following insights. "Bill Traut was our band's producer for two years, 1968-69. We first were called the Five Bucks, then changed to Byzantine Empire when we went with Bill. We'd played Chicago summers and Ann Arbor, MI, winters where we were in college (U of Mich.), in '68. Bill signed us as his follow on to success with the American Breed ("Bend Me, Shape Me"). He signed us to Amy/Mala/Bell Records, released three 45s (four original songs, two covers). Bill had his downtown Chicago hotel piano playing buddy, Eddie Higgins, and another guy, Bobbie Schiff do the studio production with us. Bill always played it by the book, very fair and open. (His being a lawyer from the University of Wisconsin Law School landed me following in his footsteps there in '69 when the band graduated.) By the way, he also signed REO Speedwagon and Styx. I don't have all the details of that, but by then he had moved to L.A."

In the spring of 1968, Traut and Badonsky had a falling out, and Badonsky left Dunwich to form George badonsky Productions, taking the Mauds and H.P. Lovecraft with him. Meanwhile, Traut brought in Chicago producers Jim Golden and Bob Monaco (who as MG Productions had been responsible for production of the Cryan' Shames records on their Destination label) and reformed Dunwich as Dunwich Productions, Ltd.

Traut, Golden, and Monaco continued producing Chicago-based groups into the early 1970s. These included the Troll, Aorta, the Cryan' Shames, the Siegel-Schwall Band, and Mason Proffit. Many of the albums in the early 1970s ended up on the Los Angeles based Happy Tiger label, including a 1970 compilation of Dunwich and Destination material on a various artists compilation. They also resurrected the Dunwich label for one more album in 1970, a collection of live recordings from a Chicago night club.

By 1971, Traut and Golden were ready to start another record label. They teamed with Jerry Weintraub to start Wooden Nickel. Their early signings included the Siegel-Schwall Band and TW4, who renamed themselves Styx. Surprisingly, Traut put another album out on the Dunwich label about this time. It was a live recording done at the Earl of Old Town, a popular Chicago coffee house. It was obviously pressed by RCA, Wooden Nickel's distributor.

Traut remained in Chicago, but spent a lot of time in L.A., until Wooden Nickel was finished, in about 1977, after which he moved to the Los Angeles area. He managed the Impressions, until the mid-1990s, and continues to manage groups today, through his company Open Door Management in Pacific Palisades, California. His current website is opendoormanagement.com.

Bob Irwin's Sundazed label has reissued both the Shadows of Knight albums, all three Cryan' Shames albums, two Dunwich compilations, an unreleased Luv'd Ones album, as well as live performances by the Shadows of Knight and H.P. Lovecraft, on CD in the 1990s.

The label on the first Dunwich album [Dunwich 666/S666] is a purplish pink with black printing. On the Gloria album, the figure of a woman playing a musical instrument is a black ink drawing, with "IT'S DUNWICH MAN" in a yellow cartoon speech balloon above the center hole. The drawing of the woman is cut off on the bottom by a horizontal line running about an inch below the center of the record label. On the Bad Little Woman album [Dunwich 667/S667], the figure of the woman has changed to a black and white photo, and is not cut off by the horizontal line, which is no longer on the label. The label color on the second album is red. At the bottom of the label for both is "DISTRIBUTED BY ATCO RECORD SALES 1841 BROADWAY, NY., N.Y." Promotional copies of the label were white with black print, with the same graphics.

The final Dunwich label, used for the Earl of Old Town album, was brown with a large Dunwich logo.

In the original alternate take LP version (the 45 version was probably a later recording), which appeared on both the mono and stereo albums, you can actually hear the opening lines, "I got a little woman, she i'n' ve' tall" (she isn't very tall) rather than what sounds like, "I got a little woman, she is a towel" on the 45. The guitar that comes in right after "everything's gonna be all right this morning" at the start of the song on the 45 is also missing on the original alternate album version.
