To quote New Musical Express's Keith Altham's sleeve notes from the Troggs album Trogglodynamite "Colin Frechter their arranger (a kind of honorary Trogg who blows, thumps or sings anything necessary to augment the group on disc)." Let us augment your ideas into digital sound!

THE TROGGS Wild Thing / With A Girl Like You / I Can't Control Myself / Any Way That You Want Me / Give It To Me / Night Of The Long Grass / Love Is All Around / Little Girl

We enjoyed working with Caroline. We had a very  happy time recording her "That's Who I Am" CD. When Caroline arrived at the studio she often brought with her delicious  jumbo sandwiches for us - what a lovely lass!
