Fred Van Vught and Telephone

This Dutch group, which was discovered by famous producer Frank Farian and Rainer M. Ehrhardt, has expanded: Fred Van Vugt, well known as composer of the Boney M. track "Let It All Be Music" member of Telephone, with his help the group changed from Countrymusic to Pop music of the 80´s.

Dana My Love/I Feel Alright was produced by Frank Farian and Bernt Möhrle (Cherry Laine, Chilly and Supermax) and Simple Song/Higher was produced by Frank Farian and Rainer M. Ehrhardt.

Let It All Be Music, was written by Dutchman Fred Van Vught. The premiere of this song was on the promotion show for "Oceans Of Fantasy" called "Fantastic Boney M."
This show started and ended with "Let It All Be Music". At live shows during this period Boney M. opened with the song.

Telephone, an Amsterdam group formed by ex-members of Trix On The Hill (a later version of Trix & Paramounts) in 1970. Line-up: Trix Boelen, Fred Lusken (ex-Trix & Paramounts), René Boelen (Gallery), Edu from Heuven (Emily) and Arend Schouwmans. This line-up remained unchanged until 1972.

After that, the group worked as nightclub house band without Trix and René, but with Jan Dekker (ex-Jigsaw, to Gamma) and Jan Zethof. Later, Jan Zethof took over the name Telephone for his later formations, a band from Friesland, founded in 1974 by Jan Zethof, Klaas Boelens (ex-Starfighters and Atlantis), Bert Kromdijk (died in 1976 and replaced by Henk de Laat, ex-Torpedo's), Douwe Breeuwsma (ex-Lemon Squash), Ton Klein, Fred van Vugt, and Marieke Klein. In 1977, Klaas, Henk, Douwe and Fred Boomerang formed a group that became Fantasy later on. Jan Zethof formed the new Telephone with members of a Groningen band Washing Machine.
