3 CD anthology...Joe Meek...

Joe Meek, Telstar: Anthology, NOT3CD098
Joe Meek worked on some of Lonnie Donegan's skiffle hits. In 1960 he had a hit as the song writer of Angela Jones and in 1961 as the writer of Johnny Remember Me, a big hit for John Leyton. Joe Meek also wrote under the surname of Duke and many of his compositions are included. He had a successful association with singer Mike Berry. The Blue Men tracks are from the concept album I Hear a New World. There are 75 tracks and over 3 hours of distinctive sounds.
CD1 covers 1961 & 1962. CD2 covers 1962. CD3 covers 1959 to 1962. The sound transfers are great. Liner notes are by Not Now Music regular Michael Heatley. Attractive packaging and includes several black & white images of Joe Meek including some in a studio. All told an excellent collection of public domain recordings.
