DESCRIPTION

Certainly Britain's, maybe the planet's most adventurous record producer, Joe Meek was a maverick in an age of conformity and a madcap sound surgeon before the world really knew what a record producer was for. Without Meek, the UK may well not have achieved the level of musical sophistication it has enjoyed since the early 1960’s - Meek even taught George Martin a number of tricks when they worked together at EMI.

This collection represents Joe Meek’s early years, concentrating on the music he produced [and in many cases composed, albeit usually under one pseudonym or another] while working for labels and music entrepreneurs prior to his setting up of his legendary, independent Holloway Road studio RGM, in 1961.

From Big Bill Broonzy’s scorching blues to Humphrey Lyttelton’s ground breaking Jazz and taking in Peggy Seeger, Eric Winstone, Lonnie Donnegan, Johnny Duncan, Red Price and numerous others, this 2 CD set illustrates perfectly how Joe Meek was pivotal in developing all genres of British music in the late 1950s and through much of the 1960s. These tracks have never previously been compiled together.
