THE JOE MEEK PRODUCTIONS 1961-1962
22 Tracks on 1 CD
Joe Meek remains a legendary figure in the British music industry – a pioneer with a flawed personality that meant working with him could be a tempestuous time. Mike Berry and The Outlaws recorded together and separately for Meek and were two of his most successful acts. Mike Berry went on to have other hits and made his name as an actor in Worzel Gummidge and Are You Being Served?. Members of The Outlaws included Chas Hodges who later made a name for himself as one half on Chas & Dave and on one track on this CD, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was a member. This is classic pop music from the very early sixties and is the first time the artists have been compiled on one CD. The booklet tells the story of Joe Meek, The Outlaws and Mike Berry in the years before The Beatles and Merseybeat changed the British music scene.
