“To enjoy Joe Meek’s demos does require a sense of humor, and an appreciation of the absurd. Out of these moans and groans came the likes of “Telstar,” a global chart-topper that also made a pre-Beatles hit in the US. A producer of daring, innovation and sometimes surprising grace, Joe Meek the singer was a different beast entirely. To this Mr. Hyde of pop, I respectfully bow my head, tip my hat, and brace myself for the music we are all about to hear.” – Frank M. Young
