Electric Fetus

EU-only two CD set. Long before he'd evolved into a fully-fledged cult figure, Joe Meek was the UK's first fully independent record producer. This unique set traces his career from his earliest sessions, as a sound balance engineer in the mid-'50s, to his emergence as a major songwriter and hitmaker in the early '60s. It includes many of Meek's biggest records, including five UK #1s by, Anne Shelton, Lonnie Donegan, Frankie Vaughan, Emile Ford and John Leyton, plus several other major million selling hits! Indeed, more than half of the 60 sides included herein were significant UK hits. This set also includes several collectors' rarities, previously unavailable on CD, most notably Gary Miller's unfeasibly-rare "Moby Dick". John Fraser's "Golden Cage" and Geoff Goddard's "Girl Bride". If you are looking for what is by far the most interesting Joe Meek-related compilation for years then this is it. Jasmine.
