When rock and roll came along, we knew that the Brits couldn’t compete with the Americans. In some cases we had the talent but until the Beatles and the beat boom in 1963, the performers had to battle with staid and safe productions made by men in white coats at EMI, Decca, Philips and Pye Records. The one exception and the man ahead of the pack was Joe Meek, who created his mystic sounds at his studio above a leather shop at 304 Holloway Road, Islington in north London. He loved echo, distortion and strange instruments and he was certainly a pioneer, a maverick and an outlaw. This double CD, appropriately enough by the Outlaws, contains 28 of his productions. Meek wrote 18 of them, either under his own name or as Robert Duke.
