Product Description:

The second Western Star tribute compilation that celebrates the work of the at-times brilliantly eccentric British music producer Joe Meek, this set complements rather than replaces Meek's original 1950s and 1960s versions of these songs. Everything here was recorded at Alan Wilson's Western Star Studios and only artists who have recorded at the studio for Wilson are included -- Western Star never releases anything that is tracked elsewhere. Although these versions certainly don t diminish Meek's originals -- part of Meek's appeal was his kitchen sink-styled productions that were big on often accidental atmospherics rather than deliberate professional polish -- the best of them illuminate and update the strengths of the originals. Included are updates of classic Meek productions by in-house Wilson-approved artists like John Leyton, the Packabeats, Sue Moreno, and others. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
