Joe Meek: Joe Meek's Tea Chest Tapes - I Hear A New World’ Sessions – An Alternative Outer Space Fantasy (LP, 10inch)

(Cherry Red Records) 9 tracks

The Third Release Of The Tea Chest Tapes By Joe Meek!

- An exploration of the sessions that produced the early album 'i Hear A New World'.
- Previously Unheard Versions And Out-Takes! All in superb new clarity, straight from the tape archives of Joe Meek.
- The tapes were transferred and mastered by Alan Wilson of Western Star.

More than 60 years after the release of the original EP "I Hear A New World (Part 1)", it remains, as described on the original sleeve of the 7" single, a "strange record". Recorded with The Blue Men, a former skiffle group led by Rod Freeman, at Lansdowne Studios and Joe Meek's home on Holloway Road, this 1960 "space music fantasy" would not only transport listeners to a place they had never been before, but do so in stereo!

Over the years, this coveted single and the album from which it was taken have gained cult status, both for the studio's ingenuity and for its insight into the man who created it all.
For the first time, we present "I Hear A New World" as it has never been heard before, a collection of alternate versions taken directly from the original tapes. You can hear the Blue Men still learning their parts, while a haunting female voice fully expresses Joe Meek's otherworldly intentions in "Orbit Around The Moon."

Presented as two interconnected suites and interspersed with previously unheard material from the tapes used in the making of "I Hear A New World," this EP offers an exciting glimpse into what continues to be a "strange album."

Joe Meek

Meek came from Gloucester and did his National Service in the RAF as a radio technician in the early Fifties. In 1953, he came out and went to work as an engineer at the IBC studio, at that time one of only two independent studios in London. There he engineered records by Frankie Vaughan (`Green Door'), Denis Lotis, Lita Roza, Shirley Bassey, Anne Shelton, Harry Secombe and Petula Clark. In 1956, Meek went to work for Denis Preston at Lans-downe Studios, where he was engineer on several of Lonnie Donegan's early hits, including 'Cumberland Gap' and `Don't You Rock Me Daddy-O' as well as trad jazz records by Humphrey Lyttelton and Chris Barber. He also began dabbling in songwriting and in 1958 wrote Tommy Steele's Tut A Ring On Her Finger'.

Leaving Lansdowne in 1960, Meek built his own studio in a flat above a shop in Holloway, North London, equipping it with £3,000 worth of second-hand equipment. He called it RGM Sound and simultaneously activated his own label, Triumph, going against all odds at a time when British pop was monopolized by the three major labels.

A cover version of an American hit, 'Angela Jones' by Michael Cox, reached the Top Ten in June, 1960 but none of Triumph's other releases were successful and Meek discontinued the label in favour of tape-lease deals with the majors. He scored the following year with John Leyton's eerie, futuristic 'Johnny Remember Me' and 'Wild Wind', Mike Berry's poignant `Tribute to Buddy Holly' and several smaller hits by the Outlaws (with Richie Blackmore) who backed many of Meek's artists on record.

In 1962, a combination of Meek's session musicians recor-ded an instrumental he wrote titled `Te!star', under the name of the Tornados, which proved his biggest selling hit, reach-ing No. 1 in both Britain and America. In production terms, it still remains far ahead of contemporary records. The Tor-nados followed up with several slightly less successful records including 'Robot', 'Globetrotter' and 'Ice Cream Man' be-fore being swamped in the ensuing Merseybeat craze. Never-theless, Meek scored early in 1963 with Mike Berry's 'Don't You Think It's Time' and in 1964 with the Honeycomb's `Have I The Right', but found the going hard in the mid-Sixties.

He had no hits in 1966 and faced with increasing anxiety through personal problems, blew his brains out with a shotgun on February 3, 1967.
