Bad Penny Blues: Joe Meek - The Early Years

JOE MEEK / VARIOUS ARTISTS Bad Penny Blues (2009 UK 55-track 2-CD set. Back in the 50s, before Meek successfully struck out on his own to establish himself as the UK's first wholly independent record producer, Joe Meek had served a remarkable'apprenticeship' during the course of which he engineered, co-produced and/or produced countless sessions for many of the UK's established record companies. Joe carved out a highly impressive reputation during this period, working on dozens ofhit records and in addition to his many and various Pop, Skiffle and R&R sessions, he also worked on copious Jazz, Folk, Blues, Calypso and even light orchestral recordings. Many RGM aficionados regard this as the most interesting phase of his oft-controversial career, and this unique compilation offers a comprehensive overview of those early years)
