A (Tel)star Is Born

A (Tel)star Is Born

Maverick London-based producer Joe Meek enjoyed significant success as the UK’s leading independent hit maker of the late 50s and early 60s. He left behind nearly 1,900 so-called Tea Chest Tapes, which were acquired by Cherry Red in 2020. Our latest release, 3CD set From Taboo To Telstar, Hits, Misses, Outtakes, Demos and More, features an in-depth exploration of Meek’s 1962 output which culminated in the global hit ‘Telstar’. Notable Meek-related singles we represent include the hits ‘Just Like Eddie’ and ‘You Were There’ by Heinz, Mike Berry’s hit ‘Don’t You Think It’s Time’ and ‘Baby It Hurts’ and a version of the classic ‘Lollipop’ by Glenda Collins.
