  • Description

    Joe Meek remains a legendary figure in the British music industry, a 'mad genius', a pioneer but with a flawed personality that meant working with him could be a tempestuous time.

    Mike Berry and The Outlaws recorded together and separately for Meek and were two of his most successful acts.

    Mike Berry went on to have other hits and make his name as an actor in Are You being Served? and Worzel Gummidge.

    Members of The Outlaws included highly rated drummer and session musician / producer Bobby Graham, Chas Hodges who later made a name for himself as one half on Chas & Dave and on one track on this CD, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was a member.

    Included in this twenty-two track package are the instrumentals The Outlaws recorded, two of which were hits, along with tracks on which they provided the backing tracks for Mike Berry. Including 'Tribute To Buddy Holly' and his Top 10 hit 'Don't You Think It's Time'.

    This is classic Joe Meek produced pop music from the very early sixties and is the first time the artists have been compiled, in any sort of depth, on one CD.

    The booklet tells the story of Joe Meek, The Outlaws and Mike Berry in the years before The Beatles and Merseybeat changed the British music scene and contains label scans and other contemporary visuals.
