An absolute classic. Maybe the first "weird" #1 hit on both the British and American charts. Joe Meek was a genius in the studio. Producers until that point were rarely considered such an integral part of the shape of sound. Traditionally they just did their best job to convey the music as straight as possible. Joe Meek was all about getting into your home by producing music in a way that you'd never heard before.

"Jungle Fever" is the one for me on this record. Has the real melodic cosmic twist of space disco, more than 10 years ahead of its time.

Mono record of a pioneer of the earliest electronic music, Robert George "Joe" Meek. "Telstar" was probably the first strange sounding no.1 in UK charts & the sure first british no.1 in the states. This track was an hommage to the first communication satellite sending informations in outer space at this time. Avantgarde in 1962!
