60s (mostly) uncomped - Intermezzo – Telstar!
Intermezzo – Telstar!|
This is a long overdue ode to my all time hero Joe Meek. Back in last year’s November, Phil Milstein had collected 23 Telstars tunes for his fine blog "Probe is Turning-On the Peoeple" (http://www.philxmilstein.com/probe). I’ve added some more versions from my archive sending it all to my pal Michael Zoot from garagetapes.blogspot who dug up more rare Telstars from far away parts of the globe such as Nicaragua, Finland and Costa Rica making ít up to 31,5 stellar tracks. So buckle up, check ignition, and push the go-button! (and don’t send me any more versions, I won’t handle it!)

Thanks, something to listen to on my boring work trip.
thx for your comment mate (I was worried none would ever stand 30+ Telstars....)

Fortunately I didn't lose my marbles. That was my first time hearing the lyrical version. Very cool
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "lose my marbels" but if you refer to Camillo Felgen's Irgendwann, that was a staple at Radio Luxemburg and probably my first encounter to the world of Pop, too (tho' Camillo was soon substituted by slightly hipper heroes...)
glad you dug the set!
