eYeGeNeYe presents: Telstar (again)


This is a long overdue ode to my all time hero Joe Meek. Back who wrote and produced this tidbit that would soon become probably the most famous instrumental of the 60s worldwide. I wonder if he knew (remember we’re talking about a true genius, tho’) .
I had posted the original 32 tracks set on April27, 2014, and in the meantime I’ve collected more Telstars, so here we go with 60 Stellar Versions (actually it’s only 59 as I had to eliminate 1 track from CD#1 for space reasons (memory space, i. e).
Thanks go out to Phil Milstein and his blog "Probe is Turning-On the Peoeple" (http://www.philxmilstein.com/probe),to my pal Michael Zoot from the famous garagetapes.blogspot and to youtube channel Pàter Fulaniti (https://www.youtube.com/user/SanBisolvon)
I’m really curious if you manage to listen to all monothematic pieces of this double set.  I admit, I had listened to both CDs in a row, then decided to change 2 tracks on CD#1, but I didn’t make it to give one more final listen. Maybe in 5 years time, when I will have completely forgotten about my the updated Telstar effort. So again, buckle up, check ignition, and push the go-go-button! (and don’t send me any more versions, I won’t handle it!)
