An investigatory thread runs throughout the book, and the treasure trove of information and insight will prove a must for anyfan of this most enigmatic and revered of craftsmen.

The Legendary Joe Meek - The Telstar Man by John Repsch

The Beatles he rejected! His public life was one of laughter, tears and, above all, music. His private life was a tortured tangle of violence, sex, drugs, gangsters, the occult and eventually, murder.

This book also contains a full Joe Meek and related artists discography.
Conversations On Non Duality: Twenty Six Awakenings - Edited by Eleonora Gilbert
Conversations on Non-Duality: Twenty-six Awakenings is a fascinating compilation of life stories of perfectly ordinary people, from a rich variety of backgrounds, all of whom have been through extraordinary experiences leading to amazing new perceptions. Some have been seekers from a very young age, whilst others had previously never even thought in terms of ‘seeking’. Seeking for what? Nevertheless, all shared a common sense of dissatisfaction with their lives and a longing for happiness, connection, health, love, fulfilling relationships, wealth and freedom. This collection of life stories explores the means by which each individual went about achieving an end to their ‘suffering’. Some started with therapy, self-help workshops or read books written by spiritual masters, whilst others travelled to exotic places and studied with gurus. Others leapt from the despair of addiction to drugs and alcohol to simply waking up unexpectedly to a new reality. The warm openness with which these people tell the stories of their journeys ranges from the funny to the moving, tragic and inspiring, but there is something common to each which speaks to a part of ourselves that is profound, complete and never changing - a part shared by all living things. In simple terms, Non-Duality means no separation. Although it appears that there are separate individuals and objects in our world, in reality there is only Oneness. The spiritual search is the search for Oneness, for completeness and for unity. When this realisation truly hits us, it can transform us and our lives.
