Editorial Reviews

Special Edition of this classic album, now available again! Although obscure to many, this 1960 album remains one of the most influential albums in UK rock history, from which artists have tried to emulate and tracks continue to be sampled. Subtitled 'An Outer Space Music Fantasy', producer Meek created a collection of songs and sounds that he 'imagined' could have come from another world. This CD reissue features an additional 40 minute interview with Meek plus an Enhanced portion taken from a TV show in the early '60s 14 tracks total. RPM. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most treasured recording I possess December 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Within hours of moving into my new home, I began to set up my stereo equipment. I had a hankerin' for some aural lunar travel that could only be quenched by Joe Meek's unbelievably unique and perfect recordings found on the "I Hear a New World" CD. I remember the first time I heard "Magnetic Fields". I was sitting up in bed with my headphones connected to my laptop. After about 18% download progress, I hit "Preview" to sample what was to come. All I could hear was odd noises, clicks, hisses and pops. "Could this be a corrupted mp3," I asked myself. I gave it a few more minutes as the hijacked wifi signal went from "Low" to "Very Low" strength. I was now at 35%. I gave it another "Preview". Then, about one minute into the cacophonic sci-fi journey, I arrived. But what is this sound? A keyboard - an organ - theremin? The driving drumbeat was so heavenly as it took me away from my physical surroundings. The I.V. in my arm seemed to disappear as did the stench of the fella in the next bed. I started to laugh outloud. Nothing was funny at all. I was just so happy. I had struck gold and kept digging. I continued downloading "Love Dance of the Saroos", "Dribcots Spaceboat", "Orbit Around the Moon" as I laughed with delight. Never before or since have I actually LAUGHED with sheer delight.
So, after I set up my stereo, I proceeded to dig through my CD box. "Pink and black," I murmured as I searched. "Looking for pink and black.....Joe Meek and the Bluemen...where are you, CD?" I kept digging for about 20 minutes. It was nowhere to be found. I searched in other boxes. In the DVD box, the Christmas decoration box, the GI Joe box, the Chia pet box...NOWHERE! That's when it dawned on me - "The moon box!" My most special box of all. Of course, there it was sitting right between the authentic moon cheese curd and my Area 51 medallion. I found it. In this album, I have found what I've searched for my whole life. Most importantly, with this music pouring through my head, I've found sanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the space age July 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Hey kids-what was the FIRST rock concept album? was it The Wall? NA!!!! Tommy? NA!!!!!!! it was this album, released in 1960... Talk about space age:This album was released as a double EP back then to demonstrate the wonders of stereo in hi fi shops.Recored by the legendary producer Joe meek(of "Telsatr" fame),This album is his personal twisted visoin on moon people,space and all that mumbojumbospace crap.It has incrediably good sound for its times (lots of reverb,sound EFX),some good tunes(title track and the "hit" magnetic field),but the thing is very simple-only a limted edition of vinykl was produced back then....COLEECTIBLE! So now you can hear it agin(tough it was released in 91),but this time with an additional 35 min interview with meek(very noisey,but quiet interesting for ANYONE in the music biz),and a short movie of meek's work. This is a must for anyone who likes surf,psyc-rock and space.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Glistening Artifact Breathes Anew August 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Infamous British pop producer Joe Meek (of TELSTAR fame) attempted his audio manifesto in 1960, and the result was I HEAR A NEW WORLD, a collection of tracks which has finally seen the light of day. Any self-respecting 4-track-owning lover of sublime schlock must indulge. There are moments of rapture between the freshly digitized grooves. Predating Brian Wilson's SMILE by almost seven years, Meek (with a lot of uncredited help) fashioned a whole new acoustic landscape, begging to be traversed. A must!
