This book is the second part of the Derek Tompkins and Beck Studio story. Between 1970 and 1984 Derek recorded a host of artists and bands from every musical genre, earning a top ten hit single and two silver discs. Bands as diverse as Bauhaus and The Barron Knights, Coast to Coast and The Jets, cabaret, folk, pop and punk bands all recorded at Beck. 

'Back Street Genius', the first part of Derek's story was published last August to very positive reviews. The cost of the first print run was met by crowdfunding. A hundred people each paid £10 and they each received a signed copy, posted to their address. There was enough left over to pay for the second run which is being sold through Waterstones and other bookshops and on-line retailers.

This book is over 400 pages and is packed with information, photographs and anecdotes. It will have a cover price of £19.99.

We are asking you to pay £12 which will cover the cost of printing and distribution. In return you will get a signed copy of the book.
