Product description

Everyone knows that the TARDIS is bigger on the inside than the outside; and the selection of aural locations from the Doctor's travels will equally broaden your horizons. No fewer than seven alien worlds are visited, together with some extra-ordinary, extra-dimensional occurrences encountered on Earth (Sol 3 in the Mutters Spiral). Add to these an audiogram of the Doctor's own mind processes, TARDIS operations, some weapons for self-defence and your galactic safety is ensured. Time Lord note: a source of jelly babies is recommended to complete the illusion of time travel. Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD for the first time ever. 1 CD. 33 mins.

Author information

The BBC Radiophonic Workshop was created in 1958 to produce unusual, innovative music and sounds to accompany the more ambitious programmes of the time. Its experimental approach and talented team led to many groundbreaking recordings, and it is among the pioneers of electronic sound and modern music. Early work included devising comedy sounds for The Goon Show and sci-fi sounds for the cult drama Quatermass and the Pit; while during the Sixties and Seventies the Workshop branched out from radio to television. It is probably best known for the Doctor Who theme tune - a masterly realisation of Ron Grainer's original score, rendered as an eerie piece of electronic music by Delia Derbyshire. By the 1980s, the Workshop was contributing to around 300 programmes a year, including Blue Peter, Tomorrow's World, Blake's 7 and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; but the rise of keyboards and synthesizers meant that by the late Nineties the BBC could no longer continue to maintain state-of-the-art sound studios. The Radiophonic Workshop closed in 1998, though interest in it lives on - landmark releases BBC Radiophonic Music and BBC Radiophonic Workshop have recently been re-released on vinyl. In addition , five longtime members of the Workshop - original founder Dick Mills plus Paddy Kingsland, Peter Howell, Roger Limb and Mark Ayres - toured in 2013, playing concerts at Festival No. 6, The London Electronic Arts Festival and the Science Museum.

Review quote

"DOCTOR WHO - SOUND EFFECTS' importance resonates as significantly as a Yale key scarifying a taut piano wire. A singularly simple album but essential." -- Matthew Walter http://www.eyeofhorus.org.uk
