Limited lilac-colored vinyl LP pressing with printed inner sleeve. In 1958 the BBC Radiophonic Workshop opened with the aim to enhance the main drama output on the Third Programme (now Radio 3) following the development of new electronic music techniques emanating from Europe. Their work expanded across the BBC to take in TV drama (especially sci-fi), schools programs and themes. The latter being their most celebrated and well known work: Delia Derbyshire's treatment of Ron Grainer's theme for Doctor Who. This collection was originally released on vinyl by BBC Records in 1979 to celebrate 21 years of the workshop's creative output. From The Goons (Bloodnock's Stomach), to the Interval Signal, to Doctor Who and Great Zoos of the World, this is a fascinating chronicle of some of the most innovative music ever made. These ground-breaking compositions have provided a major influence on music from The Beatles and Pink Floyd and onwards into the contemporary world of Aphex Twin, Orbital and The Chemical Brothers.
