This is an excellent CD of some of the output from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. My vinyl LP of this album is well & truly worn out, so finding this CD with extra tracks on it is kind of magical. These BBC radiophonic johnnies did some superb stuff over the years.

I have had this album on vinyl for many years and was delighted to discover it in CD format. Almost unique and real breakthrough music at the time, these recordings dating back to the early 60's in many cases,have stood the test of time. However, for anyone considering buying this album, don't expect lengthy tunes. Instead it is made up of 33 short snippets of electronic music, in some cases only a few seconds long. The sound quality is superb, as is to be expected with BBC recordings, and for listeners of a certain age (like this reviewer)it is amazing how many of the tunes sound familiar. This is an album to delve into rather than sit down and listen to in its entirety but well worth having.

Format: Audio CD
First compiled in 1968 as an in-house BBC Library LP, this was given a full commercial release in 1970 and was the first sampling of the Radiophonic Workshop's output. I must admit (being something of an anorak) it's a bit frustrating not to know exactly when the tracks were recorded - are they 1965-68 or '67-68? At least the "21" LP of 1979 put everything in date order. Either way this CD is a great snapshot of the RW's output from their three principle composers of the period. John Baker's compositions are by and large the most 'hummable' but Delia Derbyshire's 'Pot au Feu' is remarkable - almost her CV in musical form. The original compilers should be congratulated for making it a Dr Who theme-free release.

Another inconsequential gripe is that the Workshop's output from the period just after this (say 1968-70) has never been properly sampled. This would be particularly interesting as it would represent the last of the 'Baker Technique' recordings before the dreaded (and dreadful) synths came along to spoil the party.
