Before Peter Howell, before Dudley Simpson, before the "Drumdramatics" stock music of 'Tenth Planet' and subsequent Cybermen episodes, there was Tristram Cary, forging a completely unique musical path for Doctor Who with some of the most avant-garde electronic music heard up to that point. The music from three stories is featured here, those stories being 'The Daleks' (1963/64), 'The Daleks' Masterplan' (1965/66) and 'The Mutants' (1972). Each is distinctly different: 'The Daleks' receive the cutting-edge treatment - oscillators, feedback, nothing's too far-fetched, and given that story's pivotal place in Doctor Who (not to mention television and science fiction) history, the unique treatment is fitting. 'Masterplan' receives a somewhat more conventional acoustic sound for the most part (with the odd electronic addition here and there), while 'The Mutants' (a Jon Pertwee story) is very reminiscent of Malcolm Clark's music for 'The Sea Devils,' only perhaps with a more organized rhythmic (if not necessarily tonal) structure. Not as accessible as some of the later works of Howell and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Mark Ayres or Dominic Glynn, certainly, but in the year that we're celebrating the 40th anniversary of the series, there's no more perfect choice (or surprising! Who knew these tapes still existed!?) for this year's Doctor Who music release. Give it a listen at least once, and do a little time traveling of your own back to a Saturday evening in December 1963...

I always liked this kind of music, but I was aware it was a very niche kind of market, for these kind of soundtracks. It's a shame the Beeb no longer actually sell it anymore, so I'm very thankful to the seller who put it up on here. It was worth every penny.

Tristram Carey, early electronic music pioneer, gets his own Dr. Who 2-CD release...and it's about time!! 9 Oct. 2014
By C. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although i got this cd way back in the early part of the 21st century, i recently rediscovered it sitting in a CD cabinet and, after having watched the 1963 story “The Daleks” for the first time....umm..yea..I started watching Dr. Who back in 1980 and had seen every freakin episode since, but you know how it is, you put something off for a day and before you know it..... it’s 34 years later. So..after having watched the Daleks i figured the tracks would be more recognizale in their context of background to the story and i might enjoy them better. Well.....indeed i did. Carey’s purely electronic music is so vastly different from the major Radiophonic Workshop players..Dudley Simpson (sadly 95% of his scores are gone..but thank the lord for that 11 CD set with his newly released, original scores), Peter Howell (ahh...the 80s ;)) , Paddy Kingsland (too much goodness to speak of), Roger Limb (Arc of Infinity!!! Yes!!!!), Geoffrey Burgon (simply awesome, dramatic, and creepy scores), Jonathan Gibbs (gotta love those Kings Demons cues), Malcolm Clarke (an early electronic music genius also), and... of course...all hail to Mark Ayers for his work and in getting so much of the original scores cleaned up and released in CD format. But yes, Carey was indeed an early electronic music pioneer in the genre of “Moog” and “musique concrete” and his work shines in “The Daleks”, and, particularly...umm..that one where poor guy Ky turns into some blond haired Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat looking fool,.. story “The Mutants”. This 2 CD set gives you all you could ever want of his music from the early years of Doctor Who. Again, totally different in terms of the Doctor Who scores most people may be accustomed to and it certainly won’t be confused with Malcolm Clarke and his own zappy electronic style cues for “The Sea Devils...which is excellent in its own right, but these scores are definitely an island all their own and will likely be appreciated by those hard core fans of classic Who. Just don’t listen to both CDs in one sitting....it will get a bit repetative and possibly scramble your brain temporarily....but that’s no biggie...just reverse the polarity...go for a nap in the zero room.... take 48 hours of induced deep sleep on the delta wave augmenteror...or whatever works for you....and you’ll always be good to go. Enjoy it like those Hershey Kisses chocolates....little bite sizes at a time!
