Product description


Picking straight up from Volume One, the Pertwee years and the transition into the scarf-wearing Baker are covered. It was perhaps the greatest period of change for the series: colour, Earth-bound setting, a greater sense of continuity and behind-the-scenes, a ceaseless experimentation to be at the forefront of electronic music and sound design by the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop. Chiefly responsible for the beeps and squeaks were Dudley Simpson and Brian Hodgson. Their work from "The Mind Of Evil" and "The Claws Of Axos", together with Delia Derbyshire's "Inferno", make up the album's first half. The chronology then passes on to Malcolm Clarke's revolutionary dabblings with the "Delaware" (a room-filling modular analogue synthesiser) for "The Sea Devils". Like Volume One, there's more electronic history than musical artistry to be appreciated, and this is especially true of the Sound Effects suite which includes great titles like "Nerva Beacon Infrastructure & T-Mat Couch". Finishing on the demos that landed Peter Howell further work in the show's third decade, the album closes with his long-lastingly stunning re-working of the classic title theme. --Paul Tonks
