This review is from: Doctor Who At The Radiophonic Workshop Vol. 1: The Early Years 1963-1969 (Audio CD)
It should be called a sound effects CD as there are only a few pieces of music, and mostly the Who theme from the two different Doctors of the time. The real meat of this package is the sound effects, and these are particularly great if you happen to be a Who fanatic who dabbles in home movies. The background Dalek spacecraft sounds are excellent, as are much of the 'stingers', bleeps, heartbeats and other random bits of sound that you'll remember from the episodes in question. A particular highlight of mine is the painful Cyberman invasion signal from 'The Invasion'. It is a haunting piece and guaranteed to invoke insanity after prolonged listening. The only reason this doesn't reach 4 or 5 stars is that it isn't a musical score as aforementioned, but a sound effect collection. Don't let that out you off, however, as the sounds are spot on.
