" Red 7" Vinyl/7" Gatefold Sleeve/Pull-out Poster. Originally pressed in August 2014 on black vinyl, this is the repress on red vinyl. Delia Derbyshire's work at the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop in the 60's was recognised initially for her realisation of the now iconic Doctor Who Theme which was written for the show by Ron Grainer. More recently though, she has been celebrated for her own compositions and experiments at what was then the cutting edge of electronic music. Here are two of her pieces: the B-Side written for a TV documentary in 1967, Blue Veils and Golden Sands. On the A side is The Delian Mode, which was used as incidental music during The Sky At Night in 1969. "
