Description

Delia Derbyshire is best known as the woman who created the sound of the original Doctor Who theme. This one piece is so globally famous that it has overshadowed the wide ranging work of one of the most creative women working in the 1960s and 70s. Delia collaborated with many of the most significant figures of the era and was admired by many more. Her story involves such names as Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Pink Floyd, Anthony Newley, Frankie Howard and The Rolling Stones, in addition to work with the National Theatre, seminal electronic innovators and, of course, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.Since her death in 2001, Derbyshire has gained cult icon status and her influence over artists who weren't even born when she made some of her groundbreaking recordings has never been stronger. This is a rare library album Delia recorded with Brian Hodgson (the man who created the sound of the Tardis) and Don Harper in 1972. It was released in a 500 only pressing last year and sold out immediately. This is a re-press of 500. Comes as a see through, red pressing, 180 gramms vinyl. Pretty expensive, but, in the end well worth!
