9/10 Ant Staff review, 01 July 2010
This is a very special treat for fans of early electronic music. These tracks have been kicking around on CD for a while but until now have never before been available on vinyl. This lady is basically the founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop yet for some reason her work is lesser known than Delia Derbyshire and co., which is unbelievable considering she created a ton of astonishing and innovative sounds from 1959 right through to the late 70's. There really are some fantastic sounds on here, clearly ahead of their time. what I like about this set is that there really doesn't appear to be any sort of sequence to the tracks and so it's one of those records you can just dip into now and then just to hear some crazy sounds. what does strike me is how a lot of the sounds a basically functional (i.e. for television/radio etc.), but taken out of that context they just sound plain weird and a lot of them are really quite dark. A total wet dream of a record that is highly recommended. Oh and check out the Lego advert on there!
