Delia Derbyshire is the undisputed queen of experimental electronics. Her work with the Radiophonic Workshop was nothing short of pioneering and of course her best known work is the Dr Who theme which literally everybody on the planet likes. That's how genius it is.
Here's a 7" by her which is expensive yet sexy. It features two tracks, one of which was written for a TV documentary in 1967 and it features Delias voice and a green lampshade.Anything goes in Radiophonic world! Those crazy cats!

I don't think there's a great deal of point going into the nitty gritty of these two tracks, they're very important pieces indeed but have been featured on the famous BBC Radiophonic Workshop album and the lovely (and now much sought after) Rephlex 4x10" set before so to be honest with you, if you're after this merely for the music then I'd spend your money on something else.
However, such is the cult of Delia that we have been inundated with orders for this delightful little gatefold affair which also includes a sweet fold-out poster. The tracks are some of her more ponderous, otherworldly and eerie affairs that pre-date much dark ambient and drone music by years and, of course, sound utterly out of time and space.
Delia Derbyshire certainly left an indelible stain on the deluded and patriachal music industry. Whereas much music from 1967 now sounds very of its time, it is nigh-on impossible to tell when these mysterious pieces were recorded. They sound like the future even now and bristle with a genuine emotive power. To leave such a legacy of wonderful cherishable sounds like she did is utterly commendable. Actually, ignore what I said earlier, just buy this, we've hardly any left anyway.
