The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, set up in 1958, was originally created as a sound effects unit for BBC Radio and TV programs.

Pioneering new forms of drama during the late 1950s & early 60s demanded innovative & original use of music & sound. Their early explorations into sound drew on the principles of musique concrete, early tape manipulation techniques & primitive oscillators & tone circuits built by technicians at the workshop. The vast body of work that emerged between 1960 & 1997 has influenced generations of musicians both within electronica & more widely in the Rock, Progressive & Pop field. These  two  records,  recorded  in  1968  &  1975  respectively,  were  released  at  the  height  of  The  Radiophonic Workshop’s  influence.  They  showcase  the  dawning  of  processed  sound,  treated  sounds  &  sound  design. This is the first time it has been made available on vinyl in its first and original form.
