Delia Derbyshire’s ‘The Delian Mode’ was originally used as incidental music for ‘The Sky At Night’ in 1969. It’s backed here by ‘Blue Veils And Golden Sands’, which was written for a TV documentary in 1967 and used Delia’s own voice and a handy green BBC lampshade. “I analysed the sound into all of its partials and frequencies, and took the 12 strongest, and reconstructed the sound on the Workshop’s famous 12 oscillators to give a whooshing sound,” she explained. “So the camels rode off into the sunset with my voice in their hooves and a green lampshade on their backs.”

This limited edition magenta vinyl pressing comes in a gatefold sleeve with a poster.
