There isn't any Oram or Derbyshire to be had but this compilation of BBC Radiophonic Workshop music still delivers the goods. The record is mostly split between quirky off kilter pop such as "Geraldine", "The Panel Beaters" and "The World Of Science" and the more serious and darker moods encompassed within "Veils And Mirrors", "Adagio", "Accentric" and "Nenuphar". From the remaining tracks the ethereal "Kitten's Lullaby" stands out from the pack along with a weird little sound effect that I presume was created specifically for The Goon Show. While far from being a definitive collection of Workshop music this is still a fascinating journey and well worth the trip. Credit goes to Slothy for the original rip.

What has gone wrong with RS lately, seems we don't seem to get a constant download stream of data and it takes much longer to fully download anything.

That's pretty much been my experience forever sadly. I've noticed Mediafire has been quite bad in recent times as well. Guess we'll have to live with it until some more file lockers spring up and take the load off.

i don't worry that much because there was a time before blogs and i bougth all the vinyls that i want/needed/afford/can find and still buyin' it, so who cares? lot of music will be lost for the future generations but i think they would not care, because this music we love will be really old fashioned then and just a few old dudes will listening to it.
