Polarity reversed

Yet another second hand mix, Reversing the Polarity of the Neutron Flow was originally put together for the Very Good Plus forum as my response to the question ‘Dr Who Music: Any Good?’

Focusing on the years 1963-1974, the mix features all of the usual suspects, plus some of the library artists used in the very earliest episodes of the show.

Originally broadcast on The Garden Of Earthly Delights internet radio show, I am very grateful to Shane and all his listeners for their interest, and urge readers of this weblog and lovers of interesting music to check out the programmes for themselves. We (Unmann-Wittering that is) will also be recording a session for the show early next year.

The mix title is derived from the Third Doctor’s all purpose answer to anything technical, a phrase invented by writer Terrance Dicks to save Jon Pertwee from tying himself in knots with techno babble. The phrase itself is almost completely meaningless. Get it here, full tracklisting in comments.
