At least, this should provide the most convenient packaging, since it would be dimensionally transcendental.

But much as I love Ron Grainer, you wouldn't really want 8 CDs of honks and wails from the BBC radiophonic workshop, believe me. (Mind you, if it IS that, I'll have to emigrate to another dimension.)

Most of the honks and wails weren't written by Grainer, but I know what you mean. A lot of Old-Who music is, frankly, horrible (the Dudley Simpson scores are easily the best ones, featuring very little honking and absolutely no wailing).

My guess is that it will be a reissue of the Charles Gerhardt recordings with all the extra tracks not originally issued in the LP series in superb sound.

Someone certainly should issue those as a box set, but Lukas already said it's not that.

Please don't. Though it reminds me of Craig Spaulding's quote when we were going through that, "This is worse than when I was in Vietnam."

The blue nightmare and the only major release I ever guessed correctly. In retrospect do you think you guys should have just said "Look, we have a SUPERMAN box, here are the contents. Now you are going to have to leave us alone, there are enormous problems and it wont be out in the near future." ...or was that not ever feasible?

From what I have heard, the Dudley Simpson scores were wiped at the BBC.

The tragic part of the story, even more so than Dudley being taken off the job, is the fact that the BBC destroyed all of the original music tapes of his scores for Doctor Who. Apparently they thought the music alone would never be of interest to anyone! Years after his Dr Who days, Dudley himself requested copies of his old music from the BBC and was notified of this sad fact. The good news is, Mark Ayres of the DW Restoration Team has announced that some of Dudley scores for Dr Who have been recovered, and may one day see the light of day in the form of a CD Release. That's all he can tell us at the moment, but I sincerely hope that we will have the privilege of hearing it soon...

Sorry for resurrecting this back.. but WOW this was nerd mania at its best back then. With the most uncanny guesses and rambling (including that of mine) makes for an amusing revisiting of the hype surrounding that infamous-famous Blue Box thread! Labels must be cringing with such hype mania like as in SAE "this is worse than when I was in Vietnam" !! some near guesses and some wrong guesses actualy came to materialise such as the SPARTACUS box set.
