Get Sonic with a 50 Years of DOCTOR WHO Vinyl Collection

In 2013, Doctor Who was everywhere. With its 50th anniversary, the show about a Time Lord who traveled in a blue police box and fought off aliens and bad guys of all imagining was at peak popularity and name recognition, and the access to the whole of the archives–as much as was known to exist–was never easier. There was even a huge box set of music tracks dating all the way back to the first episode which aired November 23, 1963. It may be over two years since the 50th, but now fans of spacey radiophonic music can listen to those sweet synthesizers on vinyl with the release of Doctor Who: THE 50th Anniversary Collection 4 LP box set.

50th-Anniversary-VinylFrom Spacelab9, 1000 copies of the set, pressed on “Cyberman Metallic Silver” vinyl, will be available for pre-order exclusively from Think Geek. Spacelab9 will also have an even more limited edition version in Adipose white at a later date. The four LP set is comprised of 50 total tracks (very fitting number) encompassing the first 11 Doctors. Side 1 is the First and Second Doctors (since a lot of music during that time was just BBC library tracks), Side 2 is the Third Doctor, Side 3 the Fourth Doctor, Side 4 the Fifth Doctor, Side 5 the Sixth Doctor, Side 6 the Seventh and Eighth Doctors, Side 7 the Ninth and Tenth Doctors, and Side 8 the Eleventh Doctor. The final track “This Time There’s Three Of Us (The Majestic Tale)” from “Day of the Doctor” is a bonus that wasn’t available in the initial CD or mp3 release.

It’s even got one of my favorite weird pieces of music, from the 1972 story “The Sea Devils.” It’s a truly nuts soundscape composed by Malcolm Clarke and I could listen to it all day:

The set is available now on Think Geek‘s website and will run you $80. In this year without a new episode until Christmas, reliving the first 50 years in auditory form might well be what the–pardon the pun–Doctor ordered.
