The BBC Radio Workshop was an early resource for the latest in electronic music.

This was in 1958, when synths were still science fiction and the general public had no idea about computer-generated music (or the looming machine takeover). These beautiful early experiments will be reissued on lilac vinyl with liner notes, out on June 24 on Silva Screen.

For some more early electronics check out a 476 track compilation that sums up the history of electronic music here.
