Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow…
Back in the early 70s I had a special way of listening to this record. My friend would bring it round, I would take the speakers off the wall, put them on the table and we would stick our heads between them and play it at high volume. It had some great panning stereo effects. Unfortunately, I’ve only managed to track down a mono version but it’s still undeniably great. This is Jon Pertwee ‘singing’ in character as Doctor Who. Jon Pertwee was my doctor; you would never catch him talking in a mockney accent (actually the only thing I have against David Tennant). I’ve had to track down a dodgy internet version of this because my friend Michael had his copy stolen and we’ve both spent years trying to track down a copy. (Somebody who went to Leeds University in the late 70s/early 80s is going to hell.)
mp3: Jon Pertwee - Who Is The Doctor
I recently discovered it’s on this compilation, so I should have a decent copy soon.
