Dolly Dolly writes: 'I wanted to try to recreate the childhood magic of old fairy tales and stories, that somewhere far away feeling. They always seemed to me to occupy places that we could never reach. These vinyl records now appear so quant, the crackle of the needle, the voices - all by seasoned character actors, Jon Pertwee, Arthur Mullard, Clair Bloom and others are trapped in the past, which in-itself is a far away place I suppose. I could've cleaned up the records but I like the crackles. Its random clicks and jump remind you of the physical object playing the music. The Library music interludes also add an element of nostalgia, the unseen fairy tales, unread books, unwatched telly. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.'
