Written and produced at Cut-Throat Studios, Autumn 1981.
Back cover: 'Playable At Any Speed'

This is the first album playable at any speed. Being all-instrumental music, there are no voices to affect the realism of the orchestrations. Thus the album becomes a collection of electronic concertos, each movement being defined by the speed of the turntable. A turntable with speeds of 33, 45 and 78 rpm, creates a different ratio within the pieces, yet maintains a familiar melodic drama.

Saying all this, the record was recorded to produce the sound you hear at 45rpm and any compilations using tracks taken from this record reflect this.

Track times: 33, 45, 78
Track A1: 5:38, 4:10, 2:24
Track A2: 6:18, 4:40, 2:42
Track B1: 9:00, 6:55, 3:59
Track B2: 4:47, 3:33, 2:03
