Tracks A1 to A8 are presented as one continuous track with dialogue throughout by Geoffrey Woodruff.

The record was issued in both sepia and black and white sleeves. "Virtute Et Industrial" is the City of Bristol's motto. Track A7 is a recording of The Harry Brown, a battered old boat, which meandered up and down the River Avon until the late 1970s, and which was famously (in Bristol, at least) immortalised on a postcard with the legend, "River Avon Driftwood".
