Li de la Russe & Nikki St. George are in fact Delia Derbyshire & Brian Hodgson of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and Unit Delta Plus. They are credited as simply Russe and St. George on the sleeve and label.

These recordings were used in the Thames television series The Tomorrow People (1973-1979). Side A, tracks 1 to 9 and all of side B appear on the Trunk Records release The Tomorrow People (Original Television Music) [JBH 017].
