commentary
as stated on the back cover, proceeds from sale of this album went towards the establishment of a permanent archive for the photographic legacy of Oscar Marzaroli, which centres on post-war Glasgow

the tree, bird, fish and bell are elements in the coat of arms of the City of Glasgow, dervied from the supposed miracles of Saint Mungo (Kentigern)

on the LP (and cassette?) the tracks are split evenly between the sides, 1–6 on side 1 and 7–12 on side 2

there may also have been a 7" vinyl promo for this album, with the Big Dish, Blue Nile, Deacon Blue and Eddi Reader tracks on it
