This album features the earliest finished compositions by composer-pianist James Siddons. These five works were composed in 1965-66, when the composer was 16 and 17 years old, and scored in manuscript notation then, except "Improvisation in Blues," which was improvised on the composer's piano at home and recorded on a 1964 Sony tape deck using 7-inch tape reels and the tape deck's own microphone. This tape recording, and the manuscript scores, were placed in storage for over fifty years, at which time the tape recording was found to have good enough quality to be converted to digital format. This digital recording and the manuscript scores were scored in Sibelius in 2020.

The five compositions are:
Mix 'n' Match (1965; the first finished composition of James Siddons)
Prelude to the Unknown
Solitude and the Gentle Wind
Valse and Episode
Improvisation in Blues
