The music is performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy. The album reached number 136 on the US Pop Albums chart.

The second side of this LP features Eugene Ormandy conducting Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Ormandy and the aforementioned musicians from Philly also back up Bowie on side one. Critics lauded the album, saying Bowie 'found his most charming guise since Hunky Dory.

The accompaniment from the Philadelphia Orchestra is first rate. The Music On Vinyl re-release includes detailed liner notes on the project by Mary Campbell, specifically geared to "introduce children to the sounds of the individual instruments in the symphony orchestra. " Both Prokofiev and Britten wrote their respective pieces with this aim in mind. 2014 repressing by Music On Vinyl. Pressed in Holland.
