The contents of the record were converted to CD audio tracks as part of the Pioneer Women: early British modern dancers project in 2010. The converted music is stored on the LM/A CD (disc 2) and consists of NM/A/1 side 1 (3.05 minutes) and side 2 (3.08 minutes). There is also a copy of the tracks on a gold CD and they are stored as WAV files on a DVD-ROM.
