The track listing is identical to the studio LP; each of the album's songs has its own corresponding promotional video. It received TV airings on the Blue Jean Network in 1980 among others, with releases on VHS in 1979, then later on the "Out of the Blue Tour" Live at Wembley/Discovery 1998 DVD/VHS. The video album was produced because Jeff Lynne refused to go on tour to promote the album as was customary but instead presented it in the relatively new video format. This helped launch the nascent long-form music video market. The videos marked the last to feature the band's cellists, Melvyn Gale and Hugh McDowell.
