The collection includes physical copies of tour itineraries, financial statements (tour expenses and accounting, record and publishing royalties, recoupment statements), and legal documents (contracts, correspondence, disputes), as well as digital copies of Bruford's career-related scrapbooks and gig books collected over five decades.

Individual items of note include copies of a Deed of Release for Bruford to move from Yes to King Crimson, modeled after the footballer transfer model to legitimize his transfer from one band to another within the E.G. Management firm; an original manuscript for Bruford's first book, When in Doubt, Roll!; detailed correspondence to the mix engineer Adrian Belew on how to handle the drums for the King Crimson on Broadway live CD (1999); early programming notes on the emerging electronic drum technologies that made Earthworks possible, in particular MIDI and data recording; and equipment and set lists, MIDI mapping and technical information related to Earthworks Live (1994).
