Random Acts Of Happiness is a live album by Earthworks, with a new line-up, featuring Tim Garland. The material on the album is both old and new. In a May 2004 interview, Bruford explained that re-visiting older pieces was Garland's idea: "That was a request from Tim. He grew up with some of the Bruford/Holdsworth stuff and said, 'We've got to do some of that.' I said, 'Not really because the sound of it isn't going to work in this context,' but we did find two or three pieces that did sit well."

Track 1 is from Earthworks, Track 6 is from Bill Bruford's Feels Good To Me, 10 & 11 are from Bruford's One Of A Kind, 3 and 12 are from Tim Garland/Geoff Keezer/Joe Locke's Storms Nocturnes. However, there is also new material here, including Track 4 which began as Hamilton's live spot.
