Hardback Edition"I've never succeeded in keeping a diary past the 6th of January before (so I know a lot about the early Januaries of my life), but at the end of 1994 I made a resolution to keep one for 1995. When I started I had no intention at all of publishing it. It wasn't until mid-October that I started to think that, with its mishmash of ideas, observations, admirations, speculations and grumbles, I might be able to make it a book. The diary also covers four recording projects caught at different times in their evolution. The project with James (whose "Laid" and "Wah Wah" albums I'd produced two years earlier); the David Bowie project which became "Outside the Passengers" record; a collaboration between members of U2 and myself with occasional visitors. And "Spinner', which was based on a soundtrack I'd made for Derek Jarman's last film. Of course, a lot of these entries were written after a day's work, and workdays can be good or bad. The good ones produce a glow of congratulation, the bad ones a frenzy of recrimination. As a result some of my best friends - those people with whom I work most closely - occasionally come in for my grumblings. I assume they'll ignore them as usual". (Brian Eno).
