A quick rundown of the sections
Clicking on the small square graphic for each year group will take you to an index for those years...
Secret Value of Daydreaming... Julian's sophomore album which was
quickly written following a grueling tour and little rest... The rush
on this album cost Julian dearly both in terms of his personal well
being as well as his musical career...
Mr. Jordan... an experimental-ish comeback album after taking a
much needed break in Switzerland to recuperate from the rush to stardom
as well as write... unfortunately the album was not promoted well...
Help Yourself... Comeback take two... Help Yourself scores Julian
a #1 hit with "Saltwater" everywhere with the exception of
the US... Again very little promotion was given to Julian by Atlantic
- 1997... Disappointed with the lack of support by those who were
supposed to be helping his career, Julian basically waits out his recording
contract with Atlantic Records. He does a few songs for movies as well
as a few movie cameos but does not produce any solo albums...
Photograph Smile... A long awaited solo album which is critically
acclaimed as being Julian's best work ever is released on Julian's own
label "Music From Another Room." A promotional tour
follows however, yet again promotion is lacking... and though the critics
loved the album, it received little airtime...
And here we are... though Julian has mentioned releasing another
album little is known of his future plans and exactly how long it will
be for that album to materialize... Julian's mum Cynthia painted a set
of 4 portraits of John for Julian's birthday and later sells lithographs
of them to the public...
