The Secret Value of Daydreaming
US 25 March 1986 Atlantic Records
Secret Value of Daydreaming was Julian's sophomore album. It was quickly
written following a grueling tour and little rest. - Julian Lennon on the
making of the Secret Value of Daydreaming: "Well, with Valotte I
had an idea what I was going to record, you know, because I'd had a lot
of chance...a lot of time to work on the material. But, with this one, I
didn't have so much time, you know. After the tour I went to Barbados for
a month and shipped all my gear down because it was going to be a working
holiday but none of the gear arrived until the last week."
Like Valotte, The Secret Value of Daydreaming was produced by Phil Ramone and engineered by Bradshaw Leigh. The album produced one Top 40 hit (Stick Around) and was certified gold by the RIAA on 22 May 1986.
The same year The Secret Value of Daydreaming was release Julian also appeared in two musicals: Dave Clark's Time and Matt Batt's musical interpretation of the Lewis Carol poem The Hunting of the Snark; and participated in the filming of the Chuck Berry special Hail Hail Rock and Roll.
