This 1994 compilation by Virgin Records was the second in a four-volume set called A Brief History of Ambient. The first compilation had sold well, so Virgin returned to the concept producing three additional compilations that explored the ambient sound of artists like Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream, and David Sylvain. This second volume included the song Island which Michael Brook and The Edge had worked on and recorded for the soundtrack to the film Captive in 1986. Paul McGuinness brought back the idea of scoring the movie Captive, and it was the first, and remains the only, full length solo album by a member of U2. The album was done as a collaboration with Canadian musician Michael Brook, who had invented the infinite guitar, which the Edge would later use with great success on The Joshua Tree.
