The specialty printer recently finished and delivered DANNY CAREY’S coffee table-style book entitled “REMEMBER THE FUTURE.” Along with Danny’s essay on collecting vintage synthesizers, the limited edition hardcover contains wonderful glossy full-color photos (by Duncan Blake) of Danny’s impressive collection of synths (many being modular behemoths!), electronic percussion and related electronics. The book also contains articles by synth experts and historians, including BRIAN KEHEW, JACK DANGERS, DARREL JOHANSEN, CHRIS PITMAN and PETER GRENADER. Besides editing the book (with assistance by Greg Taylor), I (Blair MacKenzie Blake) have also contributed a few articles about my own experience with analog circuitry. Each of the first 167 copies comes with a decorative card signed by Danny Carey.

Great looking book. Well Done Danny.
However I didn't get the signed card that was in the description.
Kind of a bummer.

really great book - very special. disappointed no autograph came with it, but i bought taking that risk. i'd update the description indicating no more autographs available, so you dont disappoint future purchasers. again great book!
Awesome Synth Compendium

High quality, high gloss pages in this hardcover book. Plenty of content and backstory here to read, a real conversation piece. I didn't get an autographed card from Danny, but this book is well worth it for the content alone.

Book is of great quality and neat to read. Every time I buy a new book here, I have always been satisfied. The most undersold aspect here is the amount of care that is put in shipping (truly above and beyond).

I find the subject book very interesting.
Although the it is not a huge book nevertheless it is very informative not only concerning Danny's personal collection but a good history of analogue instruments also.
The photographs are of very good quality too.
I must also recommend a couple of DVD's too, 'I Dream of Wires' and a documentary concerning Robert Moog simply titled 'Moog'.
In summary i highly recommend this book if you have any interest at all in the history of electronic music. Nice.

I received my book the other day. It's amazing! The quality of this hard back book is amazing. The quality far surpasses what I was expecting. The pictures are also amazing as is the text. Anyone interested in the synthesizer should give this a read. As an added bonus I got the autographed card from Danny as well. Wich is also awesome, since he is one of my favorite drummers and we are both originally from Kansas too lol! Highly recommended! Don't wait buy it now before they are gone!
