An open-ended interview is a way of gathering information from people. An interviewer asks questions of a participant, who then answers those questions. The interview is considered open-ended because even though the questions can be scripted, the interviewer usually doesn't know what the contents of the response will be. These interviews may have some questions to gather basic factual data on participants such as age and gender, but usually they focus more on the participant's thoughts, feelings, experiences, knowledge, skills, ideas and preferences. Open-ended interviews generally don't provide data that are quantifiable. This doesn't mean the data are useless; it just means that the interviews aren't particularly helpful in instances where concrete statistics are required. Also, because participants can answer however they like for most questions, it is difficult to constrain the time of the interview.
The discography of Savage Garden, an Australian duo made up of singer Darren Hayes and producer Daniel Jones, contains two studio albums, one compilation album, thirteen singles and four video albums. According to the duo's manager and reported by Billboard, the two studio albums released by the duo have sold 23 million copies worldwide. Savage Garden was re-issued with a bonus disc of remixes titled The Future of Earthly Delites in Australia in April 1998.

Australian pop duo Savage Garden have taken the world by storm without the record company hype and career-establishing game plan that is often the background for pop-oriented acts. Daniel Jones comes from a long line of musicians. When he was ten, he was already playing the keyboard and drums in bars and hotels. The album sold 11 million copies globally and earned Savage Garden ten Australian ARIA Awards. Hayes and Jones dealt with their success in their individual ways. Singer Hayes amicably ended his marriage, moved to a New York apartment, and rubbed shoulders with his peers. Daniel Jones stayed in Brisbane wishing he could just write songs and make music in the studio. The second album, Affirmation, was basically written by phone and computer from their separate corners of the world.
Savage Garden’s second and final album Affirmation is a record Hayes still describes as one of his proudest moments. Trailed by I Knew I Loved You, the album deals with the breakdown of Hayes’ marriage and coming to terms with being gay ( before then it was known but never discussed ) as well as the end of Savage Garden, which had been decided before the album's release. He recalls: A song called The Lover After Me is about the fact that I’d ask my wife to take me back and my friends telling me what I was doing was unfair.

This promotional interview CD was recorded in 1996 (possibly in December) and consists of Darren and Daniel discussing each track from the Australian version of their debut album, and answering other questions relating to the music and the people behind it. There is no music on this CD. The interview was probably conducted by Leonie Messer, a PR agent working for Roadshow. The CD appears to be designed to allow a radio announcer to ask the prompts, and use the CD for the answers, as though the local DJ was conducting the actual interview.
It is unknown if this CD was issued to radio stations, but copies were given away by "Savage Garden Fanzine" based in Brisbane. The title of the disc as printed on the disc itself is "Open-Ended Interview". Most copies were issued in a plain slimline CD case with no cover, but copies given away by the fanzine had a custom cover, designed and printed by the fanzines's staff. The title is listed as "Interview Disc" on the fanzine cover. The individual track titles listed come from the fanzine insert and are the questions or prompts for Darren and Daniel to follow in the interview. Copies not given away by the fanzine, since they do not contain the cover insert, instead come with printed letter size paper documents listing the individual track titles.
Some copies of this disc were mispressed and actually contain the tracks for the "Dance Remixes" promo CD. Most copies of the mispressing were destroyed, but some made their way into the hands of collectors. These mispressed CDs can be identified by examining the inner hub. The catalog number will appear as "SMA 31470", the catalog number of the "Dance Remixes" CD.
