INTRODUCTION

        This document is a reasonably comprehensive discography (compiled
and edited by Wesley Chun) of the Alan Parsons Project and related groups,
but not to the extent of Ambrosia, Pilot, etc.  The prominent artists
featured in this discography include:

    -- Alan Parsons Project
    -- Andrew Powell and the Philharmonia Orchestra
    -- any Eric Woolfson projects, i.e. Freudiana, Gaudi, etc.
    -- Alan Parsons "solo"

        At the end of this discography, there are various miscellaneous
sections devoted to albums related to the music of the APP.

        There is no Alan Parsons Project Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
list as far as I know.  An on-going process is creating an HTML version
of this discography.

        The format of this discography is modeled after the ones main-
tained by David Datta.  The information included is from the covers of
the various recorded items and the liner notes/booklets included in the
Compact Discs and Long-Playing records, and information provided by
individuals listed a few paragraphs below.


        Track listings are displayed in the following format:

CD or
ACTUAL  LISTED
TIME    TIME    TRACK NAME                      LEAD VOCAL(s)

x:xx    y:yy    Song Title                      I. M. Singing

tt:11 (tt:22, zz tracks, DDD)

        Album times are: the total MUSIC TIME, i.e. "tt:11", which is ac-
cumulated track time, and in parentheses, the total ALBUM TIME, i.e. "tt:22"
which includes pauses between tracks.   Basically, tt:11 is the sum of all
the "y:yy" tracks, and tt:22 is the sum of all the "x:xx" tracks.  There are
some instances where there are *3* times given: actual (measured), print-
listed (in the inlay or back cover), and CD-listed (time listed on the CD
itself) times.  Also given is the number of tracks, the Society of Profes-
sional Audio Recording Services [http://www.spars.com/spars/index.html]
(SPARS) code [usually AAD, ADD, or DDD] -- and finally, track year-span if
the album is a compilation.

        The times for the entire albums were obtained by pausing the CD
player before track 1, and obtaining the total time remaining.  There is
usually a 2-3 second discrepancy between the total remaining time and the
total time given in the liner notes or when the disc is first inserted into
the CD player.

        Release date and chart information is provided when/if they are
available (i.e. as long as I can find them.)  Any dates in the discography
follow the American format of MM/DD/YY.  (Sorry for any inconvenience!)

        Any new and various additional information will be incorporated
into future editions of this discography (with a little help from the rest
of you)!  Additional information is welcomed, especially instrumentation
information on the albums.  Information with question marks is not verified,
so if you have any input regarding additions or corrections, please send
them to me.  Also let me know your concerns regarding *any* issue pertaining
to this discography.  I can be contacted at:

        This discography is dedicated to all past, present, and future
musical works, themes, and ideas of the Alan Parsons Project, as well as
to those who follow their music closely -- we, the fans of the APP, whom
Alan warmly regards as "Projectologists."  I hope you find this document
as useful to you as it is for me.  -- ed.

    Liner Notes:         (future)

    Notes:

    (a) "Tales..." was re-released by Polygram Records under the Casablanca
        Records label in 1982 after the demise of 20th Century Records.
        This edition was devoid of the intricate liner notes on Edgar
        Allan Poe, but with a picture of Alan with circulating 1" audio
        tape reel around his neck... a.k.a. a cheap repackage and resell.

    (b) During the summer of 1987, Alan Parsons (and merry crew) remixed
        and remastered this album for compact disc.  In this revamping pro-
        cess, the length of the original album was increased by approxi-
        mately 5.12%, or 2:11.  New additions include:  new Ian guitar solos,
        additional synthesizers by Alan, and narration by the late Orson
        Welles.  This "new" album made its debut in November, 1987 under
        Polygram's Mercury Records label with all the original artwork,
        plus additional liner notes.

    (c) In March, 1994, Mobile Fidelity released its "Original Master
        Recording" of "Tales..." on their ANADISQ 2000 LP series.  The
        album was transferred from the master using the GAIN system.

    (d) In June, 1994, an UltraDisc II 24K gold CD version was issued.
        This is the compact disc debut of the original 1976 album.

    Liner Notes:

        I Robot...  The story of the rise of the machine
        and the decline of man, which paradoxically coincided
        with his discovery of the wheel... and a warning that
        his brief dominance of this planet will probably end,
        because man tried to create robot in his own image.

    Notes:

        The MFSL CD release has a misprint of the title of
        the last track:  "Genesis Ch. 1 V/:32"

        Here are some notes regarding the 24-bit/96 kHz
        digital remastering of IR on Digital Audio Disc
        (playable only on DVD players):

            I Robot - The man behind the recording of
            "Dark Side of the Moon" is none other than
            Alan Parsons. If you want to hear what is his
            definitive recording and a bit of the Dark
            Side then this is it. I ROBOT was produced and
            engineered by Alan at Abbey Road Studios and is
            an audiophile's dream recording. The 24/96 DAD
            reveals ever nuance of the 1/4" analog original
            master used for the transfer with Alan present
            at the mastering sessions with Bernie Grundman.

        this album seeks to amplify the haunting echoes of the
        past and explore the unsolved mysteries of the present.
        Pyramid... the last remaining wonder of the ancient
        world.

    Notes:

    M. J Vasko has obtained a Test Pressing of this album dated October
    17, 1980, about a month before the public release.  Included with it was
    the following letter (meant for music reviewers?):

        Dear Writer:
 
            In subject -- the obsession of gambling -- and in musical
            execution, -The Turn Of A Friendly Card- is perhaps the most
            vivid and intriguing album yet by thematic-rock's major
            exponents, The Alan Parsons Project.  We feel that it
            contains all the scope that made their -I Robot- a perennial
            classic of progressive rock.  Please give it a listen, and
            let us know what you think.
 
                                                   Regards,
 
                                                   The Arista Publicity Dept.

    Liner Notes:

        Andrew Powell, who has been an integral part of The
        Alan Parsons Project since its inception, has at last
        made his own album.  It's a rare treat to hear the
        music we know so well interpreted totally through his
        ears and with the help of such a fine orchestra.  Best
        of luck.
                        -- Alan Parsons & Eric Woolfson

    Notes:

    The US release of this album features the artist and album title
    display using Scrabble¨ tiles.  There are obviously come copy-
    right implications as some of the European releases indicate:

    (a) UK -- Uses black Scrabble tiles for both title and artist
    (b) DE -- Uses black Scrabble tiles for title, red for artist
    (x) SP -- "And now for something completely different:"
                serene picture of clouds, snow, and buildings
                with an airplane flying overhead... "on air?"   :)

    The 1997 Dutch rerelease of this album by Disky is called
    "The Alan Parsons Project played by Andrew Powell".

[ All but the Disky rerelease are long out-of-print... you'll have to
pick through used record and CD stores, and/or conventions to find this
one.  -- ed. ]

    Note:
    
        The original release of this album has been discontinued by
        Atlantic and is no longer available.  A pair of compact disc
        versions have been made, one a bootleg of the original release
        originating from Italy, and the "official" re-release from
        GNP/Crescendo Records late 1995-early 1996.

    Bootleg CD Notes:  In 1992, this album was made available on CD
        as a limited edition (of 2000) from Genoa Records of Italy.
        This release has been confirmed to be non-official and not
        granted by Warner Brothers or Atlantic, a bootleg.
        
        The manufacturer/distributor provide a false address, as veri-
        fied indirectly by the a member of the APP mailing list.  Upon
        scanning the "Film Score Monthly" magazine, it was found that
        a subscriber from Italy checked the address and found it to be
        bogus.  Additionally, Steve Martin sent a postcard to that
        address which was returned-to-sender.

        The liner cover consists of the Ladyhawke album cover, i.e.
        black with Isabeau's face on top-center-right, above Isabeau-
        as-a-hawk perched on Phillippe's head.  The back of the liner
        is the same as the back of jewel box, with Navarre riding a
        horse under the midday sun.  This is the same as the thea-
        trical move poster.

        Inside the liner notes on the left are the track titles and
        credits as found on the album.  The right side features the
        movie credits starting with "WARNER BROS. and TWENTIETH
        CENTURY FOX present...," and concluding with (c) 1985 Warner
        Bros. & Twentieth Century Fox.  All Rights Reserved.
        RELASED BY WARNER BROS.  A WARNER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY"
        (misspelling of "released" is taken verbatim).  The liner on
        the rear of the jewel box features both the track titles and
        movie credits along with the following at the bottom:

    "Manufactured by Genoa Records  Via Agazio 36C-7 16151 Genoa, Italy"

        The spine/edge of the liner states:  "LADYHAWKE" with a cata-
        log number of GRCD-1014.  However, on the compact disc itself,
        under "Genoa", a flattened treble clef, and "Records," the
        catalog number is GRLE-CD1014.  The rest of the CD has the
        title, and track listings.  The ring of text along the edge
        of the CD (twice consecutively) states:
        
        "All rights of the producer and of the owner of the work
        reproduced reserved.  Unauthorized copying, hiring, lending,
        public performance and broadcasting of this record prohibited!
        Made in Italy.  (c)1985 (p)1993".

        On both the rear liner and the compact disc, the following
        text appears:  Limited Edition [BOX] of 2,000".  The empty
        [BOX] on the rear liner is written in with silver highlighter
        with the issue number (of 2000), and the [BOX] on the CD is
        purple and is also written with the issue number in silver
        highlighter.  (Mine is 959.)    !)

    GNP/Crescendo CD Notes:  A new and official re-release of this
        album has been released GNP/Crescendo in November 1995, and
        to the general retail public in January 1996.

    GNP Release Liner Notes:
        
        I was both surprised and excited to receive a phone call from
        my manager, Bob Buziak, early in 1984 telling me that Richard
        Donner wanted me to fly to Los Angeles to look at his new film
        "Ladyhawke" with a view to writing the score.

    Note:
    
    The word "stereotomy" is supposed to describe the technique of
    cutting solids, as stones, to specified forms and dimensions.
    Inspiration for this word came from Poe's "Murder at the Roe
    Morgue."

    Liner Notes:

        This album was inspired by the life and works of
        Antonio Gaudi (1852-1926), a Catalan architect
        whose grand conception, the Sagrada Familia Cathedral
        in Barcelona, involves a construction timetable
        which will run for hundreds of years.  He is buried
        in the crypt of his unfinished masterpiece.

    [The 260 171 release of this CD's got some interesting
        misspellings on the disc:  apparently, this album is
        produced by "Alan Parson" and the executive producer
        is "Eric Woolison".  Also, the catalog number en-
        scribed by the manufacturer on the inner ring of the
        disc is the old catalog number, 258 084.  This trait
        appears over most Euro versions of APP albums.  -- ed.]

    Notes:

    From 1988-1990, Eric Woolfson worked on his *own* "project" --
    compositions dedicated to the life of Sigmund Freud.  Eventually,
    the idea blossomed into a musical.  All of the music and lyrics
    were written by Eric, with the exception of an instrumental piece
    which Alan contributed.  According to Alan, this "project" began
    as just the next APP album.  When all was said and done, two
    Freudiana albums emerged.  This Freudiana studio album was released
    exclusively for Europe by EMI in 1990.  See below for the Freudiana
    German original cast musical soundtrack, released by EMI Electrola.

    According to the Avenue, this work has had negative impacts on the
    relationships between Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson as well as
    between Eric Woolfson and Brian Brolly.
    
    Eric wanted to continue pursuing the musical production business
    while Alan was content on working in the studio and on the road,
    something Eric shyed away from.  Alan and Eric went their separate
    ways (nŽ lives?) resulting in the end of the "Project."
    
    Litigation ensued between the latter pair which resulted in all
    rights to the work and music of the "Freudiana" musical granted to
    Mr. Brolly, and consequently left Mr. Woolfson in a state of
    financial bankruptcy.

    Earlier versions of this studio album (circa 1990-1991) were devoid
    of the "by ERIC WOOLFSON" [by]line located between the Freudiana logo
    and track listings on the rear cover and back of the inlay.

    Liner Notes:

        Freudiana (froid'i-ana) n.  1. The generic term encompassing
        the archaeological relics, books and *objets d'art* collected
        by SIGMUND FREUD (1856-1939).  Contemplation of these items
        is known to have inspired many of his ideas.  2. The term may
        be broadly used to include any facet of his life, his works
        and their derivatives.

        FREUDIANA is the brain child of songwriter and musician Eric
        Woolfson who hit upon the idea of researching the life and
        works of Sigmund Freud with a view to their musical potential.
        Fully aware that doing justice to genius of such magnitude
        would involve the highest degree of committment and applica-
        tion, he set out to retrace Freud's footsteps and explore his
        realms in what turned out to be a voyage of self-discovery.
        What resulted was not the story of Freud but rather an image
        of the composer seen through a Freudian mirror.

        Fortunately there was much biographic information available
        to add clarity to the aura of mystique surrounding this
        extraordinary man.  Freud's homes in London and Vienna, now
        museums, were truly inspirational.  Literary source included
        Freud's classic cases whose real identities he concealed by
        use of names such as Wolfman, Ratman, Dora, Little Hans and
        Schreber, the Judge.  In addition, Freud's writings on his
        discovery of the 'unconscious', his well[-]known theories such
        as the 'Oedipus Complex', the 'Ego' and the 'Id' and his great
        masterpiece, 'The Interpretation of Dreams' all served as
        springboards for musical ideas.  Also enlightening were
        Freud's own influences such as the French hypnotist M‰itre
        Jean-Martin Charcot and Freud's group of followers in Vienna
        who became known as the 'The Wednesday Club'.

        After the initial research and development of the songs,
        Eric went into the studio with his long time 'project'
        partner Alan Parsons[,] and for three years[,] they worked
        on this recording with the help of literally hunderds of
        musicians and vocalists.

        About halfway through the recording process, the material was
        revealed to[ ]theatrical producer Brian Brolly[,] who was
        associated with many landmark musicals such as 'Cats' and
        'Phantom of the Opera'.  With Brian's encouragement and help,
        they developed the convept still further into a musical and
        the first stage production of 'FREUDIANA' has its world
        premiere in December 1990 in Vienna at the historic 'Theater
        an der Wien'.

        Although both this recording and the stage musical emanate
        from the same source and share the same musical compositions,
        they are quite distinct and different in both style and approach.

    Notes:
    
    The holusion image appearing in Blue/Yellow/Green patterns found
    in the liner notes is identical to the image on the regular issue
    of the compact disc, but in Red/Yellow/Orange patterns instead.

    The Gold CD release has no holusion on the disc.  The disc is
    empty except for "Try Anything Once" and "Alan Parsons" written
    around the edge of the disc.  There are no track listings or
    times listed either.  It is VERY plain.  In fact, if you hold
    the disc up to a light source, it is transparent.

    Liner Notes (gold CD version):

(from sticker)
            A SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION OF ALAN'S NEW ALBUM
                 ON A 24K GOLD CD WITH 20-BIT MAPPING

                             Includes:
                            TURN IT UP
                    OH LIFE [THERE MUST BE MORE]

        THE ULTIMATE ALBUM TO TEST THE LIMITS OF YOUR CD PLAYER

(from inside left cover)
    This disc is the product of three exciting technologies designed
    to enhance the digital listening experience and increase the
    quality of the disc itself.

    First, *Try Anything Once* is a DDD recording.  The DDD notation,
    of course, means that the music has spent its entire recorded life
    in the digital domain, from the studio to your compact disc player,
    ensuring the highest possible digital fidelity.

    Second, it has been manufactured on a gold disc.  In this
    fabrication process, a super-fine layer of 24K gold coats the
    reflective metallic surface of the disc itself, guaranteeing long
    life without any possibility of oxidation or deterioration of the
    playing surface.

    The third is a digital noise shaping process called Super Bit
    Mapping (SBM[tm]), developed by Sony.  SBM[tm] creatively adapts
    the 20-bit "words" used in digital tape studio recordings to the
    16-bit "language" of CD's.  It does this by processing each 20-bit
    "word" (actually an electronic "sample" of a waveform) through an
    algorithm designed to minimize noise in the most sensitive portion
    of our hearing range.  The result is not only lower noise, but
    reduced harmonic distortion, a greatly expanded sense of
    atmospherics, sonic "warmth" and more detailed musical perspective.

(from inside right cover)
    From The Beatles' Abbey Road, Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The
    Moon and his work with the likes of Paul McCartney, George
    Harrison, The Hollies and Al Stewart, to all the classic albums
    that have carried his name, Alan Parsons has helped shape the
    sound of rock as we know it today.  As the guiding force behind
    The Alan Parsons Project, albums like *I Robot, Pyramid, Eve, The
    Turn Of A Friendly Card, Eye In The Sky* and *Ammonia Avenue*
    became recognized as some of the most consistently innovative and
    adventurous music of any time.

    *Try Anything Once,* the new album from Alan Parsons, is the
    result of 100 days of recording at his state-of-the-art home
    studio in Sussex, England.  The new album, his first in six years,
    features vocal performances by Parsons staples like *Chris Thompson
    (Manfred Mann' Earth Band)* and *Eric Stewart (10cc)*, as well as
    from newcomers *David Pack (Ambrosia)* and *Jacqui Copeland (Duran
    Duran)*.  Joining Parsons to form the core band are mainstays *Ian
    Bairnson (guitar), Andrew Powell (keyboards)* and *Stuart Elliot[t]
    (drums)*, all of whom collaborated with Alan on the songwriting.

    Though the albums soars far and wide lyrically, offering reflections
    on life, fate and the soul from a variety of perspectives, Parsons
    cautions that it's not a unified conceptual statement in the way
    some of "The Project's" works were.  *"There isn't one consistent
    theme,"* he notes.  *"If you find one, I'd like to know about it."*
    What remains consistent, of course, is Alan's trademark of richly
    layered, challenging instrumentation that reveals new dimensions,
    and surprises, with each repeated listening.

    *Try Anything Once* is the culmination, and continued evolution,
    of an extraordinary career.  And, what better way to hear it in
    all its sonic brilliance than on this bit of incredible technology.
    So, sit back, and enjoy a truly astounding aural voyage.

(from rear)
    This recording incorporates Sony's revolutionary 20-bit "super bit
    mapping" process which reproduces music with unprecedented clarity
    and accuracy.  In addition to SBM, this disc features a pure 24-
    karat gold reflective surface and deluxe packaging.

    Notes:

    2 CDs for the price of 1!  One CD consists of the audio album and
    the other is a CD-ROM bonus (PCs/Macs) multimedia treat with audio/
    video samplers (.AVI, Quicktime .MOV, .WAV, and RealAudio .RAM)!
    The CD-ROM will be a song-led program following the same theme as
    the music CD. There will be info about aviation (theme), trivia,
    about the band, video clips, and more.
    
    On the 20th anniversary year of the first Project album (ToMaI)
    it seems fitting that this will be released on a Polygram record
    label, at least in America. (I am, of course, excluding non-Project
    albums such as all the Andrew Powell and Eric Woolfson projects.)
    It looks like we have come full circle and back to Polygram again.
    Unfortunately, with the distribution power of PGD, it seems a waste
    that River North's Marketing is so extremely limited and lacking.

    The album is also supposed to be released in the new DTS/HDS
    multichannel digital surround format.  This is *not* compatible
    with current two-channel 44.1KHz compact disc players and will
    require the purchase of new hardware, which will be made available
    sometime this year.  The DTS home page is http://www.dtstech.com/.
    A specific press release on the AP/On Air DTS release is also
    available from DTS at this URL:
    
            http://www.dtstech.com/consumer/hds-5-22-2.html

    River North Records is a relatively small label in the Polygram
    food chain.  They currently have Peter Cetera of Chicago fame on
    board in addition to AP.  They can be reached at:

    2001 BUTTERFIELD RD STE 1400, DOWNERS GROVE, IL  60515-1050
        (708) 769-0033 Platinum Entertainment
        (312) 944-1107 River North Records recording studio


    As far as released singles are concerned, BUIH (15 Jul 96) and SFA
    (4 Nov 96) are out in Europe with videos, and FF was supposed to be
    the first single in America, with a video available from the VH-1
    cable music video channel; however, Blown By The Wind (Mar 97) was
    eventually chosen as the first.  (I have yet to see the single avail-
    able for purchase, much less hear it on the box.)  The Fall Free video
    features daredevil Rob Harris' skysurfing and clips from the 1996 On
    Air concert at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco on 9 Oct 1996.


    There also exists a River North promo version of the audio CD.
    I saw it at the Santa Rosa concert on 8 Oct 1996.  It was made
    available to radio stations only.  The CD has one big balloon
    on it and does not come with the inlay.

    Martin has some additional info:

        With track timings that appear to be identical to the final
        version, this doesn't sound like an item worth a separate
        entry.  But the packaging is pretty unique: two color printing
        (black and blue) of the On Air balloon on an aluminum disc,
        back cover art with an artist/album summary and instead of
        the normal front cover art, a clear case with a 35mm color
        slide of the cover art attached.  The disc also has the track
        listing printed on the disc, though "Can't Look Down" is
        listed as "Can't Look Back".

        Promo text (as it appeared, there were a couple typos):

        "Alan Parsons is a true innovator and the creator of several
         concept projects including the platinum EYE IN THE SKY and most
         recently producer of the orchestral SYMPHONIC MUSIC OF YES
         which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical and Crossover
         charts.  His latest, ON AIR is a project that explores man's
         desire to fly and how air and space travel have effected our
         lives and our achievements.  Taking the concept album several
         steps into the future, Parsons creates not only a thematic
         whole on audio disc, but an interactive CD-ROM as well.
         Packaged with the computer disc as a bonus, ON AIR uses music,
         visuals, history, literature and a wealth of other related
         information.

         As on all projects created by Alan Parsons, collaboration is
         also a theme.  The unmistakeable voice of Christopher Cross'
         grace "So Far Away", a song that contemplates the exploration
         of space.  Eric Stewart, former guitarist and vocalist for the
         group 10CC, lends his smooth voice to "Blown By The Wind" and
         "Blue Blue Sky" with it's gently rhythmic beat and sincere
         harmonic beauty.  Throughout the package, the artwork and
         design of Storm Thorgerson, cover designer for Pink Floyd and
         Alan Parsons Project albums, is both intriguing and inspiring
         as it sets the mood for the songs and leads the way through

Notes:

- new album inspired by Herbert George Wells, but not based on tTM story
- recording and mixing are complete
- mastering at Abbey Road by Chris Blair on 2 Jun 99 
- Japanese bonus track is an instrumental with a narrative voice-over by
    our fearless leader.        :-)
- Dr. Evil mixes... available only on European releases from Artful
    and Arcade.  Both Dr. Evil mixes are available on Arcade/CNR's
    CD single (see below).  According to Artful Records on their website:

    Due to the huge profile that Alan Parsons is enjoying via the new
    Austin Powers movie 'The Spy Who Shagged Me' (Dr Evil[']s death
    ray is named The Alan Parsons Project)  Mike Myers alter-ego Dr[.]
    Evil has donated some soundbites that have formed the basis of a
    bonus track on the UK version only called 'Dr. Evil' which is
    hideously placed at #13 on the tracklist...

Mailing list posting [abridged] by Yuka:

    From: TATEISI Yuka (yucca@ra2.so-net.ne.jp)
    Date: Mon, 28 Jun 1999 23:43:08 +0900
    Subject: TTM

    All I could find was a post on 
    http://www.dac-inc.co.jp/~watch/text/wurcafe99-4-9.txt
    which is (or so it seems to me) a log of a BBS on
    antique clocks and watches.

    The posting is dated April 28, from someone whose
    colleague was involved in the recordings of TTM.

    Some info on TTM according to the post:

    - The album's theme is time and watch/clock.
    - According to the colleague, the album sounds Pink Floyd-ish.
    - Alan Parsons asked the collegue about the histry of watch/
      clock in Japan.
    - The artwork is done by Storm Thorgerson.
    - It includes various pictures and photos of watches/clocks.
      The original artwork (manuscript?) included the picture
      of a tiny man dragging a huge watch.
    - The sleeve art will differ from release to release.
      Japanese one will include the picture of Daimyo-dokei
      (a clock from Edo period). 
    - The clock in the Alan Parsons' studio was in 24-hour system.
    - There was a sleeve art of "ZEP I" on the wall of the studio.

    PS
    Please don't trust the translation to be 100% correct.
    I would like to recommend you to read the page above but
    you have to be able to read Japanese.

    Liner Notes:

        If producers are the superstars of the Nineties,
        then Alan Parsons can claim to have been amoung the
        first of the breed.  Life 'fifth Beatle' George
        Martin, he used London's legendary Abbey Road studios
        as his launchpad, serving as assistant engineer on the
        Fab Four's final *bona fide* recording named after
        those very studios.  He also engineered for Paul
        McCartney and Pink Floyd winning [ actually only
        nominated for - ed. ] a Grammy for 'Dark Side Of The
        Moon,' (still a definitive test recording for stereo
        sound systems - in the CD age) before graduating to
        produce Al Stewart, Cockney Rebel, Pilot and others
        in the early Seventies.

        The decision to make music as opposed to producing
        others came after a meeting with one Eric Woolfson.
        'Eric offered to manage me, and from a business
        arrangement it moved into a creative one'.  Sharing
        a fascination for horror movies like *Jaws*, *Towering
        Inferno*, and *Earthquake*, the duo adopted the then-
        fashionable 'concept album' format as their vehicle;
        the first fruits, released in 1976 as 'Tales Of
        Mystery And Imagination,' are unavailable for this
        compilation but served very much as a blueprint for
        the albums that followed.

        Using Poe's well-known literary classic...
                :

        Eric Woolfson explained the duo's...
                :

        If you wonder why...
                :

        'I Robot,' sci-fi in concept...
                :

        Next up in 1978 was 'Pyramid,'...
                :

        Viewed from a distance...
                :

        1984's 'Ammonia Avenue'...
                :

        The Poe connection surfaced again...
                :

        'Stereotomy' broke with tradition...
                :

        The advent of compact disc saw...
                :

        If studio technology had caught up with...
                :

        The last to be heard of Parsons...
                :

        In a pre-'Gaudi' interview...
                :

        That dream may have reached fruition...
                :

        The fact that Parsons took the production credit
        leads one to suppose that this is Woolfson's 'solo
        album' and that the Project may yet reconvene in the
        Nineties.  Whether or not this happens, the compilation
        you hold in your hand is a fititng tribute to the
        creative combination of the recording studio's most
        dynamic duo: Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson, collectively
        the Alan Parsons Project.

        This is the German remaster that people have been discussing
        on the mailing list.  It is available from Thoughtscape,
        CD Banzai, CD Europe, and Borders in America, and from Sva-

        (see their Zounds page at http://www.svalander.se/zounds1.htm).

        Of interest to fans are the last two paragraphs, here given
        in the original Deutsch by Martin, followed by Darrel Nie-
        mann's translation to English:
 
            Denn erst Ende 1990 gibt es wieder ein Platten-Projekt
            -- "Freudiana", das in Wien unter Rigisseur Peter Weck
            seine Musical-Premiere erlebt. Doch "Freudiana" is en
            Verwirrspiel: Obwohl Eric Woolfson Komponist und Texter
            ist, Alan Parsons produziert, en Knozept dahinsteht
            (diverse Faelle aus Sigmund Freuds psychoanalytischer
            Praxis) und wie gewohnt diverse Saenger (so zum Bespiel
            Leo Sayer) mit von der Partie sind -- es is keine neue
            Platte des Alan Parsons Project.  "Ich habe mich ver-
            steckt; aber diesmal wollte ich das nicht mehr", be-
            schiedet ein selbstbewusster Eric Woolfson verwunderte
            Fragesteller und behauptet, Alan Parsons sei ins Glied
            zurueckgetreten und mit dieser Rolle vollauf zufrieden.

            Also kein Konzeptalbum von Alan Parsons Project mehr?
            Die Antwort muss offen blieben.  Veilleicht ist das Duo
            ja bereits in Studioklausur, verbirgt seine neuen Ideen
            hinter irrefuehrenden Arbeitstiteln wie "Amazing Grace"
            oder schlicht "Project 6" wie einst fuer "Eye In The
            Sky", getreu ihrer damaligen Devise: "Wir halten alles
            geheim -- bis wir fertig sind."

        From DarrelN486@mindspring.com Mon Dec 23 21:17:06 1996

            Since the end of 1990, there is a new "project",
            "Freudiana", which had its musical premiere in Vienna
            directed by Peter Weck.  But "Freudiana" is truly
            intricate & confusing:  Even though Eric Woolfson is
            credited as composer & writer, Alan Parsons produced
            the concept of Sigmund Freud's diverse cases from his
            psychoanalytic practice, along with the usual diversity
            of singers (e.g.  Leo Sayer), a new "Project", it is
            not!  "I have been hiding (in the background); but this
            time I didn't want to anymore", says a self-confident
            Eric Woolfson. Woolfson further stated, "Alan Parsons
            stepped into the background, and was very satisfied
            with his new role."

            So, no more Concept Albums from the Alan Parsons
            Project?  The answer remains open. Maybe the duo is
            already in "Studio Bankruptcy", hiding their new work
            ideas behind confusing titles such as "Amazing Grace"
            or simply "Project 6", the working title for "Eye in
            the Sky". Both seem to remain true to their motto:
            "We keep everything secret -- until it's done."

        was barely started, never finished, thus never released.

    Liner Notes:  [thanks to Alistair Young for his swift fingers -- ed.]

        The mid 1970's was a musical era awash in the ashes of the late
        60's and early 70's progressive rock movement. The New Wave from
        the American coasts and England had yet to appear and the new
        generation of mainstream artists were still in their infancy, if
        together at all. The musical euphoria and innovation which was so
        prevalent just a few years earlier had gotten a bit stagnant...
        but there were exceptions. A handful of new as well as veteran
        artists managed to forge ahead with continuing high standards of
        musicianship and expression. Clearly, among those exceptions was
        the Alan Parsons Project with wide screen, cinematic music that
        would "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee".

        However, unlike many artists who attempt cinematic music, the Alan
        Parsons Project was able to combine rich orchestral textures with
        a sense of economy. The key has always been in the Project's
        ability to deliver a sense of balance. Complex arrangements were
        fitted to accessible melodies... Their musicianship has the
        highest standards, yet the frequently boring indulgences common to
        progressive artists were absent from the Project's music, and the
        overall feel of the songs was conducive to headphone listening as
        well as background listening.

        Perhaps the greatest example of balance is in the founding members
        themselves. Alan Parsons was so blown away by hearing the Beatles'
        "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album in 1967 that he
        applied for and successfully landed a job at the famous Abbey Road
        Studios in London. Parsons worked with the Beatles on the "Abbey
        Road" album and continued his relationship with Paul McCartney,
        recording "Wild Life" and "Red Rose Speedway". He was also
        nominated for a Grammy for recording Pink Floyd's classic "Dark
        Side of the Moon".

        In 1974 Alan Parsons met Eric Woolfson, who was soon to function
        as Alan Parsons' manager and shortly thereafter as his musical
        partner. Thus, the Project was born.

        Although Woolfson has a lower profile than Parsons, his
        contributions as a song writer and conceptual collaborator have
        been critical to the Project's success through the years.

        When Parsons and Woolfson aren't busy dreaming up ideas for their
        next release, or actually developing a piece, Woolfson might be
        found discussing world politics at his favourite English
        restaurant, while Parsons is coming to terms with some new piece
        of technology. It's the balance of personalities, as well as the
        balance of musical elements, as with so many great artists, that
        make it happen.

        The Project has always been committed to its own musical concepts
        rather than trend and what may be fashionable at the time. At
        times their music has flown in the face of the mainstream and
        through it all, album after album, they have managed to please
        their fans, regardless of hit singles or marketing gimmicks. Since
        the Project has never toured, it seems refreshing to hear music
        that is based purely on sound and song rather than an image or an
        obsession with the latests novelty. They have managed to power
        themselves through the late 70's stadium rock era, the early 80's
        Disco sound, and the present Euro-synthesiser/drum machine
        overkill.

        Much of their magic has to be credited to their ability to be
        flexible musically without sacrificing their inherent sound. They
        have been funky on tracks like "Wouldn't Want To Be Like You",
        straight ahead on "Games People Play", and dreamy in an almost
        Technicolor way with "Nucleus". Again, the balance of Woolfson's
        pop sensibility with Parsons' trend setting production allows
        their music to stretch out, use unusual instrumentation and
        maintain accessibility.

        Using regular musicians, yet not having the restrictions of
        certain people locked in certain functions, the Alan Parsons
        Project was among the pioneers of the concept of interchangeable
        band members, as previously found only in solo or orchestral
        situations.

        The Project's first album was "Tales of Mystery and Imagination"
        which was recorded over a two year period. It met with good,
        though not overwhelming, public response. In 1977 the Project
        switched labels and began a new phase with a series of concept
        albums. The "I Robot" album was a view of tomorrow through the
        eyes of today. Both ethereal and funky, "I Robot" was a huge
        success.

        In June 1978 a look at yesterday through the eyes of today was
        evident on the "Pyramid" album. By this point the Project had
        established a firm base of fans in North America, continental
        Europe and Australia. The "Eve" album followed in August of 1979,
        on the subject of women.

        Their success continued with the release of "Turn Of A Friendly
        Card" in October 1980, an album about the subconscious versus the
        power of choice. As obscure as the theme may seem on the surface,
        the album stayed high on the charts for over a year and yielded
        two hit singles, "Time" and "Games People Play".

        After a brief "rest", the Project resumed with "Eye in the Sky", a
        1984-ish look at the future. The title track "Eye In The Sky"
        continued their string of widely played singles, although their
        intent was essentially to continue their conceptual approach
        rather than compromise for the sole benefit of commercial single
        success.

        Some artists with new and innovative ideas run out of creative
        fuel after a time, but the Project has continued to evolve and to
        take their own music higher and further. While this compilation
        clearly documents the evolution of the Alan Parsons Project, there
        are already rumours emanating from their "home" studio at Abbey
        Road of another adventurous Project album, possibly with video
        connections, a medium in which Parsons and Woolfson have great
        interest.

        But whatever the results, we're guaranteed another state of the
        art experience that will keep the spirit of progressive music
        alive.

    Notes:  "Limelight" appears to be the non-US release.  Spain
    and Latin American countries have La Sagrada Familia added to
    it as the last track, in a conspicuous marketing effort.

    Notes:

    This is the first new compilation by Arista in over ten years.
    It's probably the first *decent* one too!   :)      Anyway, the
    release is part of Arista's Masters collection.  Completely new
    liner notes by Kathleen and Denny Somach are included, and each
    analog track is 20-bit digitally remastered.

    One note of interest.  This was not the first song lineup.  When
    the initial press release was made, *this* was the track listing:

        DISC 1:

        (The System Of) Doctor Tarr And Professor Feather

        Day After Day (The Show Must Go On)

        What Goes Up...

        Can't Take It With You
        Pyramania
        Lucifer
        You Lie Down With Dogs
        You Won't Be There
        Damned If I Do

        Time

        DISC 2:

        Stereotomy

Notes:

    If Master Hits is supposed to be a midline price release, this is
    definitely low-end and cut-out material.  This recent compilation
    in the "Encore Collection" boasts a whopping $6.97 retail price release!
    The original release date was 07/20/99... may be delayed till 08/03/99.

    Liner Notes:

    Plain, no booklet, just a single folded inlay sheet with track info.
    The cover has at the top, "AUS DER TV - WERBUNG", followed by the
    artist and album name.  The bottom is featured with the following
    track titles:  Lucifer, Don't Answer Me, Eye In The Sky, What Goes
    Up..., The Turn Of A Friendly Card.

    The copyright note on the back is interesting.  It reads:

    Notes:

    This is an alternative, non-remastered, European-only version of
    The Definitive Collection released by Ariola, probably filled with
    the songs that didn't make it.      :-)

    Although no songs from ToMaI are on this set nor are the tracks
    digitally-remastered by Alan, it is *at least* longer than Defini-
    tive Collection by over 2 minutes!

    I don't know *where* they get the idea that The Eagle Will Rise
    Again is over 7 minutes long... must have been a disco remix.    :D

[ This is the hard-to-find Vienese cast recording for Freudiana.  The
    music is all in German, but the songs are all basically the same
    as the studio album.  Special thanks to David Datta for initial info,
    and to Yuka Tateisi (who had to do a lot of German - Japanese -
    English translating) for this album info.  Unfortunately, this one
    is out-of-print, and difficult to come by.  Good luck!! -- ed. ]

    Notes:

        The title means something like "Experience a World of Fantasy".
        There are two versions of this CD.  The first, features Dagmar
        Hellberg and Maik Lohse who were part of the original Aachen cast.
        RenŽe Knapp and Martin Moss replaced them for the Alsdorf and
        Cologne stages; the album was rerecorded with the new vocalists.
        
        There are major differences in the liner notes, and the older
        release lists the track numbers and titles on the CD whereas
        the new one only says "see inlay for details".

        In 1996, a rerelease of this recording was issued by WEA, but
        as a "KŸln" edition.  The front of the inlay has different
        words, and the rather than the traditional 'w', 'e', 'a' logo,
        the new white box with blue 'wea' logo is used.

[ Special thanks to Alistair Young for the original album info.
    The original Aachen release is reported out-of-print and is
    available only at the current venue for the Gaudi musical
    whereas the second version (WEA) is still widely available.  -- ed. ]

    Notes:

        The show premiered on October 26, 1996 at the MusicalStage in
        Mšnchengladbach, Germany.  This cast recording was released
        (in September 1997), about a year after it was supposed to
        (i.e. before the musical's debut was the plan).

        This live CD is no longer in print and was available only at the
        theater gift shop.  There is no designated release or distribution
        information on this Live CD.  A commercial studio release was taken
        under consideration, but was never completed if it was ever started
        (see below).

        The music featured in this musical includes tracks from The Turn
        Of A Friendly Card plus Limelight from Stereotomy and Eye In The
        Sky from the album of the same name.

        For more info, see Alistair's Gambler miscellaneous web page at:
            http://www.roadkill.com/cgi-ajy/enc.cgi?album=Gambler

        Songs featured in the show that are not on the CD include:

            -- Vespers
            -- The World Is Far Away (now the Far Away [Trio])
            -- Snake Eyes I
            -- Snake Eyes II

        Hopefully, they'll be in the studio version, if there is one.
        If not, at least they are featured in the Original Korean Cast
        recording (see below).

        There has also been a rumor of a studio cast recording.  It has
        been this way for most of its lifetime.  One thing that we *do*
        know, is that accordinging to The Avenue issue #9, Chris Rainbow
        had been in the studio recording on tracks for this album.  With
        the closing of the show, however, I doubt any tapes will ever
        see the light of day.

    Liner notes:

        The liner notes are all in German.  I don't have a translation
        as of yet, but basically, they give mini bios for Eric (Die Kom-
        ponist), Haydn Bendall (Der Sound -- i.e. engineer), the players
        (Die Haptrollen), and Die Story.

    Notes:

        This is the Original Korean Cast recording of Gambler.  Because
        of its late entry as well as its more complete track list, we get
        a better representation of the musical from this recording than
        from Woolfson's original.  Although the songs are done completely
        in Korean, there is no mistaking the music.  The additional music
        makes for an excellent full-length CD.
        
        We are also introduced to the recorded premieres of the songs
        Vespers and Snake Eyes (I and II) since these are not present
        on the German cast recording.  I would also venture to say that
        the range of the songs sometimes exceeds the vocal capabilities
        of some of the singers.  Nevertheless, I am pleased to here a
        more complete recording of the songs from this musical.

        One other boo-boo... according to the track listing, there were
        supposed to be 14 tracks on this CD.  However, they accidentally
        merged tracks 12 and 13 together into a single track 12, hence
        the enormous length and track title confusion you see above.

        Almost everything is in Korean with the exception of the English
        song titles.  The same applies for the programme, with the ex-
        ception of Eric's letter to the producers of the show (below).
        It appears to be edited or translated somehow as it does not
        make the most sense.  Anyway, i'll let you be the judge of that.


    Eric's personal letter to show producers (verbatim from programme,
    including incorrect CAPS usage, mispellings, and opened quotes):

        We have to thank you for such a good production of musical
        GAMBLER, delighted all of us and far exceeded our expectations
        - I was so excited to see my music performed by Sinshi members
        in Seoul and this gave me more pleasure than I had dared
        imagine!  the most important factor of all was that your
        production of GAMBLER was so excellent, with some features even
        better than in Europe.

        Also, We all are so happy with the "family feeling at Sinshi,
        with producer, director, technical people and actors relaxing
        together after doing such good work, and you can be very proud
        of the wonderful relationships you have developed with in
        Sinshi.

        Kindest regards,

        Eric Woolfson


    Edited and abridged notes by Hyung-Wook Kim:

        The big 3 Korean words/symbols in the title spell the Korean
        enunciation of the word "Gambler:"  [Gaem] [Beul] [Reo]

        The Korean song titles are either direct translations or free
        translations of the original titles, meaning that the direct
        translations are those that are word-for-word, while free trans-
        lations were done "freely" to the understanding of the audience,
        i.e. interpreted, rather than translated.  For instance, the
        translation of "Nine by nine by nine" was something like "I
        passed":  [Na] [Boot] [At] [Da].  But in my opinion, these titles
        are not important.  Anyway, just keep in mind that they have a
        similar meaning or add clarification to the original titles.

        Just for reference, this recording was made at first performance

    (Edited) Commentary (by Yuka Tateisi):

        I found this compilation album in HMV at Tsim Sha Tsui,
        Hong Kong.  As you can see above, this is 'too Woolfsony',
        and I am wondering what would those people who dislike
        "Ammonia Avenue" and "Vulture Culture" (including Alan
        himself) would say.

        To me -- I like AA but not VC -- it's still too fluffy
        (like something soft and floating about in the air).
        But when I am tired and sleepy it's very pleasant to hear
        these vocal tracks and then I wish for Lucifer and Hawkeye
        they aren't there (normally I like these).

    Note:

        I went to the same HMV as Yuka (in Dec 96) in Tsim Sha Tsui,
        a total tourist-type shopping area in Kowloon.  Anyway, they
        had the album there selling for $125HK, which is about
        $16.17US.  I also found a few copies in Taiwan for $385NTD,
        or about $14US.  Although released by BMG Arista, it looks
        like it's only distributed by BMG Music Taiwan (i.e. to Hong
        Kong, Taiwan, and others in their reach).  Still plenty
        available if you know anyone in those parts of the world.

Note:

        Part of Arista's Heritage Series featuring digitally-
        remastered tracks making up a "greatest hits" album
        (see below).

        Some have speculated that this compilation is just a
        subset of The Definitive Collection, a 2CD set that
        was digitally-mastered by Alan himself, but that may
        not be the case since 3 of the tracks on this CD are
        *not* part of DC.  *However*, 2 of these tracks were
        on the original lineup of DC -- Limelight being the
        only track to not show up anywhere in the DC notes.
        
        Before DC was released, there was some debate amongst
        Alan, Eric, and Arista regarding which tracks should
        be on DC, and which should be dumped.  Perhaps Lime-
        light *was* in cut list that everyone agreed on first.
        If that's the case, then Alan did remaster all these.

    Liner Notes:

        From his landmark work as an engineer (on the Beatles'
        "Abbey Road" and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon")
        and producer (Al Stewart's "Time Passages"), through
        the classic albums that bear his name, Alan Parsons is
        one of the true architects of rock and pop.  Recording
        as The Alan Parsons Project, he created some of the
        most visionary Gold and Platinum music of the era.
        Here is the best of Parsons' sonically masterful hits,
        taken from seven of his acclaimed concept albums.

        THE HERITAGE SERIES is an essential collection of
        digitally[-]remastered, mid-priced albums.  Featuring
        some of the best rock, pop, R&B and soul of the past
        30 years, they make it easy to discover what you might
        have missed the first time... or to re-discover those
        hard-to-find favorites all over again.

    Liner Notes:

        In the late sixties Alan Parsons embarked on the kind of career
        that today reads like a thriller, a fairy tale come true. The
        very first album Alan was involved with was The Beatles 'Abbey
        Road', one of the finest albums recorded in the young history
        of popular music. Alan got the job of assistant technician. He
        came to Abbey Road to learn. But also to put to practice some
        ideas he had about the development of the sounds of that time.
        Alan: 'I've always been into sounds, much more than into lyrics,
        voices or performing.  When The Beatles recorded the album
        'Abbey Road' they had stopped performing. They completely
        concentrated on recording albums. They had the kind of genius
        that would amaze me time after time. From them I learned how
        one should always be creative.  Both with instruments and with
        sounds. From their producer George Martin I learned how to
        achieve an idea that at first only exists in the mind. The
        Beatles knew what they wanted; Martin knew how to get it. I
        learned a lot in those days'. After The Beatles split up,
        Alan kept in touch with Paul McCartney, the romantic Beatle,
        who had formed his own group Wings. Alan engineered Wings
        albums like 'Wildlife' and 'Red Rose Speedway'. Alan: 'Of
        course McCartney knew more or less the sound that he wanted.
        But he was always pleased with a useful suggestion and even
        some constructive criticism'. However, the group that provided
        the greatest scope for Alan's inventive style of engineering
        was Pink Floyd. Unlike most groups in those days the Floyd did
        not handle a three minute song-formula. They looked for new
        horizons. And they found it. Alan thought the gates of heaven
        had opened for him when the Floyd hired him to do the
        engineering on the now legendary 'Dark Side of the Moon' album.
        His work earned Alan a Grammy-nomination. The kind of praise a
        young artist needs to get confidence.

        The next step for Alan was, quite logically, to become a producer.
        He enjoyed instant fame and success with Steve Harley's Cockney
        Rebel. Alan expanded both his view and his fame when he produced
        several Al Stewart albums. Just prior to commencement of 'The
        Project', Parsons reviewed what he considered to be some of the
        greatest albums of those days and to determine what made them
        great. Alan: 'I listened primarily to 'Bridge Over Troubled Water',
        'Sergeant Pepper' and 'Dark Side of the Moon'. I surmised that all
        of the great albums offered a kind of continuity, a beautiful flow
        between tracks.  This, I felt, compelled the listener to want to
        listen to both sides straight through. In order to attain the
        complete statement of the album'. In spite of his successes both
        as an engineer and a producer no record company seemed eager to
        invest in Parsons own ideas of a concept album. It was his by now
        longtime associate Eric Woolfson who reached him a helping hand.
        Alan: 'I was working at EMI and had been turned down for the most
        basic production deal that anybody off the street could get. Eric
        showed a lot of faith in me. And EMI somehow had a lot of faith
        in him. It started as a business relationship and moved into a
        creative one'. The first album of 'The Project' was 'Tales of
        Mystery and Imagination'. Woolfson came to Alan with the idea. It
        would be an album on Edgar Allan Poe with no artists involved. It
        soon became apparent that there was scope to develop. First The
        Alan Parsons Project was to be a one project-affair. then it
        developed and became a formula. Woolfson became the architect, he
        came up with the ideas and wrote the lyrics. Parsons became the
        technical wizard. All Parsons and Woolfson needed were concepts.
        The titles of the albums that followed after the highly acclaimed
        Poe-adventure - Parsons received a Grammy Award - already suggested
        the conceptual approach: 'I Robot','Pyramid','Eve','The Turn of a
        Friendly Card','Ammonia Avenue','On Air' and others. 'The Turn of
        a Friendly Card' was inspired by the fact that they had moved to
        Monte Carlo, a gambling paradise. Alan: 'The album has a lot to do
        with the gambling there and taking risks generally. It contains the
        elements of risk, intimidation and bluff'. The Project has had a
        few single successes in the popcharts.  ('Mammagamma','Time','Eye
        in the Sky' and of course 'Old and Wise') but has somehow always
        shied away from star names. Alan: 'Quite a lot of what The Project
        has been all about is that there is a certain attraction to a new
        voice being introduced, as opposed to the voice that you're
        expecting, which you would have in the case of a Rod Stewart or
        Roger Daltrey. We tend to stay away from people who are in the
        limelight'.

European release notes: [by Alistair Young]
-----------------------
Title:  The Cover simply says "Alan Parsons Live" but a sticker on
        the front of the case says "THE VERY BEST OF live" so it's
        hard to say.  I'd go for "The Very Best Of Alan Parsons Live".
        Even then, is it "The Very Best Of *Alan Parsons* Live", or
        "The Very Best Of *Alan Parsons Live*"?  Got to be the most
        ambiguously titled album I've ever come across.

Vocals: The vocalists are only guesses but it's easy enough to distinguish
        between Gary Howard and Chris Thompson.  I'm only guessing that AP
        is the man behind the vocoder in The Raven as he was the bloke who
        did it originally, of course.  It's interesting that Gary Howard,
        'The Universal Father' from Freudiana, is singing all the high-pitch
        Eric-type songs!  On The Raven and Don't Answer Me, Gary Howard and
        Chris Thompson share the lead vocals.]

Misc:   The album's split into 12 tracks, one for each song and I can't
        notice any problem with the sound quality.  It was post-produced
        by Alan Parsons at his Parsonics studio (there's a name to rival
        Starink's Star Inc.) with assistance from Ian Bairnson.  There's
        some crowd noise but I think it adds to the atmosphere.  For
        example, at the start of the album, there's an ominous low hum
        from the stage.  You hear the odd whistle from people in the
        crowd.  Then, in comes the guitar which heralds the start of
        Sirius and there's a great cheer from the audience.  But with a
        few exceptions, you only really hear the crowd at the start and
        end of tracks.  You also get to hear Alan [tripping up]...

            "Thank you."
            "Here's another song from Eye in the Sky."
            (nervous laugh)
            "Er... Friendly Card.  That's right.  Sorry."
            (nervous laugh)
            "Turn of a Friendly Card - getting my albums mixed up."
            (nervous laugh)
            "This is called Time..."

        Anyway, you *know* there must be some fans in the audience
        when they manage to clap along to the bass line at the start
        of The Raven.

USA release notes:
------------------
Cover:  Spilled red liquid (looks like cherry 7UP or "red snot") on blue
        background.  From a side angle, it look suspiciously like the
        letters "A" and "P".

Misc:   Additional 3 studio recorded tracks, including "Take The Money
        And Run," the first track featuring Stuart Elliott on vocals.
        Also, the order of the live tracks has been switched around a bit.

[ The European release is still available from many sources,
    including German Music Express and CD Europe. -- ed. ]

    Notes:

    This is quite an interesting compilation, obtain by Erol from Istanbul.
    It features not only Arista tracks, but also CoA from ToMaI, as well as
    one track from Freudiana!!  It's the only I've seen with all three.

    More Notes [by Erol]:

    It's quite interesting to listen these Projective songs in this order.
    Erol Cetincelik - Istanbul, Turkey.
    I didn't see any other copy of this album, could it be the only one?

    Liner Notes:

        From the LP "I Robot"
        Produced by Alan Parsons
        Engineer:  Alan Parsons
        Recorded December 1976, March 1977 at Abbey Road Studios, London
        Courtesy of Arista Records, Inc.

        I Robot is a haunting science-fiction vision and a remarkable sonic
        achievement.  In it, The Alan Parsons Project creates a musical
        illustration of today through the eyes of tomorrow, conjuring up
        mind-boggling images.  The sound was aptly dubbed "cinematic rock,"
        music that creates images in the mind's eye through Parsons' cre-
        ativity and technical capabilities.  It's unusual, pointed, compel-
        ling, sensual, a smashing sound spectacular - music of the spheres.

        The personal Parsons expedition began back in the recording days of
        the Beatles' Abbey Road.  It gained momentum later with Paul Mc-
        Cartney and Wings, with Al Stewart and Pink Floyd and the Hollies.
        In each case his inventive style of engineering contributed to the
        major successes of those artists.

        Genesis, Chapter 1, VERSE 32 is a brand-new verse in the tradition
        of rock.  Something unexpected, it represents a search for a form
        that never existed.  It's rich in color and compositional flow.
        The lasting impression is of a lush, enveloping atmosphere to
        heighten the vibrating experience.

    Notes:

        In June-July, 1996, Mobile Fidelty is marketing their gold
        CDs with a "buy two, get one free" offer.  The free item
        must be least expensive of the three.  How much cheaper than
        free can the third one be?  Yes, one of the "free" ones that
        you can choose is the FREE sampler.  Why would you pick one
        than normally sells for $30?!   :D
        
        Anyway, this disc contains one cut from the APP, from ToMaI,
        their current (and only available) APP release.  Now if they
        could make the same offer, but with all current and past re-
        leases, I suspect that we would all rush out and get ToMaI,
        I Robot, and APatPOPtBotAPP!  No controversy there!!

    All Titles Composed by:     Alan Parsons
    Performed by:               Alex Bollard Assembly
    Synthesizers:               Ed Starink

    Vocals:                     Edward Reekers

    Notes:  Apparently, there are multiple versions of this album.

    (a) The first appears to be the Star Inc. release from Holland.
        The artwork on the liner notes as an aerial view of Egypt
        over the Nile river along some ancient Egyptian monument.
        There is also an image of a nude female torso intertwined
        a lˆ the mummy artwork on ToMaI.

    (b) The second is a Dutch release from CNR Music, as part of
        the Songbook Series.  It specifically states that "this
        compilation [is] licensed by Star Inc. Music - Holland".
        The artwork on this liner note is an outer-space view,
        with a transparent prism with a beam of light emitting
        from the left side and exiting to the right in the full
        spectrum, a lˆ Dark Side Of The Moon.

        [Warning:  CD Europe lists this as PLAYS ALAN PARSONS,
        but upon payment and subsequent arrival of the CD, you
        will find out that it's still ALAN PARSONS SONGBOOK. -- ed.]

    (c) The third is a German release from Arcade consisting of
        a different track ordering.  The artwork on the front is
        a collage with a red pyramid on sandy dunes, a blue/black
        road down the left side with a gray sphere.  The sky has
        swirling clouds, and in the center of a spiraling cloud
        is a blue eye (in the sky).  This version does NOT have
        the liner notes as the other two (Star Inc.) releases.
        This is the only release which identifies the players.

    (d) Other versions are packaged under various names, including,
        but not limited to, "Le Monde Musical d'Alan Parsons" and
        "El Mundo Musicale de Alan Parsons".  I am not sure if the
        Alex Bollard Aseembly is credited on these versions though.
        As far as the track listing goes, Alistair believes that it
        is the same as the Arcade release.

    The instrumental pieces are produced by Ed Starink (Star,
    Inc.[?]).  It is not known whether or not these pieces, which
    appear on the Synthesizer Greatest albums (see above) were
    performed solely by Ed Starink, or with the help of Alex
    Bollard Assembly members.  Also, the Star versions
    incorrectly identify Ed Starink instead of Alex Bollard as
    the producer of track 2.

    Liner Notes:        [Star/CNR edits - ed.]
    
        The Alan Parsons Song Book" is an album to give you the
        opportunity to enjoy the music of the Alan Parsons Project
        played by The Alex Bollard Assembly and to accompany these
        vital musicians on their trip to the exciting experience
        of unlimited sound possibilities.

        Alan Parsons (1949) is one of England's most musical phe-
        nomenons [sic].  He was so blown away [be/by] hearing the
        Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album in
        1967, that he applied for and successfully landed a job at
        the famous Abbey Road Studios in London.  Parsons worked
        with the Beatles on the "Abbey Road" album and continued
        his relationship with Paul McCartney, recording "Wild
        Life" and "Red Rose Speedway".  He also was nominated for
        a Grammy Award for recording Pink Floyd's classic "Dark
        Side Of The Moon".  In 1974 Alan Parsons met Eric Woolfson,
        who was soon to function as Parsons' manager and shortly
        thereafter as his musical partner.  Alan and Eric started
        The Alan Parsons Project and their explorations into the
        sound and structure of symphonic pop music led to several
        wonderful albums during the 1970s and the 1980s.  The
        Project's first album was "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination"
        (1976), which was recorded over a two year period.  It met
        with good, though not overwhelming, public response.  The
        "I, Robot" album (1977) was a huge success.  Some artists
        with new and innovative ideas run out of creative fuel
        after a time, but The Alan Parsons Project has continued to
        evolve and to take their own music higher and further.
        Among the Project's best albums are "Eve" (1979), "The Turn
        Of A Friendly Card" (1980), "Eye In The Sky" (1982),
        "Vulture Culture" (1985), and "[/:]Gaudi" (1987).

        All piece in this "Alan Parsons Song Book" are spellbinding,
        mindbending, hypnotic.  With all their variety - and there is
        a huge range of dynamics in the songs, written by Parsons and
        Woolfson - there is always a sense of unity and peace, nature
        and silence and personal thought.  It is almost as if Alan and
        Eric had set out to produce only classics, masterpieces - and
        calmly went ahead and did just that.

        The wonderfully rich, vibrant soun[d/] to The Alex Bollard
        Assembly never had more intrinsically superb material to
        apply itself to than on this compact disc.  Together the 19
        highlights from the Song Book of Alan Parsons form a
        collection of tunes that are indisputably outstanding.

    General notes:

    All the tracks on this album are performed on synthesizers. For
    the most part, the tracks aren't too bad - although they don't
    seem as professional as the ones performed by Ed Starink on the
    Synthesizer Greatest series of albums, and on The Alan Parsons
    Songbook. The 'doo' sound on The Gold Bug is particularly
    jarring...

    This is the first album, to my knowledge, to feature tracks from
    both Project and AP solo albums.

    Although "9410190" was given as the catalog number, the number
    found in the bar code is "8 014264 942909," and the IDs found on
    the inside ring on the CD itself is "99195124605" and "1449-B".
    I really don't see too much correlation between any of these,
    which is surprising.

        ALL TITLES COMPOSED BY ALAN PARSONS & ERIC WOOLFSON
        LICENSED FROM MOVIEPLAY DO BRASIL

Liner Notes: [meticiously transcribed by Alistair Young]

[Other than the last paragraph, this is nothing more than a butchered 
 version of the notes found in "The Best Of The Alan Parsons Project"
 Well, at least it saved me some typing...]

     The mid 1970s was a musical era awash in the ashes of the late 1960s
     and early 1970s progressive rock movement.  The New Wave from the
     American coasts and England had yet to appear and the new generation
     of mainstream artists were still in their infancy, if together at
     all.  The musical euphoria and innovation which was so prevalent just
     a few years earlier had gotten a bit stagnant, but there were
     exceptions. A handful of new as well as veteran artists managed to
     forge ahead with continuing high standards of musicianship and
     expression. Clearly, among those exceptions was the Alan Parsons
     Project with wide screen, cinematic music.  The Alan Parsons Project 
     was able to combine rich orchestral textures with a sense of economy.

     The key has always been in the Project's ability to deliver a sense 
     of balance. Complex arrangements were fitted to accessible melodies.
     Their musicianship has the highest standards, yet the frequently boring 
     indulgences common to progressive artists were absent from the Project's 
     music, and the overall feel of the songs was conducive to headphone 
     listening as well as background listening.
     
     The Project's first album was "Tales of Mystery and Imagination"
     which was recorded over a two year period. It met with good, though
     not overwhelming, public response. In 1977 the Project began a new 
     phase with a series of concept albums, such as "I, Robot" [sic],
     "Pyramid", "Eve", "Turn Of A Friendly Card" and "Eye In The Sky".
     All in all we can say that the Alan Parsons Project has continued
     to take their own music higher and further through the years.

     The songs in this collection belong to the best of the Alan Parsons
     Project.  They are performed by the Symphonic Rock Project - as
     as a tribute to Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson, whose contributions
     as songwriters and conceptual collaborators have been critical
     to the Project's success through the years.  It is refreshing to
     hear this music that is based purely on sound and song rather than
     on an image or obsession with the latest novelty.

Notes:

 (1) There appears to be some sort of connection between this and
     the Alex Bollard CDs (above).  The CD features the same track
     list (albeit in a different order), right down to the mistakes,
     and the cover is very similar in style to at least one incarnation 
     of the Alex Bollard CDs.  Even the adverts for other CDs are
     remarkably similar.  In a strange way this is more a cover of
     the Alex Bollard CD than of the original APP tracks.

 (2) Unlike the Alex Bollard CDs, this album seems to feature several
     different vocal artists and their accents are quite distinct.

 (3) There are several gaffs in the lyrics, including the replacement
     of every occurence of the word "ain't" in Eye in the Sky with the
     word "am"...

    I don't know if you are familiar with the Night of the Proms concept, but
    it's a mix of Classical music and pop music, played live before an
    audience, that goes really wild! :-)
    It started in England, and now we have concerts in The Netherlands as well
    as in Belgium. (The Belgium Night of the proms was the first live
    performance of AP if I'm right, but Aart knows all about that one.)
    It is a tradition, that the last song that will be played at such an
    evening is Land of hope and glory.

    Well, that's that! :-)

Total: 59:30

Notes:

    This is a musicals compilation put out by Sound of Music, a music
    retailer based in Essen, Germany, on their own label.  The version
    of Closer To Heaven sounds like something the Scorpions would do...
    it's a heavy metal ballad duet!

    Pamela Falcon has appeared in Starlight Express and Starmania,
    along with a number of TV shows and commercials, and Paul Kribbe
    has starred in Cats, Starlight Express, Starmania, Shakespeare &
    Rock 'N' Roll, The Man from La Mancha, and Elisabeth.  Also ap-
    pearing on this compilation are Maya Hakvoort and Maik Lohse, who
    played Isabella and Mark Winner, respectively, in the Aachen
    production of Gaudi.

    You will also notice Kerstin Brix's name below as part of the
    choir.  She and Jaqueline Aubert (who was to be the next Showgirl
    in Gambler when it shut down) together created the musical When We
    Fall in Love, which debuted on March 17-18, 2000 in Mšnchengladbach.

Notes:

    This album features themes from science fiction/mystery
    television shows and movies, such as The X-Files, Twilight
    Zone, Outer Limits, etc.  Some tracks are performed by the
    original artists, the rest by the orchestra.

    No real modifications to this track as far as I can tell.
    It's lifted straight from APatPOPtBotAPP; and in fact, is
    the only release other than the original where a track
    from that album is featured.

    Notes:

        Pending release, the Renaissance version is a remaster of the
        original Keats album, with the missing track plus a new interview
        tracks with Alan Parsons and Ian Bairnson.  Originally scheduled
        for 05/21, it was delayed to 07/22, then 08/20, 10/22, and finally,
        it was actually released 11/26.

        Renaissance Records is a progressive rock label based in Nash-
        ville, Tennessee, and is owned by a European entertainment con-
        glomerate in the Netherlands, Etnertainment Software Group (ESG).

        The URL for Renaissance is:
            http://www.esg.nl/esg/renaissance/renaissance.html

        But in July, an unknown and surprise reissue was released by
        See For Miles Records in the UK.  Alistair has a contact who
        has provided the following info:

            It is basically the orginal Keats front  cover (I assume -
            I'd never heard of the album until I read your pages!)
            with "...Plus" tacked on the right hand side about half
            inch down.  So "Keats ...Plus" I guess is right.  The
            track listing is the one you give with "Turn Your Heart
            Around (Single Version)" as the 11th track (one second
            difference in the timing!).  "Give It Up" is not on it.
            Shame really as they were hardly cramped for space!

            The "liner" basically includes notes from someone called
            something like Fraser Massey (who he?) giving the
            background to the personnel and how the record came about
            being recorded and what has happened since.  In other
            words they are new liner notes.  These are interesting as
            reading the various extracts on your web pages makes it
            sound like Woolfson pulled it all together.  These notes
            describe it as Bairnson, Paton and Elliott thinking they
            sounded good with Blunstone (who they hadn't really met
            as vocalists were recorded separately by Parsons), and
            Paton having brought in Bardens having been working with
            him.  Woolfson, who was in Keats restaurant with them at
            the time they were discussing it, arranged the record
            contract for them.  There is also a double width group
            photo which allegedly comes from the original CD or LP.

        Last and least, to prove that this album is going through a
        deevolution phase, Disky rereleased the original European one
        in late 1997 (I'm not sure if it was July, August, September,
        or October).  Now there is *really* no reason to purchase the
        extremely expensive Toshiba release.  If you want the oldest
        and the least in terms of content, this one's it!!

    Notes:

        The liner notes in my inlay for Walking On Ice are missing the 2nd
        and 3rd verses and choruses:

            I'd be following strangers
            And they'd be following me
            Always looking for the answer
            They take the breath out of me

            Walking on ice, I can talk to the strangers
            Walking on ice, who would listen to me
            Walking on ice, someone give me the answer
            Walking on ice, takes the breath out of me

            I'd be following strangers
            Will they be following me
            Always looking for the answer
            They take the breath out of me

            Walking on ice, is it mind over matter
            Walking on ice, doesn't matter to me
            Walking on ice, someone give me the answer
            Walking on ice, takes the breath out of me

            Walking on ice, who could talk to the strangers
            Walking on ice, who would listen to me
            Walking on ice, someone give me the answer
            Walking on ice, takes the breath out of me

            Walking on ice (I'm walking on ice)
            Walking on ice (I'd be saving all my love)
            Walking on ice (I'm walking on ice, who would listen to me)

        Here is an excerpt from the AP/P mailing list by The Avenue editor
        Steve Martin describing how the Renaissance interviews came to be:

            } From: Steve Martin (avenue@interlog.com)
            } Date: Thu, 16 Oct 1997 21:57:29 -0400 (EDT)
            } To: app@roadkill.com
            } Subject: Re: Keats on CD
            } 
            } And now the full story...
            } 
            } I was approached by Renaissance before they did their
            } "Keats" release, and they were asking for help regarding
            } "bonus tracks".  The first thing I pointed out to them
            } was that there were eleven Keats songs across the previous
            } two releases, so I sent them on their way to secure rights
            } to all the songs.
            } 
            } Later they had the idea of adding interview tracks and
            } came back to me.  I had already interviewed Ian for The
            } Avenue, and the in-person interview was on tape (recorded
            } in Las Vegas and Milwaukee).  My idea was to take the 
            } original tapes and have them edited.  
            } 
            } Someone (I can't remember who) thought it would be better
            } to do it from scratch.  Usually the interviews that aren't
            } done in person for The Avenue are done by phone, and those
            } too are recorded.  In this case, it was felt that the high
            } quality of the CD might reveal any imperfections a recording 
            } of an overseas phone call might have.  So someone (again my
            } aging brain can't remember) decided that since Alan and Ian
            } both have studios they could do their end in their own
            } studios.
            } 
            } The questions.  I wrote the questions and faxed them to Alan
            } and Ian.  The two were then given the chance to add/delete
            } any questions (I don't recall them changing it at all).  
            } 
            } The interviewer.  Originally it was supposed to be my voice
            } asking the questions, but Renaissance decided to use someone
            } else.  Whoever it is took my original question sheet and
            } recorded them.  The questions and answers were merged
            } together, and the rest is history.
            } 
            } I could have flown to England to do it all in-person, but
            } seeing that Renaissance never even gave me so much as a free
            } disc, I doubt they would have paid for my flight.

    Liner Notes (translated from Japanese):

        - This album was the (only) recording by APP plus ex-Camel keyboard
            player Peter Bardens, produced by Alan Parsons.

        - This album was recorded between 83/12 and 84/3 at Abbey Road Studios,
            London, and released in 84/8 in UK. This album had not previously been
            released before in Japan.

        - This album is supposed to have been made just after the recording
            for Ammonia Avenue (released 84/2 in UK), and the preparation was
            one simultaneously with the work for AA.

        - Eric Woolfson worked as a "coordinator," i.e. he recruited Ian,
            David (both are members from ToMai), and Stuart from APP, and Pete
            from Camel. Eric was introduced to Peter by Andrew Latimer(sp?), the
            guitarist for Camel.  He chose Colin Blunstone (ex-Zombies) as a
            vocalist.  He named the band after the restaurant he frequented,
            not after the poet John Keats.

        - On Peter Bardens:  He was a member of Shotgun Express (Rod Stewart
            was a member of this band) in the 60s.  In 1972, he and Andrew and
            others formed Camel.  The album Snow Goose released in 1975 was a
            masterpiece.  In 1978, after Camel released Breathless, he left
            the band. In 1979, he released Heart to Heart (this was his third solo
            album). In 1983 he produced Touch, a single by Colin Blunstone.  Mel
            Collins plays saxophone on the B-side of the single.  After Keats,
            he released Seen One Earth in 1987 on the Cinema Label, and in 1993,
            Further Than You Know (his 7th solo album) from Miramar.

        - Richard Cottle plays sax and keyboards as a "guest player,"
            and continues from this point as a tenured APP-member, starting
            from Vulture Culture and on to TAO.

        - For track 4 (Walking on Ice) lead vocal is David Paton.  Peter
            Bardens plays Space Invaders here.

        - For track 7 (Turn Your Head Around) was released as a single,
            but never went into charts.

        - This CD is based on the original EMI release.  The track order on the
            US LP version is different (1,2,3,4,5,7,6,"Give It Up",9,10).  Give It
            Up was written by Ian Bairnson.

        - The liner notes were prepared (in Japanese) by Michikazu Kosuga
            (or Kosuge) on 94/01/21.  Kosuga's editorial notes:

            - This album is best described as "the Alan Parsons Project meets Camel."

            - Though made without Eric Woolfson, the essence of his music is
                heard on this album, and also on Try Anything Once. 

            - A Peter Bardens fan who knew his delicate style on Camel albums
                may be astonished by the introduction to 1 in 'common pop' style,
                like Runaway by Bon Jovi.

            - This "common pop" style is in herited to Somebody Out There (on
                VC), and VC throughout.  Alan and Eric might have regarded Keats
                as a 'guinea pig' for APP, who began recording VC on 84/5, just
                two months after the release of this album with Keats minus Peter
                plus Lenny Zakatek and Chris Rainbow.

            - This album has some excellent tracks like 3 and 4.

            - There should have been more tracks sung by David Paton.

    (in blue) LIMELIGHT' (in white) at the top of the cover. The backside
    of the cover has pictures of Richard Cottle, Alan Parsons and Stuart
    Elliott (taken from the cd-booklet) on it, as well as the credits.

Notes by Kevin Wells:

    This is a promo sampler apparently issued to radio stations.  The
    spine lists all four tracks, followed by the phrase "ADD ME!" - a
    request to add the tracks to the stations play list.  The first
    track is misspelled as "To Close To The Sun" on the spine.  The CD
    contains the phrase "PROGRAM PLAYS THREE TIMES", but each track is
    only on the CD once.  Perhaps there is a cassette version where
    each track does appear 3 times.

    Notes:
    
    This is a very interesting 12" maxi single.  All of the remixes
    are done by Solar Quest, and I'm not sure if the band had any
    part in it other than the original version.  So far, I've only
    seen it available from CD Teleshop in Holland.  Apparently,
    River North is also releasing it on July 1st, according to CD
    Now...
    
    [ Thanks Alistair!  However, given River North's "success" rate
    and lack of pushing the release of singles (i.e. BBTW) and of
    the album, I don't know why they're doing this. -- ed. ]

Total: 13:16 (13:00) (3 tracks, DDD)

    Notes:

    This is the radio-only CD single for BBTW.  The first track has
    one complete verse/chorus pair deleted leaving intact the bridge
    guitar solo by Ian.  The second track is the same as first, but
    without the solo, allowing for the missing verse/chorus to be
    added back in.  Great mixing job on these... I couldn't detect
    any problems with the cut 'n pasted chunks!!

    The artwork is purely River North's, taking some of the balloons
    from OA and "painting" them into sky.

    Notes:

    This single has no new music on it, so it's for collectors only!!
    The CD does not come in a plastic CD case (aka jewel box).  Rather,
    the single disc comes in a recycled cardboard "envelope."

    This packaging of this CD single was apparently timed with the
    European tour, as the cover is embossed with a sticker that reads:

        SM 1987 US      Columbia Pictures Publ. PO766SMX

Total:  (32 pages), ISBN 0-89898-515-3

    Liner Notes:

        This music was inspired by the life and works of
        Antonio Gaudi (1852-1926).  A Catalan architect
        whose grand conception, the Sagrada Familia Cathedral
        in Barcelona, involves a construction timetable
        which runs for hundreds of years.  He is buried
        in the crypt of his unfinished masterpiece.

    [This paragraph is similar to what is found in the album liner,
    although some of the words have been changed a bit as well as a
    few changes in sentence structure.  It appears on page 1, with
    photos of the cathedral and a photo of Alan and Eric on page 2.
    The rest of the liner notes are in the biography section begin-
    ning on page 30.  -- ed. ]

        The Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi "used, manipulated,
        transformed every kind of material, with the same con-
        tinuous and diffuse detailed concentration of a goldsmith
        or silversmith."  In much the same way, musical craftsmen
        Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson have meticulously created
        a classic serious of albums that draw on diverse sources
        and unique themes.

    [I disagree with the next statement....     I
            mean, what ever happened to ToMaI?  :)      -- ed.]

        Beginning on Arista almost a decade ago with the platinum
        *I Robot*, and continuing through such accomplishments as
        *Eye In The Sky, The Turn Of A Friendly Card* and *Ammo-
        nia Avenue*, The Alan Parsons Project has always made
        challenging, provocative music.  Their new album, in the
        tradition of their finest and most successful conceptual
        pieces, is a tribute to Gaudi, whose designs for chapels,
        palaces, schools and other structures made him one of the
        past century's most acclaimed and influential architects.

        It is understandable that The Alan Parsons Project should
        be intrigued by Gaudi, whose experiments, as one study
        noted, "place him within the trend to open up new modes of
        expression in photography, the cineman, and in the visual
        arts."  Returning to the strong thematicall-linked album
        form that first brought them to worldwide recognition,
        with *Gaudi*, The Alan Parsons Project has created a "por-
        trait of the artist" that stands among their richest works.

        Well before the first APP lp, *Tales Of Mysetery And Ima-
        gination*, brought Alan Parsons to the attention of the
        general public, he was involved in making dozens of now-
        classic records with a variety of artists.  After showing
        early promise as a musician -- leaning the piano, flute
        and guitar as a child -- he became more active as a lis-
        tener than a player.  Then exposure to the songs of The
        Beatles rekindled the desire to participate.  "I started
        saying, 'How the hell did they do that?'," he told an in-
        terviewer.  "When I left school I got a job at EMI, and
        found my interest didn't lie in television camera research.
        I moved to the tape-duplication department and one of the
        first things I heard was *Revolver*, on the first good hi-
        fi system I'd ever set eyes upon.  And I thought, "Hey,
        what's going on?"  Within a year and a half of that I
        started working at Abbey Road."

        He served as an assistant engineer on The Beatles' *Abbey
        Road* lp, starting a long association both with the stu-
        dio, and with Paul McCartney.  When The Beatles split up,
        Parsons went on to engineer McCartnet's Wings Albums *Wild-
        life* and *Red Rose Speedway*, as well as such hits as "Hi,
        Hi, Hi."  In addition to his work with McCartney, Parsons
        worked with The Hollies on five of their albums (and two of
        the group's biggest chart hits, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My
        Brother" -- on which Elton John played piano -- and "The
        Air That I Breathe").

        But the band that provided the greatest scopr for Parsons'
        inventive approach to engineering was Pink Floyd, he earned
        a Grammy nomination for *Dark Side Of The Moon*.  "Later,
        the Floyd wanted me to set up their studio and continue to
        go on the road -- I'd done three American tours with them,
        and it was they who brought me to America.  Btouring with
        Pink Floyd was a grueling experience."  (Perhaps his
        experiences on the road with Floyd are one reason why The
        Alan Parsons Project have never attempted to take their
        music on the road.)  [Little do *he* know!      :) -- ed.]

    [The rest of the bio is discusses Parsons' hits as a producer
    (for John Miles, Al Stewart, Pilot, Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel),
    and the themes of the APP albums.  I'll add it when I have time
    to type it all in.  :)      -- ed. ]

Side B  ??:??   2 interview tracks+music                AP/EW/interviewer

Notes: [by Martin Vasko]

    -- typical LP length for each side, ~20-25 minutes
    -- transcription by Alistair Young appears in message
                dated 16 October 1996

        clearly from 1977 as it discusses I Robot at length

    [I'll just add that 1977 was the release date of IR.  It
    IS possible that the interview took place beforehand to
    promote the new record.  I'll try to include the tran-

Notes:  [by Martin Vasko]

        Far more musical content than interview, but definitely
        informative nonetheless, with the first two sides center-
        ing on AP; EW comes into the interviews after Year Of The
        Cat.  "Allan" consistently misspelled on cue sheets and
        hub labels.  Contains commercials and show promos as well.
        Total music/int. time about 103 minutes.  Sirius plays only
        as background music behind speaking just prior to Eye In
        The Sky.  All songs listed play at full length.  Recording
        quality reasonable.  Some interesting bits about vocalists.

LP2: (second side is blank labeled and contains no audio)

Notes:  [by Martin Vasko]

        Far more musical content than interview, but in this case the
        informative content is not particularly impressive and almost
        all (all?) of the material is recycled from The Source's show
        NBC 83-2.  Contains commercials and show promos as well.
        Total music/int. time about 50.5 minutes.  Recording quality
        fair.  One very short, but rather interesting quote:

        "Still another unique step forward for Alan and Eric may be
        the materialization of their first tour.

        Eric: "We'd like to do it and it's certainly about time and
        with the grandeur of the theme that I'm actually working on
        at the moment, which I still won't tell you about, it's very
        possible that we can pull it off next time around."

    Notes: [by Kevin Wells]

        This radio show from the "In The Studio" series consists of
        interviews with Alan Parsons concerning how he produces an album,
        and specifically, how he produced "I Robot".  Parsons answers
        questions about and makes comments on each album track and then
        the track is played, usually in its entirety. Parsons usually
        talks over the intro to each song.  The songs are not presented
        in the same order as they appear on the album. 

        The show is hosted by a DJ named Redbeard who summarizes his
        questions to Alan, then plays Alan's response to the question.

        Most of the information about this show comes from the program
        log and cue sheet.  Any errors indicated with "[sic]" are
        written as they appear on the cue sheet.

        This program is not available commercially, but the show was
        distributed to various radios stations on CD.  Some of these
        CDs have found their way into the hands of collectors.

    Notes:

        The interview with Alan definitely took place around the date of
        the broadcast, as Alan was questioned whether or not any of the
        Project songs were designed for or destined towards the theater,
        and he mentioned that the "project" that he and Eric worked on in
        the "early 90s" eventually became a musical.  It was a bittersweet
        reflection as Alan couldn't even bring himself to say its name.

        The one big boo-boo on Alan's part was when he stated John Miles
        as the lead vocal for Don't Let It Show when in fact (and con-
        firmed in The Avenue #7), it was Dave Townsend.  In fact, John
        isn't even featured on I Robot at all!!  Hey, after hundreds of
        songs, dozens of records and artists, he's allowed to slip!!
        Just once though!       :)

        To date, this is the most recent and last known radio interview gi-
        ven by Alan.  The Westwood One concert and Keats interview don't count!
