The Alan Parsons Project

As indicated by its name, the Alan Parsons Project was not a band so much as a concept overseen by the titular Parsons, a successful producer and engineer. Born in Britain on December 20, 1948, he began his musical career as a staff engineer at EMI Studios, and first garnered significant industry exposure via his work on the Beatles' 1969 masterpiece, Abbey Road. Parsons subsequently worked with Paul McCartney on several of Wings' earliest albums; he also oversaw recordings from Al Stewart, Cockney Rebel, and Pilot, but solidified his reputation by working on Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.

Influenced by his work on Stewart's concept album Time Passages, Parsons decided to begin creating his own thematic records; along with songwriter Eric Woolfson, he soon founded the Alan Parsons Project. Although Parsons played keyboards and infrequently sang on his records, the Project was designed primarily as a forum for a revolving collection of vocalists and session players -- among them Arthur Brown, ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone, Cockney Rebel's Steve Harley, the Hollies' Allan Clarke, and guitarist Ian Bairnson -- to interpret and perform Parsons and Woolfson's conceptually linked, lushly synthesized music.

The Project debuted in 1975 with Tales of Mystery and Imagination, a collection inspired by the work of Edgar Allan Poe; similarly, the science fiction of Isaac Asimov served as the raw material for 1977's follow-up, I Robot. With 1980's The Turn of a Friendly Card, a meditation on gambling, the Alan Parsons Project scored a Top 20 hit, "Games People Play"; 1982's Eye in the Sky was the Project's most successful effort, and notched a Top Three hit with its title track. While 1984's Ammonia Avenue went gold, the Project's subsequent LPs earned little notice, although records like 1985's Vulture Culture, 1987's Gaudi, and 1996's On Air found favor with longtime fans. Time Machine followed in 1999. After taking a five-year hiatus, Parsons returned in 2004 with A Valid Path. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

When I was still in middle school, my dad gave me an Alan Parsons mix tape and I wore that thing OUT. Also, Oh, Life from Try Anything Once is one of my favorite songs ever.

As a old guy who grew up with the Project , I can put 3 bands in an exclusive club ,, Moody Blues , Alan Parsons Project , Pink Floyd ,,,,,,in no particular order
Actually its Jacqui Copeland on lead vocals on Mr. Time. Look up the Wiki on the album, gives track listing and lead vocals of each.
Chris Rainbow on vocals
Pretty sure Eric Woolfson lead vocal

Head phones and a mellow room or ear buds and walking down the street Alan Parsons Project kicks it!

Don't get me wrong, love Pandora, just wish we didn't have to look up the artists that contributed to individual songs. Old timers like me remember reading album covers and finding out who the musicians were that played on our favorite songs. For example, who's singing lead on this tune?
HEAD MUSIC 101
He basically brought the sax back into Pop music with Al Stewarts Year of the cat
Anyways, the key to this plan is the giant laser. It was invented by the noted Cambridge physicist Dr. Parsons. Therefore, we shall call it... The Alan Parsons Project! Dr.E
the only band that compares with pink floyds style
don,t answer me off ammonia ave, classic!
Saw them in concert last night in Hollywood Florida, it was an amazing experience and the music was still tight . Got a crowd of graying rockers off their feet, dancing and screaming. I think that says it all!
Oh yeah...Time. . . L O V E
Parsons has a real gift - working with Beatles and Paul and Wings seems to sum it up to me. Loved everything ever done by Parsons even when I was too young to know anything!
cw077
one of the greatest bands ever.
Different than anything else out there - outstanding!
Sirius is the instrumental that precedes Eye in the Sky on the album - but one fades right into the other without a break.
time, great parsons song, hardly ever hear it on radio, great to hear it here!
Ok am I crazy or is the song playing Eye in the Sky but its labled Sirius?
Day after day, the show must go on...
great song, great album, loved this band, parsons is a legend, engineering sgt pepper and dark side of the moon! 2 of the all time greatest albums!
Been a Project fan since 1977 and just recently added Stereotomy to my collection. Time, is flowing like a river.
In the matter of a moment, lost till the end of time..it's the evening of another day and the end of mine...

A girl friend bought an expensive stereo. After buying it she laughed because it wasn't the stereo that sounded so good but Tales of Mystery and Imagination they'd used as a demo on it.

Best band in the world!
Just what you need to make you feel better....

I listen to APP often but hadn't attended to the lyrics of Day After Day in a long time. Really struck me how differently that message feels almost 30 years on. Seems to also say a lot about the caliber of any piece of art that it is relevant in personally meaningful ways over so long a time.
Eye in the sky, hehehehe Niel Young-"we are in control" hehehehehe
LOVED Pyramid!!
What about Eve? Pyramid? Stereotomy?
Very creative, innovative performers.
Sakman6. You are correct the musicians were exactly that ... Musicians. Now we have overproduced performers

As good as APP sounded back in the day, this music resonates even more now! Am I wrong in stating that the music felt more artful back then? Are there any current artists out there producing this caliber of art?
I grew up listening to this music on my father's reel to reel tape recorder as I would lay on the floor with the home speakers on either side of my head. Love this group!
CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH HIS MUSIC MEANS TO ME, ALWAYS SPECTACULAR! !

This song, Pyramania, sounds like it could have been done by Oingo Boingo. Thus, i lioke it.
MAGICAL MYSTICAL SOULFULL. KEEP TELLING AS IT IS NOW. FRANK VOLPE,f.r.c. A.M.O.R.C.or g .
I just saw the project perform here with orchestra. What a wonderful experience. They sound and look better then ever. Alan parsons himself is a lot more active then I have seen him in years. He did a lot of singing himself and he is a lot more personal then in past performances . It was absolutely great!!! As some of us are getting older - i realize that we will be seeing these kinds of folks less and less as time moves on. So, I was very happy to see them again.
Pandora cannot play (unfortunate l y ) all the music available from the artists because of all the legal and financial transactions they need to complete before being allowed to play it. It is up to us, the fans, to go out there and explore the work from our favorite artists. Thanks to Pandora, I rediscovered music from a long time ago and I'm so grateful for it! And yes, they *should* have more music, I hope they do too.
I want to know why Pandora doesn't have the more recent albums available. They mention some at the end of the bio so why don't they have them on here? Just recenlty got On Air and it is excellent!
hauntingly beautiful and melancholy at the same time....geni u s
Excellent, trippy music but without the drugs.
thirty almost forty years fast foward and I still completey love this music,someho w the beat and the melodies are like my old friends that I never get tired of when they show up un-invited!! t h e s e dudes where way ahead of the pack(souther n rock IE the eighties)
They also did the soundtrack for the movie Ladyhawke Really great!
feels like an alien species that looks like humans came down and rocked out
monn3t
Definitively The Eye In the Sky is one song that brings fun memories to me.
Just don't do music like this any more, what a shame!!
