Biography

London, England (1975 – 1990)

The Alan Parsons Project was a British rock group active from 1975 until 1990, founded by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson both from London, England. The group is based on a number of regular group members such as Stuart Elliot and Ian Bairnson, complemented with varying lead vocals such as Colin Blunstone (the Zombies), Chris Rainbow and Gary Brooker (Procol Harum). The group is well known for its concept albums, which cover themes such as Edgar Allan Poe, Gaudi, and Freud.

Eric Woolfson wrote most of the music and lyrics while Alan Parsons overviewed the production process. Prior to starting his Project, Parsons worked as an engineer with names such as The Beatles(Abbey Road, the Get Back roofttop concert) and Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon, Atom Heart Mother).

Since the 1990s Alan Parsons has been performing live shows, touring all over the world, but without Eric Woolfson.

    скучища полная и говнище ужасное, но за две вещи им можно многое простить. Первое - это глаз в небесах, а второе - Артур Браун на дебютной пластинке 1976 года.

    The most tuneful hovercraft I've ever heard. Disappointed at the lack of love for 'Pyramid' though, incredible record.

    The Alan Parsons Project is so special, in the way that you can't exactly put their music on shuffle. Every album has a particular sound, a particular flow; a specific story exists for every album, and if you hear just one track, well, you've got to hear them all - in order. [2] Well said!

    The first half of Tales of Mystery and Imagination are the best four songs they've ever cut. Breathtaking orchestral rockers all, accessible and addictive. And they're adapted from Edgar Allan Poe short stories, if you needed another reason to listen.

    I like the comment below me. They're really pretty cool yep. Lots of sounds that you can identify in other music from their era, but at the same time, they don't have a distinctive sound. Really good.

I've come to love this group so much this past year.
