1. Ahh yes. Another area where our tastes merged.

    In addition to the APP, I’m also impressed by the albums that Alan Parsons has been involved with producing.

  2. I heard the Project’s singles on the radio while I was in high school in the late seventies and early eighties, but while I was in college in ’83, I dropped my roomie’s Eye in the Sky LP onto the platter. By the time I was thirty seconds into the first track, “Sirius”, I was hooked. I sat and listened to both sides, enraptured. The singles are good, but to really GET the Alan Parsons Project, you have to listen to the albums.

    Parsons’ most recent album, The Secret, is excellent and I especially like the cut “Sometimes” featuring Lou Gramm from Foreigner. Lou is still dealing with the aftereffects of a brain tumor in the ’90’s and has lost a vocal step or two from his peak, but the sheer honesty and emotion in his performance, combined with Parson’s producing magic, more than make up for it.

  3. Love that song! There’s a version by Achinoam Nini — an Israeli performer who performs under the name Noa — that I find absolutely haunting. YouTube has several uploads of her song available. I like her studio version and listen to it often.

    I’m also a big fan of the Alan Parson Project song, “Don’t Answer Me.” Also on YouTube. Be warned: it’s also an earworm!

    Thank you, Kim! Love the blog!

    Off to try a beer shandy!
