  • Alan Parsons - 40th Ann. "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" LP/CD/Blu-ray Boxset

    From his Facebook page:

    Who would have thought I'd be talking about anything I worked on 40 years after it happened? OK. So the Beatles were a part of everyone's history, but in 2013, when Dark Side Of The Moon had its 40th birthday, I was reminded how important that record would be to my future. It was 3 short years after Dark Side was released that Eric Woolfson (also my manager at the time) and I assembled an album on which the star was intended to be Edgar Allan Poe - I thought I would be a line of small print as producer and co-writer but that changed as the APP identity was born upon the release of Tales. I am proud to be still flying the flag supporting this album in the live arena along with the many more albums that ensued under the banner of The Alan Parsons Project.
    It's a great thrill to tell you that this summer, Universal will be releasing the album in a 40th anniversary multi-disc box set including a 4-sided vinyl set at 45rpm (amazing quality), 3 CDs - one of which is all-new bonus material and a 5.1 surround mix on Blu-ray . The surround version will be a totally new mix which I hope to complete within the next few weeks.

    I hope the LP will be all analog. Somehow, I'm not holding my breath.

      Same here, although I'm almost more concerned about Universal doing this release, as they have a lot of their stuff pressed at GZ Vinyl.

      Hi Rich! Glad to have you aboard!!!



      I'll never forget when I was knee-high to a grasshopper first hearing the original recording on a real all out system back in the '80s. A real knockout of a recording and music. That's why it concerns me when I hear new mixes etc. in the press blurb. New and improved generally means only one thing nowadays.

      BTW, I wonder what happened to the scheduled MOFI 45 rpm release of I Robot? I'll have to ask the MOFI guys at Axpona.
