The Alan Parsons Project ‎– Don’t Answer Me (12″)

As a way of an introduction to this band which I’m not that familiar with, you get a bit of a mini “Best Of” on this 4 track 12″ from 1984.

From the album “Ammonia Avenue” you get the Phil Spector styled with a bit of E.L.O. in there. A bit of a timeless classic.

So as a Bonus you get a smattering of their back catalogue. The more New Wave sounding “You Don’t Believe” featuring Lenny Zakatek. The dramatic ballad of “Old And Wise” featuring Zombies vocalist Colin Blunstone and another classic track “Games People Play” from 1980 and featuring Zakatek again on vocals, this having a disco feel to it.

    if you’re not familiar with this band, you need to check out songs like “Thus Quoth The Raven”, “eye in the sky”, “I Robot” and their famous instrumentals like “Lucifer” … all killer stuff (early synth prog) … he also produced Pink Floyd ‘s Dark Side Of The Moon
