the Alan Parsons Project ~ 1982 ~ Eye in the Sky
time: 42'33" size: 54 mb
Songs on this album are in a number of different styles, from cool and funky to lyrical and heavily orchestrated. The sleeve was green with an image of the Eye of Horus, which was gold-foil stamped for early pressings of the LP. It is variously reported as their best-selling album, and was the last Platinum record from the band (joining I Robot and The Turn of a Friendly Card).
Vocal performers were Eric Woolfson, David Paton, Chris Rainbow, Lenny Zakatek, Elmer Gantry and Colin Blunstone.
Eye in the Sky contained the Project's greatest hit, the title track with lead vocals by Eric Woolfson. It hit #3 on the Billboard charts in the US in October of 1982 and #6 in Canada. Says Parsons of the song, "...I hated the song when we first started recording it — I was quite ready to drop it altogether. Then we hit upon the hypnotic guitar chugs and it all came together."
"Mammagamma" is an instrumental piece performed almost entirely on a Fairlight CMI computer. Astute listeners have noticed this track's melodic similarity to Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall". The title is also a clear reference to Pink Floyd's Ummagumma. A disco remix featuring portions of both songs was released in 1982 by an Italian disco production team under the name "Pink Project".
