Ammonia Avenue Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set by The Alan Parsons Project

The Alan Parsons Project,  a British rock band active between 1975 and 1990, whose core membership consisted of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson has been a band I have enjoyed over the years with such great songs as Eye In The Sky, Games People Play, Time and many more hits has returned with the Ammonia Avenue Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set To Be Released March 27, 2020, by Esoteric Recordings.  First released in February 1984, Ammonia Avenue was the seventh album by The Alan Parsons Project, the brainchild of composer, musician, and manager Eric Woolfson and celebrated producer and engineer Alan Parsons.  The album sessions featured the contribution of musicians such as Ian Bairnson (guitars), David Paton (bass), Stuart Elliott (drums) with Eric Woolfson playing keyboards and lead vocals on four of the album’s nine songs. Colin Blunstone, Chris Rainbow and Lenny Zakatek also provided lead vocals on the remaining songs.  This three-CD set features such tracks as Dancing On A High Wire, Since The Last Goodbye, the title track Ammonia Avenue, Don’t Answer Me, Prime Time and much more.  I was impressed with the production, recording, songwriting, and performance on this collection which consists of three CDs, a blu ray disc, a vinyl edition of a new stereo mix of Ammonia Avenue as two 12-inch 45rpm discs plus a lavish illustrated book with a new essay with unseen photos and features recollections from Alan Parsons, the Woolfson family and from musicians Ian Bairnson and David Paton. It also includes a reproduction poster and a reproduction press kit folder. This deluxe edition of Ammonia Avenue is the definitive treatment of a special album.  I am looking forward to owning a copy of this collection myself.  You will be able to get your hands on this amazing collection on April 3, 2020, from Amazon and all music outlets.  To learn more about this artist and music go to their official website
