2007 digitally remastered two CD compilation from the outfit formed by producer Alan Parsons. The Alan Parsons Project was originally launched 30 years ago as a studio-only band, and through the vinyl age, they where held in high esteem as real music innovators. This double disc set is a 34 track collection coming at a time when concept albums and progressive rock are experiencing a major resurgence. All tracks are newly remastered from the original tapes, and in full co-operation with Alan Parsons and main vocalist Eric Woolfson. Feature 'Time', 'Eye In The Sky', 'Games People Play', 'I Robot' and many others.

Ten years after Arista's double-disc set The Definitive Collection, Arista/Legacy's double-disc compilation The Essential Alan Parsons Project arrived in 2007. Similar length, similar titles, and, if you already have the first one, there's not much reason to replace it. But if you're in the market for a Parsons comp that goes beyond the hits, this is the set to get: it has all those hits plus the radio staples and a good selection of album tracks, and it's sharply sequenced.
