It was a very good partnership. He was always the principal songwriter and I was always the principal instrumental writer. By some miracle we always chose keys that the singers could sing in; it could have gone terribly wrong.
I do remember on 'Don't Hold Back', from the 'Eve' album, we thought that it would be a male song. Al would walk in and play the songs.

What didn't exist was the structure of the song, where the solos come in and how many verses there should be. When we laid down the track, we anticipated that there would be lots of guitar solos. So I suggested that one of them be a sax solo.

Parsons has been working on a new box set of one of these albums: Eye In The Sky. It's a treasure trove of associated recordings and song mixes across 4 CDs and vinyl, too. The painstaking research into compiling this has been a labour of love for Alan and Eric's daughter Sally. A bonus for the box set is Sally's work.
She painstakingly researched Eric's demo cassettes and you can hear the songs from inception to the final product as they developed.
It's literally the scratch pad of Eric coming up with the ideas for the songs and it's very interesting. It was a feat in itself to find all the master track tapes because, over the years, they tend to go to different libraries and record labels. Quite honestly, they take the entire concept of "classic rock" to an entirely new level We both experienced chills and tears as the music overwhelmed us In fact, the thing about The Alan Parsons Live Project is that it isn't about pomp and circumstance at all Masterfully orchestrated performances, rendered to pure perfection, live on stage.
Credit goes to every single member of the band: Filling out the arsenal are drummer Danny Thompson and bassist Guy Erez, both of whom keep the bottom end thumping at a kick-ass pulse rate This is some pretty intricate stuff they're trying to pull off on stage, with any number of melodic changes thrown into the mix And let's not forget keyboardist Manny Foccarazzo A top notch, stellar band in every conceivable way.Alan Parsons Project (Live 2014 on SWR TV full)

Olsson gasping for air at the end In fact, I can honestly say that I can't remember EVER seeing this many standing ovations during a single performance before The encore s of "Psychobabble" first show only and "Games People Play" were absolute show-stoppers.
The electricity generated by "Games People Play" still resonates 24 hours later as I type this! Both sold out crowds couldn't get enough.
Couple this with the perfectly-executed lighting effects and this show goes down in my personal record books as one of the very best I've ever seen. Doing a little quick math here as I'm writing this, I figure that I've probably been to somewhere between and concerts in my lifetime Checking the official website, it looks like we caught the tail end of this part of their U.
They will perform three half hour shows each day!

These guys gave it all in the first show It was nothing short of amazing.
