Engineer for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Producer of Al Stewart’s Year of the Cat, and bandleader of The Alan Parsons Project among many other credits, Alan Parsons has put the “studio” in the term “studio musician” throughout his long and multi-faceted career in the music business. Now, we at Real Gone Music are proud to present on bluray DVD one of The Alan Parsons Project’s greatest albums, the muliti-layered masterpiece Eye in the Sky.
The group’s sixth studio album, Eye in the Sky was written by Eric Woolfson (who passed December 2, 2009) and Alan Parsons. A conceptual musical meditation on a variety of belief systems—the album’s title refers to casino surveillance, earth-circling satellites, and the all- seeing eye of the Egyptian God Horus—Eye in the Sky has proved both timely and timeless, a remarkably prescient view of art, religion, politics, and culture for the 21st century.
Originally released as part of the 35th Anniversary Boxset (released worldwide in December 2017), the 5.1 Surround Sound mix was engineered by Alan Parsons in April 2017 at Capitol Studios LA and is an auditory experience like no other.
Says Parsons, “It was a wonderful experience to hear all the multitrack tape tracks fromEye in The Sky again—and for the first time in nearly 35 years, in their raw unmixed form.Hearing the various elements, performances, and moments of magic that were selected forthe final mixes of the songs was an amazing experience... Audiophiles will be pleased to hearthe brand new 5.1 Surround Sound mix, which I am extremely pleased with incidentally, and also a Hi Def stereo version taken from the original analog stereo master tape which was recorded simultaneously alongside the digital mix”.
Eclectic and visionary, Eye in the Sky covers a variety of musical and thematic bases, and is one of The Alan Parson’s Project platinum-selling albums. Now it can be heard in a new, fully immersive way.
