THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT – ‘EYE IN THE SKY’, 35TH ANNIVERSARY BOX SET EDITION
July 27, 2017
Sony Legacy are thrilled to announce a fascinating and comprehensive new box set commemorating the 35th anniversary of The Alan Parsons Project multi-platinum masterpiece, ‘Eye In The Sky’.
Originally released in 1982, the original was a ground-breaking musical accomplishment, a remarkably prescient view of art, religion, politics and culture for the 21st century.
Released on Friday, November 17, the 35th Anniversary Edition is a luxurious box set including 4 CDs, 2LPs, a 60 page hardback book and many other collector’s items.
The full list of contents is below.
CD1: Original Album + 2007 bonus tracks
CD2: Eric Woolfson’s Songwriting Diaries
CD3: Previously Unreleased Bonus Material
CD4: 5.1 Surround Sound & HD version of the original album on Blu Ray. Overseen by Alan Parsons at Capitol Studios, LA, this represents the artists’ original vision for the album.
LP1/LP2: The original album newly struck on four sides at half-speed 45rpm at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell
60-page hardback book featuring newly-written essays, previously unreleased images recently discovered in Eric Woolfson’s personal archive and new interviews with many of the musicians who recorded the tracks on the album.
1982 replica poster, postcard and folder.
Slipcase boxset (featuring a replication of the gold foil stamp of the ‘Eye of Horus’)
“It was a wonderful experience to hear all the multitrack tape tracks from Eye 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 for the final mixes of the songs was an amazing experience. Audiophiles will be pleased to know that there is a 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.”
