The Alan Parsons Project Vulture Culture on Limited Edition 180g LP

After getting a job at the famous Abbey Road Studios at the young age of 19, Alan Parsons worked as assistant engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles. Once he qualified as a fully-fledged recording engineer, he went on to work with Paul McCartney and The Hollies among many others. But it was his contribution as engineer on Pink Floyd's classic Dark Side OF The Moon that really got him world attention.

In 1975 he met Eric Woolfson who not only became his manager, but joined forces with Alan as a songwriting and performing partner for what became known as The Alan Parsons Project. The APP's debut album, Tales Of Mystery And Imagination based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe paved the way for a signing to Clive Davis' newly launched Arista label and a string of hit albums, namely I Robot (1977), Pyramid (1978), The Turn of a Friendly Card (1980), Eye in the Sky (1982), Ammonia Avenue (1984), Vulture Culture (1985), Stereotomy (1986) and Gaudi (1987).

The eighth APP album Vulture Culture remains one of the group's poppiest efforts. The A-side contains concise and catchy songs, whereas the B-side goes in a more experimental direction with songs like "Hawkeye." The album yielded two singles with "Let's Talk About Me" and "Days Are Numbers (The Traveller)." Vulture Culture was initially intended to be released as a 2LP-set with predecessor Ammonia Avenue, but in the end both albums were issued separately a year apart. It's also the group's only album to not feature the orchestrations of Andrew Powell.
