Jumping into the past … „Parsons Project were an English rock band active between 1975 and 1990, whose rosters consisted of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson. They were accompanied by a varying number of session musicians. Alan Parsons met Eric Woolfson in the canteen of Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1974. Parsons had already acted as Assistant Engineer on the Beatles’ albums Abbey Road (1969) and Let It Be (1970 and had produced several acts for EMI Records. Woolfson, a songwriter and composer, was working as a session pianist; he had also composed material for a concept album idea based on the work of Edgar Allan Poe.. Most of the Project’s titles, especially the early work, share common traits … these were likely influenced by Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon (1973).
