THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT Strips Down Their “Pyramid”

When it comes to THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT no-one knows which of their classic albums is going to be up next for an anniversary reissue, but there’s a strong suspicion that a platter’s being readied for deluxe treatment is “Pyramid” whose original arrival in 1978 makes it a belated candidate. However, the calendar is not the only indicator: much better significance has the record’s rough cut which will appear on the shelves on Record Store Day.

Work In Progress

Titled “Work In Progress” and quite likely to be part of a box set after April 20th, when a vinyl LP is out, it’s comprised of demos, rough mixes and sketches, with six of the nine tracks previously unreleased and providing a deeper look at the band’s masterpiece. Collectors, get ready!

1. Voyager (early stage)
2. What Goes Up… / Little Voice (early version demo)
3. The Eagle Will Rise Again (rough mix feat. backing vocals)
4. One More River (Eric Woolfson’s songwriting diary)
5. Can’t Take It With You (rough mix)
6. In The Lap Of The Gods Part I (demo)
7. Pyramania (Eric Woolfon’s songwriting diary)
