Eye in the Sky-Alan Parsons Project Full Album

Songs on this album are in a number of different styles, from cool and funky to lyrical and heavily orchestrated. The Hipgnosis-designed sleeve was green with an image of the Eye of Horus, which was gold-foil stamped for early pressings of the LP. It is variously reported as their best-selling album and was the last platinum record from the band (joining I Robot and The Turn of a Friendly Card).[3]

Vocal performers were Eric Woolfson, David Paton, Chris Rainbow, Lenny Zakatek, Elmer Gantry and Colin Blunstone.

Eye in the Sky contained the Project’s biggest hit, the title track with lead vocals by Eric Woolfson. The album itself was a major success, reaching the Top 10 (and sometimes the #1) in numerous countries.[4]

This album was the first of three the Project recorded on analogue equipment and mixed directly to the digital master tape.(a fact not widely known until the liner notes of Vulture Culture, where this trick was revealed).
