5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery and Imagination of Alan Parson and Eric Woolfson, 2 July 2007
This review is from: Tales Of Mystery And Imagination (2CD) (Audio CD)
A real gift for the lovers of Alan Parsons Project.

This edition includes both versions of this classic album - original version of 1976 and remix of 1987. Truely they sounds differ. What's the differencies?

Original version sounds more fresh and more rocky, especially "The Tell-Tale Heart" with Arthur Brown's voice. There were no readings from Edgar Poe by Orson Welles (it was recorded after the album was finished). In 1987 were added new parties of keyboards (organ solo performed by Alan Parsons in 1987 in "The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether" much more impressive than on original record), guitars, narration by Orson Welles, sound was corrected.

Bonus tracks are - previously unpublished song "Edgar", fragments of studio sessions, examples of all songs with vocals by Eric Woolfson, sound effects from "Arrival" (rain, thunder, organ etc.), interview by Alan and Eric from 1976 with interesting information about their work, Orson Welles reading without music, commercial for the radio with his voice. No B-sides or finished and unpublished material.

Both albums are remastered by Alan Parsons himself (but you have to prepare yourself for a little bit different sound on familiar for majority of us 1987 version - so I will keep traditional, not remastered, edition of this album on CD).

So if you are true Alan Parsons lover - this edition is a must for you.

P.S. Good and informative booklet with lyrics and new information about musicians participated in both records.
