Allan Parsons Project

Band Name Origins:

  • Eric Woolfson had an idea for an album based around the stories of Edgar Alan Poe. He made a fesw stabs at it, but couldn't get the sound he wanted until he hooked up with producer Alan Parsons, who had just finished Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Parsons gave Woolfson the sound he wanted, and they used mostly studio musicians to record the album. After it was finished, Woolfson wanted to call it simply "Tales of Mystery and Imagination, Edgar Alan Peo," but the label said they had to have a band name so the record stores would know where to stock it. Since their long effort had been known in the studio as "Alan Parsons' Project" they decided to use that as the name, and the album was such a success that the name stuck. Submitted by: Greg McGann
