Sweetbutterflykripperino: Alan Parsons is also a Lion.
Fjord Hellas: Alan, your humility is as extraordinary as your genius music and talent. Thank you for being uncompromising about the quality of your amazing music!
Mysterious Squirrel: Let's get this right, without being shot down in flames. When you have access to unlimited studio equipment, talented musicians and open ended studio time, it would be pretty damn hard not to produce excellence. I am a big fan of the Project, Floyd et al but these guys spent months in the studio making their albums. Parsons is not a genius. He does nothing any other sound engineer could do given the space, time and budget.
Barry Hughes: Alan Parsons totally rocks, he has the Midas Touch
Robbie James: What's there to not like in everything Alan said! There would be no other producer in the world I would love to have produce my music more than Alan Parsons. Any debate?
Sorin Fortiu: Thank You, Mr. Alan Parsons!
Bret B: In No particular order , the highest quality music ever made ,,, Moody Blues ,, Pink Floyd ,,Alan Parsons
zephyrquartz: My gosh Parsons is so humble. He's a fantastically talented genius. I have just discovered that he was at the bottom of sooooo many of the songs I absolutely loved while growing up. It's amazing. I had no idea till just now.
bones22j: I cannot grasp using only 4 tracks. Why not record another 4 onto that 4. And then take those 8 and you could have 16 tracks etc. eventually that's what happened anyway. I think The Beatles were the first ones to do anything like that.
Smigs Sat: Roger Waters wrote "By ignoring the boycott, you are turning your back on a beleaguered people who are desperately in need of your support. Even at this late hour, please reconsider, I wrote to try to persuade Alan to stand with me and Nick Mason and Brian Eno and Elvis Costello and Massive Attack and Stephen Hawking and thousands of other artists world-wide who support a cultural and academic boycott of Israel" Israel just killed 2300 people last summer including 500 children, it was created by nationalists who invade a country, must read SHLOMO SAND.freak alan parsons, he is not even a good artist!
Panzer4F2: Excellent interview. Thanks for sharing this. Tales of Mystery and Imagination is a personal favourite, but all of his albums had their gems.
Clyde Barrow: I thought Freedman did a great job interviewing Alan Parsons. Great questions and was he was professional and credible without all the "I am a fan" hype that some interviewers push on the interviewee.
Clyde Barrow: At 19:55 to 20:15 they're discussing something and I cannot understand what they're saying. I think it's about a record player? Something "On Deck?" Can anyone help? Thanks,,
J Mac: 8 track tapes were the worst format ever, much worse than cassettes IMO.
t0dd1971: my dad loved there music he passed in jan of this year God Bless for this upload rock on R.I.P pops
colliecandle: For me, Alan Parsons has been and remains a major influence. When all the trash and garbage of modern 'music' (I use the word music very loosely in this context) has been forgotten and consigned to the land fill sites (where much of it literally ends up) Alan Parsons Project will still be around and still be vastly appreciated for what it is - REAL MUSIC with life of it's own because it has spirit of it's own !
Kenny Bradshaw: Fantastic.
D' ubserver: Alan you have been such an inspiration, great interview
