I first discovered the music of Alan Parsons as a NY teen in 1977. The music has been a part of my life ever since. My first album was "I Robot", and I've gone on to purchase just about everything since!
I've done a lot of moving since then, having lived all over the USA. Hooking up the stereo and playing AP was the absolute FIRST thing to do, to make a new place feel like "home".
In the early years, all the music was done in a studio and there were no concerts (none I'm aware of, at least!). Back then, it was my dream to see AP live. If only I could get an invite to a studio session! I'd fly to England in a second if I had the chance. Then, in 1995, I got my big break! AP... LIVE in concert! I was thrilled, and it was a blast. Got another chance in 1999, and managed to get great seats near the front. Alan even signed my ticket!
Now I've got tickets for the new concert, and this time I get to take my son! He's ten, and has heard AP music since he was born.
Thank you, Alan, for bringing me 27 years of listening enjoyment!

Editor: On a similar note, I always use "Eye In The Sky" as the album I play whenever I move houses, or relocate the stereo. A vinyl copy, a tape, a CD ... I get all components running the same album! I think the tradition began because when I bought my first CD player (1983 or 1984) the first CD was "Eye In The Sky".
