Freudiana - Originally this project was to be the 11th album by The Alan Parsons Project. While it was being made, the project changed scope and became the soundtrack for a musical that was staged in Vienna in 1992. This is album was never released worldwide, and for that reason most people do no know it exists. While a few tracks are more "Broadway-ish" than you'd expect from Alan Parsons, there are many gems on this eighteen song collection. A must-have for Parsons' fans! is out of print
