THE ALAN PARSONS PROJECT relanza su "Ammonia Avenue" de 1984 en un super deluxe box set

El álbum de 1984 de The Alan Parsons Project, "Ammonia Avenue", se reeditará en marzo en una caja de edición súper lujosa de seis discos.





Este fue el séptimo álbum de The Alan Parsons Project (formado por el fallecido Eric Woolfson y Alan Parsons) y presenta contribuciones de músicos como Ian Bairnson (guitarras), David Paton (bajo) y Stuart Elliott (batería) con Eric Woolfson tocando teclados y voz solista en cuatro de las nueve canciones del álbum. Colin Blunstone, Chris Rainbow y Lenny Zakatek también proporcionaron las voces principales en las canciones restantes.
"Ammonia Avenue" tuvo bastante éxito en ese momento, y contenía un sencillo de gran éxito en toda Europa, "Don´t Answer Me"". Otras canciones memorables son los singles "Prime Time" y "You Don´t Believe", o temas como "Dancing On A Highwire" y "Since The Last Goodbye".

Este nuevo boxset comprende 3 CDs, un blu-ray y una edición de vinilo de 2LP a 45 RPM del álbum. El primer CD presenta la mezcla original remasterizada, el segundo una serie de "diarios de composición de canciones" de Eric Woolfson y el tercero una serie de tomas de estudio, tomas alternativas e instrumentales.
El blu-ray presenta una nueva mezcla de sonido envolvente 5.1 y un nuevo remix estéreo de "Ammonia Avenue", ambos a cargo del propio Alan Parsons. Como bonus, el blu-ray también ofrece dos videos promocionales.
El vinilo doble de 45 RPM ofrece el nuevo remix estéreo (a diferencia de la mezcla original) y la caja también incluye un libro ilustrado con fotos y recuerdos de Alan Parsons, la familia Woolfson y otros. También incluye un póster y una carpeta con el kit de prensa publicado entonces.
El boxset de "Ammonia Avenue" se lanzará el 27 de marzo de 2020.
