The Alan Parsons Project z razkošnim ponatisom albuma “Pyramid”

The Alan Parsons Project (press/promo)
0 43

The Alan Parsons Project, legendarna art rockovska naveza Alana Parsonsa in Erica Woolfsona, ki je na prelomu sedemdesetih v osemdeseta in v prvi polovici ‘mešala štrene’ na svetovnih glasbenih lestvicah, bo deležna ‘deluks’ ponatisa svojega klasičnega albuma “Pyramid”. Gre za tretji studijski album skupine, ki je originalno izšel leta 1978. Ponatis bo dostopen 23. 8. 2024, zanj bodo poskrbeli pri založbi Cooking Vinyl. Vseboval naj bi kar 50. doslej neizdanih skladb.

Ponatis bo dostopen v razširjenih varietetah, bodisi da govorimo o formatu ‘zgoščenka’ bodisi vinilni plošči. Tu bo zaboj, ki bo vseboval prav vse na enem mestu. Vinil, CD, Blu-ray, sedem-palčni single, z dodanimi miksi v Dolby Atmos in 5.1 Surround Sound zvočnih tehnikah, ki se naslanjajo na originalne ‘večstezne’ master trakove (za vse to je poskrbel Alan Parsons – ‘še živeča’ polovica dua). Zadeva je doživela tudi novo stereo HD in CD remasterizacijo originalnega albuma, za kar je poskrbel Miles Showell. Ves zaboj bo spremljala ilustrirana knjiga v velikosti 12 x 12 palcev na na 60. straneh.

Razširjena izdaja zgoščenke vključuje remaster 2024 izvirnega albuma in štiri dodatne bonus skladbe, kot tudi 12-stransko knjižico s celotnimi besedili, medtem ko vinilni LP vključuje 180-gramsko prozorno vinilko in omejeno izdajo ekskluzivne 180-gramske vinilke ‘D2C gold nugget’ – obe vsebujeta Showellove polhitrostne remasterje izvirnega albuma, posnete v studiu Abbey Road, z eseji in citati Alana Parsonsa, družine Woolfson in znanih glasbenikov.

V času, ko je album “Pyramid” izšel, je vladalo zlasti v ZDA in Veliki Britaniji veliko zanimanje nad čudesi starega Egipta. Osredotočenosti na Gizo, Tutankamona, serijo tamkajšnjih piramid na čelu s Sfingo, ni manjkalo. Tista piramida na dolarskem kovancu, pa kup prispevkov o magičnih lastnostih piramid, pa nenazadnje tudi naslovnica albuma Pink Floyd z nazivom “Dark Side Of The Moon” – album, ki ga je inženiral prav Parsons. Kumulus vsega. Tako se je “Pyramid” prodal v dveh milijonih izvodov ter bil nominiran za Grammyja.

Album “Pyramid” je bil posnet v londonskem studiu Abbey Road, na njem pa so sodelovali mnogi vokalisti, mdr: John Miles, Colin Blunstone, Lenny Zakatek, Jack Harris in Dean Ford. Parsons in Woolfson sta privabila k sodelovanju še nekatere ‘session’ glasbenike, med katerimi je vredno izpostaviti imena: Ian Bairnson, David Paton in bobnar Stuart Elliott – možje iz škotske pop rock zasedbe Pilot. Za zvok skupine je v oziru produkcije skrbel takrat prav Alan Parsons.

Ponatis albuma “Pyramid” lahko že prednaročite.
