Sometimes you have to take a chance and follow your instincts. Engineer and producer Alan Parsons, long known for the sonic wizardry he bestowed upon highly regarded and hugely successful projects by Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Hollies, Pilot and others, was made an offer that no one thought he could refuse. It was late 1974 and Pink Floyd was preparing to enter Abbey Road Studios in London to record the follow-up to the mega-successful 'Dark Side of The Moon.'

Parsons had devoted more than six months of his life to helping make 'Dark Side' the beloved classic that we know today. Bringing the record to life was equal parts exhilaration and frustration for Parsons, who remembers longing for 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' episodes to air on BBC because it meant the band would take a break to watch, leaving Parsons some quality alone time to prepare mixes without interference.
