Hi big APP fan here also, Tales of Mystery & Imgination (1970s mix) and Eye in the sky my pick. Not sure whether anyone can recall the IMF demo in Harrogate in the late 1970's with 'the fall of the house of Usher'? Amazing scale in a large room.   Recall source being a Revox -A77 but cannot recall the amp possibly a big Luxman and TLS80 2's.

Lot of love here for APP! Tales... is a classic. Also like Stereotomy, Amonia Avenue, Gaudi. Plus AP's non-project albums, especially The Time Machine. Freudiana is also excellent.

I'm a great admirer of APP's orchestral guy Andrew Powell. Just got his score for Ladyhawke on LP off eBay - as yet unplayed; really hope it's in good nick. Medieval fantasy film with APP style instrumentals doesn't appear a good match, but not as strange as it might seem.

Project fans should also listen to "Keats", the eponymous album by Stuart Bairnson and the "project" band. More "poppy" than APP, but produced by AP and a good listen. Keats never made another album . . .
Edit: That should read Ian Bairnson . . Stuart Elliott is the bass player  . .

Thanks Bob. I have a number but not all of these may have to look further!

Whilst. I had the remastered tales on vinyl I bought a great condition original of eBay last year much better in my opinion. Interestingly I have three on CD and these didn't appear to transfer formats well - CDs dont retain the composure or dynamics of the vinyl when on the louder passages tales, I robot and eye in the sky.

Will have to start digging on the others you mention.

Sad to hear Eric Woolfson died a few years ago.

I've a couple of Project albums on Classic Records double-sided "CD" - one side @96kHz for DVD players, the other @192Hz for DVD-A players. I had a Pioneer universal player at the time, then an Oppo, now a Cambridge Audio Blu-Ray player - but I rarely play them, preferring the vinyl. I've also AP's "On Air" on a 5-channel DTS disc: the aircraft sound at the beginning is nicely effective in surround. Again, this rarely gets played . . Ermm - now I've got it on vinyl Wink 

The Project albums were remastered on CD a while ago with demo tracks, and other "rarities" on them.

Oh - I forgot to mention "Eve". This sounds good on the Music on Vinyl issue of a couple of years ago.
