Although The Alan Parsons Project was active between 1975 and 1990, with a varying lineup of musicians, the core of the band was always Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson.

Parsons was a recording engineer and had worked on Abbey Road (1969) and Let It Be (1970) for The Beatles and Dark Side of the Moon (1973) with Pink Floyd.

Woolfson was a session pianist turned songwriter and record producer. He worked with artists such as Marianne Faithfull, Frank Ifield, The Tremeloes, Marmalade, Dave Berry and Peter Noone, as well as Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, Lol Creme and Graham Gouldman - who would later form the band 10cc.

Turning to management in 1974, he signed Carl Douglas (of Kung Fu Fighting fame) and Alan Parsons.

After working with yet more artists, The Alan Parsons Project released its first album, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, in 1976. Nine more albums would follow, the last of which was Gaudi in 1987, and overall the band chalked up worldwide sales of over 50 million.

Woolfson then went on to turn to musical theatre, while Parsons had a solo career including, for a short period, being Vice-President of EMI Studios Group.

For more on The Alan Parsons Project, and Alan Parsons and Eric Wioolfson, listen in to The Alan Parsons Project - In Focus with Dave Hewitt on Phoenix Radio at 8pm on Saturday.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.
