The year was 1982 for The Alan Parsons Project – Sirius / Eye In The Sky (Live) My Favorite Flashback today…
courtesy of Wikipedia…
“Eye in the Sky” is a 1982 song by the British rock band The Alan Parsons Project from the album Eye in the Sky. It hit #3 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. in October 1982, #1 in both Canada and Spain, and #6 in New Zealand and was their most successful release. The instrumental piece entitled “Sirius” segues into “Eye in the Sky”‘ on the original recording.
The 1:54 minute instrumental piece entitled “Sirius” immediately precedes “Eye in the Sky”‘ on the original recording, which then segues into “Eye in the Sky”. On the single release, “Eye In The Sky” appears on its own, with “Sirius” edited out; this is the version that was usually played on pop radio at the time. However, album-oriented rock and classic rock stations almost exclusively include the “Sirius” intro.
A fine example of his work. Eclipses my previous fave
Really a great performance!
