The Alan Parsons Project releases "Ammonia Avenue" 1984
The seventh album by one of the best bands ever, the Alan Parsons Project, was released February 7, 1984. Ammonia Avenue was inspired by Eric Woolfson's visit to Imperial Chemical Industries in Britain, where he saw nothing but miles of pipes. The only other thing in sight was a sign that read "Ammonia Avenue".
Their biggest hit from the album was Don't Answer Me which reached #1 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary charts. It was followed by Prime Time (my favorite) and Since the Last Goodbye.
