The Alan Parsons Project vinyl box will not be repressed

11LP half-speed mastered box set

Cooking Vinyl have confirmed that their Alan Parsons Project Complete Albums Collection vinyl box set from last year will not be repressed.

The 11LP collection includes the 10 original studio albums plus The Sicilian Defence which was originally recorded in 1979 and was previously unreleased until it was offered in the 11CD box in 2014.

All albums have been half-speed mastered at Abbey Road and cut from hi-res files transferred from the best available analogue master tapes (digital master tapes for all albums from 1983 onwards). Everything has been approved by Alan Parsons.

The box comes with a 60-page 12″x 12″ hardcover book which feature lyrics, new sleeve notes and an essay from Miles Showell about the half-speed mastering. This package also comes with a large A1 poster.

The Complete Albums Collection can be ordered via the official Alan Parsons Project online shop or via the usual channels (see widget below). It still seems relatively easy to get hold of, but it was limited to 1500 copies and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
