Something else for the season

A couple of years ago, we offered something for the season as October rolled around.

Tonight on The Midnight Tracker, we have something else for the season as we again revive an old late-night FM radio show on which one side of a new or classic album was played.

Making its way through the blue haze of time and arriving in a most timely manner is “Tales of Mystery and Imagination.”

This is the debut album from the Alan Parsons Project. Recorded over seven months in late 1975 and early 1976, and released in the late spring of 1976, it sets to music the classic stories of Edgar Allan Poe. It has long been one of my favorites.

“The Fall Of The House Of Usher” and “To One In Paradise,” the Alan Parsons Project, from “Tales of Mystery and Imagination,” 1976. This is Side 2. It runs 19:07. It’s only two songs long because the first cut is a five-movement instrumental epic that runs almost 15 minutes.

You might want to call this a bit of click or treat, if you catch my drift.
