"The rather wordily titled "Andrew Powell and the Philharmonia Orchestra Play
the Best of The Alan Parsons Project" was mainly recorded at Abbey Road, with
the exception of the orchestral session for the I Robot Suite, which was done at
CTS in Wembley. It was Helmut Fest at EMI Records who suggested using the
Scrabble board as a way of getting around the world’s longest album title. One
of the biggest difficulties I found in orchestrating these tunes is that certain
kinds of “rock” themes sound like muzak if they are played by a violin or other
string section: hence the solo sax on Games People Play.
"I also deliberately started some of the tracks with an intro which didn’t give
the following song away! The I Robot Suite was an interesting challenge - at
times there are themes from two songs being played at once as counter-melodies
to each other - it was fun to try to link songs whose musical styles were quite
different: I wanted to do something different with one of my favourite albums."
