The Alan Parsons Project were an English rock band active between 1975 and 1990, whose core membership consisted of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson. They were accompanied by a varying number of session musicians and some relatively consistent band members such as guitarist Ian Bairnson, arranger Andrew Powell, bassist and vocalist David Paton, drummer Stuart Elliott, and vocalists Lenny Zakatek and Chris Rainbow. A songwriter by profession, Woolfson was also a composer, a pianist, and a singer. The Best of the Alan Parsons Project, Vol. 2 is a 1987 greatest hits compilation by The Alan Parsons Project.

Since Parsons' real genius shines on his full-length pieces, only a sampling of the Alan Parsons Project's musical flair can be distinguished by their separate selections. Sadly omitted from both volumes is any material from the incredible Tales of Mystery and Imagination album, as well as "Winding Me Up" or "You Lie Down With Dogs" from Eve. Other questionable exclusions include "Breakdown," "If I Could Change Your Mind," and "Mammagamma," which are all worthy candidates for a best-of collection.

In 1985 the Alan Parsons Project released the charting album "Vulture Culture. Though the album was commercially weaker than their previous albums, the music was relatively consistent. The song "Let's Talk About Me" reached on the Billboard chart and on the Mainstream Rock chart. The song "Days Are Numbers (The Traveller)" reached on the Billboard chart and on the Mainstream Rock chart. I've enjoyed Parsons in any style because I like his musical finesse. From his orchestral masterpieces to more standard albums like ON AIR and TRY ANYTHING ONCE, Parsons has always provided imaginative and polished musical confections.
