The album I Robot to some extent looks at the questions and the extent to which as human being we may or may not be pre-programmed and act in a robotic fashion as well as the dangers of uncontrolled development of artificial intelligence. The song ‘Some Other Time’ came about because when Alan asked Paul McCartney to read a line of poetry for the Tales of Mystery album in return for a favor Alan had done him, Paul’s response had been ‘Some other time Alan, some other time’ and this gave Eric an idea for the song . Few realize that there were originally two vocalists on this song. Extract 3 from The Alan Parsons Project Audio Guide. AP I talk about our choices of singers. Breakdown – The Choir.
Alan Parsons delivered a detailed blueprint for his Project on their 1975 debut, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, but it was on its 1977 follow-up, I Robot, that the outfit reached its true potential.
