Sunday 1/17/2021 1am ET: Feature LP: Alan Parsons Project – Eve (1979)

Eve is the fourth studio album by British rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released on August 27, 1979 by Arista Records. The album’s focus is on the strengths and characteristics of women, and the problems they face in the world of men. It had originally been intended to focus on “great women in history”, but evolved into a wider concept.

Eve is The Alan Parsons Project’s first album with singer Chris Rainbow. The album’s opening instrumental “Lucifer” was a major hit in Europe, and “Damned If I Do” reached the US Top 40, peaking at No. 27. “Lucifer” also is used as title track for the German political TV show Monitor.

The album’s artwork features two apparently beautiful women wearing veils. On closer examination, it can be seen that each has large sores, moles and other disfigurements hidden beneath the veils.
