From The Beatles' Abbey Road to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon to his own hit albums, legendary producer/engineer/musician Alan Parsons has made his mark on music history. In recent times, however, when he hasn’t been mixing at one desk, he’s been typing at another, co-writing The Art and Science of Sound Recording, an in-depth book on the entire music production process.
