Old and wise - Alan Parsons Project

Here's another song that pops up on numerous compilation albums. Oddly enough, most albums use a shorter version than the one that appears on this version. It's a shame, because the saxophone solo at the end is a beautiful thing that deserves to be heard until the very last notes of the fade out.

'Old and wise' was taken from the Alan Parsons Project's 1982 album 'Eye in the sky'. It reached number 19 in the Dutch Top 40, but only managed number 74 in the UK singles chart during a one week chart run.

My collection: 7" single no. 180
Found: Den Haag, 1982
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Old and wise' / 'Children of the moon'
