Turn of a Friendly Card

This is a record I recently collected samples from. The album art is what made me pick it up as I know nothing about the Alan Parsons Project. This is what Wikipedia had to say about this one:

The Turn of a Friendly Card is a progressive rock album by The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1980. The album focuses on gambling, and loosely tells the tale of a middle-aged man who grows restless and takes a chance by going to a casino and betting all he has, only to lose it all. The original LP had a side-long title piece, which on the CD version is broken up into five tracks. The Turn Of A Friendly Card is also notable for spawning the moderate hits "Games People Play" and "Time," the latter of which was Eric Woolfson's first lead vocal appearance.

Lamont Dozier - Working on You

This is one of my favorite records i've picked up. My favorites are Why, Nobody Told Me, Too Little Too Long, Wired Up, Working on You and You made Me a Believer. I can play it the whole way through without skipping a song.
