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.
