First released in February 1984, Ammonia Avenue was the seventh album by The Alan Parson Project, the brainchild of composer, musician and manger Eric Woolfson and celebrated producer and engineer Alan Parsons.
The inspiration for the album title came from a visit Woolfson had made to the ICI Chemical plant in Billingham, England after meeting ICI chairman Sir John Harvey-Jones on a flight from New York. Upon visiting the plant, Eric Woolfson noticed a long street called Ammonia Avenue, devoid of people and trees and dominated by miles of pipes.
The album sessions featured the contribution of musicians such as Ian Bairnson (guitars), David Paton (bass), Stuart Elliott (drums) with Eric Woolfson playing keyboards and lead vocals on four of the album’s nine songs. Colin Blunstone, Chris Rainbow and Lenny Zakatek also provided lead vocals on the remaining songs.
Ammonia Avenue would become one of the biggest selling albums for The Alan Parson Project, attaining gold status in many European countries and the USA. The album featured such classic compositions as 'Dancing On A Highwire', 'Since The Last Goodbye' and the stunning title track. The album also spawned the hit singles 'Don't Answer Me' (a Top 10 hit throughout Europe and in the USA) and 'Prime Time'.
