This is a total masterpiece of prog/rock ,every song very good the musicianship far beyond any expectations,the tracks THE RAVEN is electronic sounding ,THE TELL TALE HEART which features arthur brown is excellent two absolutely standouts are THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO and THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER also the narration from orson wells is just icing on the cake, a definite to me a 10/10  Clap

One of those 8 tracks I purchased the day it debuted.  It's become an October tradition in my home.

The Wells narration from the '80's version of Tales' was an add on that ruined the original beginning for me. Also, I recall reading somewhere where Eddie Van Maalox was called in to play a solo over the original track of The Raven. Also ruinous, I'm afraid.

I really love this album too, my favourite from Alan Parsons. I ended up with the "upgraded" version when I bought the CD... those extra guitars on "The Raven" took some time to get used to, but now I just take them for granted.

I bought this LP in 1976. I liked to blind date friends with The fall of the house of Usher Wink
