The Turn of a Friendly Card is the fifth studio album by the British progressive rock band The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1980 by Arista Records. The title piece, which appears on side 2 of the LP, is a 16-minute suite broken up into five tracks, with the five tracks listed as sub-sections. The Turn of a Friendly Card spawned the hits "Games People Play" and "Time", the latter of which was Eric Woolfson's first lead vocal appearance. All songs written and composed by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson.

Produced and Engineered by Alan Parsons Executive Producer – Eric Woolfson Mastering Consultant – Chris Blair Recorded Between 1979 and 1980. at Acousti Studio, Paris, France; Orchestra and Choir Recorded at Arco Studio, Munich, Germany The Orchestra Of The Munich Chamber Opera c/o Eberhard Schoener, Leader Sandor Farcas, Orchestra coordinator Curtis Briggs. It was always intended that this piece would become the opening fanfare for the album, but it was later butted up to the main part of May Be A Price To Pay and became a part of that track. Nothing Left To Lose (Basic Backing Track). We have included three aspects of ‘Nothing Left to Lose’ which in a way is an anatomy of a recording.

With two of the Alan Parsons Project's best songs, the lovely ballad "Time" and the wavy-sounding "Games People Play," The Turn of a Friendly Card remains one of this group's most enjoyable albums. Parsons' idea, the subject of the album's six tracks, centers around the age-old temptation of gambling and its stranglehold on the human psyche. On "Games People Play," vocalist Lenny Zakatek sounds compelling and focused, giving the song a seriousness that aids in realization of the album's concept. As in every Parsons album, an instrumental is included, in this case an interesting number aptly titled "The Gold Bu. Like most of the band's instrumentals, its flow and rhythm simulate the overall tempo and concept of the album, acting as a welcome interlude. Although short, The Turn of a Friendly Card is to the point and doesn't let down when it comes to carrying out its idea.

Parsons himself digitally remastered all his catalog albums in 2007 using the original master tapes. The difference in sound quality is amazing-each sounds absolutely fantastic. The packaging includes revamped booklets with fresh, elaborated liner notes based on interviews with Parsons and Eric Woolfson as well as rare photos and memorabilia. I distinctly remember putting the LP of Alan Parson's Project Turn of a Friendly Card on my father's record player and turning up the volume to levels that my mom would not have approved. When The Gold Bug began to play it transported me to another world. My own musical heaven.

And they think it will make their lives easier For God knows up till now it's been hard But the game never ends when your whole world depends On the turn of a friendly card No the game never ends when your whole world depends On the turn of a friendly card.
