More Info:


''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 was broken up into five tracks (as were the CD versions except the West German pressing), with the five sub-tracks having their names listed with sub-numberings - a la an outline numbering system.. ''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. - Wikipedia
