Tales of Mystery and Imagination is the debut album by the progressive rock group The Alan Parsons Project, released in 1976. The album's avant-garde soundscapes kept it from being a blockbuster, but the interesting lyrical and musical themes — retellings of horror stories and poetry by Edgar Allan Poe — attracted a cult audience. The title of the album is taken from a popular title for a collection of Poe's macabre tales of the same name, Tales of Mystery & Imagination, first published in 1908 and reprinted many times since.
Musicians featured on the album include vocalist Arthur Brown of The Crazy World of Arthur Brown (who sings The Tell Tale Heart) and Francis Monkman, who had played with Curved Air and later founded Sky. (Wiki)
