Englishman Alan Parsons met Scotsman Eric Woolfson in the canteen of Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1974
Parsons had already acted as assistant engineer on The Beatles Abbey Road and Let It Be and had recently engineered Pink Floyds The Dark Side of the Moon Woolfson a songwriter and composer was working as a session pianist
t was intended to be based on the I Robot stories written by Isaac Asimov who was enthusiastic about the idea
However as the rights already had been granted to a TV/movie company the albums title was altered slightly by removing the comma and the theme and lyrics were made to be more generically about robots rather than specific to the Asimov universe
Musically this album has strong influences from soul funk and disco music mixed with some influences from early electro and synthpop music
