I may have to double check but I believe Sicilian Defense was after Gaudi, as Parsons & Woolfson were trying to get out of their contract with Arista. The contract basically said that if Arista rejected an album that the contract became null & void, thus freeing Parsons & Woolfson from their contract. They made Sicilian Defense deliberately bad in order for this to happen--well, bad according to their standards. Sure enough, Arista rejected it, the contract was voided, and thus Woolfson was able to go off and do his musicals [Poe, Gambler, etc] and Parsons could do whatever he wanted.

If you want to, check out Jake Shimabkro's CD Grand might see some familiar names on it...[Parsons, Ben Folds, Kip Winger...]
