The Turn of a Friendly Card is the fifth studio album by the Alan Parsons Project, released in 1980. The album is a concept album about the dangers of gambling, and it is inspired by the theatricality of casino gambling as exemplified in Las Vegas and Monte Carlo. The concept of ‘risk’ at the gambling tables has obvious parallels to the risks we take in life.

The album is divided into six parts, each of which tells a different story about the dangers of gambling. The title track is a 16-minute suite that tells the story of a gambler who is drawn into the world of gambling and eventually loses everything. Other songs on the album include “The Raven”, “The Gold Bug”, and “Nothing Left to Lose”.

The Turn of a Friendly Card was a critical and commercial success, reaching number 4 on the UK Albums Chart and number 11 on the US Billboard 200. It has been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
