This year Classic Album Sundays returns to America’s largest and coolest audio show, the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, where we will host our own room with a range of album sessions in which the album’s unique story will be told, followed by an uninterrupted vinyl playback on some of the world’s most amazing hi-fi sound equipment so that the fan can experience the album as close as possible to the way in which in the artist intended. Even if a fan is well acquainted with the album, chances are they will hear things they have never heard before.
CAS will feature a wide array of albums including Steely Dan Aja, Bjork Homogenic, Michael Jackson Off The Wall, The Doors LA Woman, John Coltrane Both Directions At Once, LCD Soundsystem Sound of Silver, Cocteau Twins Blue Bell Knoll and J Dilla Donuts.
The sessions will be hosted by Classic Album Sundays New York City host Barbie Bertisch who along with Paul Raffaele, runs Love Injection fanzine, radio show and events and has quickly established itself as a critical platform for celebrating the constantly shifting cultures of dance music and dance-floor culture in all its manifestations, past and present.
