Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy will be in conversation with Dexys’ Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday 20th October 2022 at 7.00pm, as part of the National Album Day 2022 celebrations to discuss their second album Too Rye Ay.
Experience Dexys’ iconic album played back on a world-class reference quality sound system from Bowers & Wilkins, trusted by some of the world’s leading recording studios including Abbey Road Studios and Skywalker Sound.
As official audio partner of National Album Day, Bowers & Wilkins joins us in celebrating the art and craft of the album format as a body of work, and more specifically this year, the debut albums that have shaped a generation.
In what will be the 40th anniversary of the original album, the album has been masterfully reworked and remixed by Kevin Rowland, Pete Schwier, and original violinist Helen O’Hara to create Too Rye Ay, “As It Should Have Sounded.” Kevin and Jim will be interviewed on the making of the original album and why they wanted to create this new definitive version of the album in 2022.
Following the interview the album will be replayed in full on a world class audiophile sound system. The event will then conclude with a Q&A with the band allowing fans to ask questions of their own.
