Join Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy and Supertramp producer Ken Scott to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Crime of the Century in the Elgar Room on Monday 26th February 2024 at 7pm with sound by KEF.
Ken will share the stories behind the album followed by a vinyl replay on a hi-fi system provided by world-renowned British audio brand KEF. Since 1961, KEF have created remarkable award-winning speakers from their LS wireless collection to their top of the line MUON loudspeakers. KEF exists to fill rooms with music as it was made to be heard, to move souls with truly authentic soundscapes.
Crime of the Century, released in October 1974, was Supertramp’s international breakthrough. After their first two studio albums were met with disappointing sales, Supertramp co-founders Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies recruited new bandmembers and recorded 42 songs in three different studios whilst making the record. Having just worked with David Bowie, Elton John and George Harrison, Ken Scott’s involvement was crucial to the album’s sublime sound, and he will tell the story about the recording process and working with the band.
Experience Supertramp’s Crime of the Century and its smash singles School, Bloody Well Right and Dreamer the way they were meant to be heard.
Time and Date: Monday 26 February 2024 7:30pm (Doors 7:00pm)
