  • Share
  • For our next installment of Classic Album Sundays Adelaide we're facing off four classic albums in a poll on facebook. This has now concluded and we're pleased to announce that Pink Floyd's ninth studio album, "Wish you were here" has accounted for The Doors "LA Woman" Interestingly, Wish You Were Here received mixed reviews from critics on its release, claimed to be uninspiring and inferior to their previous work. It has retrospectively received critical acclaim and hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time. The album reached number one in the US and UK and Harvest's parent company, EMI, was unable to keep up with the demand. Since then, the record has sold an estimated 13 million copies What's Classic Album Sundays you ask? Classic Album Sundays is a global movement dedicated to the presentation of classic vinyl records, played through a hand-picked Hi-Fi system, front to back, for the pleasure of an audience who might not otherwise get to experience these records in this way. The intention is to provide an audio experience that is in-keeping with those originally produced by the artists involved and played as the artists intended. This is you chance to not only hear the album like you've never heard it before but also learn more about the making of the album, who the artist was influenced by and who they've subsequently influenced.... So, sit back and disconnect to reconnect to your classic albums. Want more info on Classic Album Sundays.... Classic Album Sundays was founded by Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy. Murphy is a radio host (having hosted shows since 1982 and having produced widely syndicated radio shows in the USA); an international audiophile DJ (protegé of David Mancuso and Francois Kevorkian and Director of London's Lucky Cloud Sound System); music producer and remixer (remixes for The Rapture on DFA and producing Wild Rumpus with guitarist Gary Lucas of Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley fame); independent label owner and a music journalist. In her younger years, Murphy worked for a number of well-known record shops, where she amassed far too many records. CAS currently holds regular classic-album listening sessions in London, New York, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Oslo, Sydney and many more cities (now Adelaide). As it has touched upon a cultural nerve with its mission of challenging the way we listen to music in the 21st century, CAS has received amazing coverage in BBC Breakfast TV, The Guardian, Elle Magazine, NME, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and more.
