Pink Floyd’s The Wall is one of the most intriguing and imaginative albums in the history of rock music. Since the studio album’s release in 1979, the tour of 1980-81, and the subsequent movie of 1982, The Wall has become synonymous with, if not the very definition of, the term concept album.

It is a story about a rock star named Pink inspired by Roger Waters’ own experiences, as well as of those from former bandleader Syd Barrett.

Music plays a huge part of many of our lives and recorded music in particular has become a soundtrack to our busy daily routines. We run, we work, we drive, we party, recorded music is most commonly listened to within the context of another activity. It has become increasingly rare that we consume albums in their entirety in one sitting and do just that, just sit, listen and enjoy, the music being the central focus.

Classic Vinyl Playback brings music and vinyl lovers in Gibraltar together to listen to a classic album on vinyl, through high quality equipment, in its entirety in a unique setting and as close as possible to the way in which the artist intended.
