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.
The numbers attached to The Dark Side of the Moon are pretty impressive. More than 50 million copies sold worldwide, 15 straight years on Billboard’s album chart, consistently ranked in the Top 10 of many best-albums-ever-made polls. But Pink Floyd’s achievements with their eighth LP go deeper than that. In a way, their 1973 epic changed the way people made and listened to albums. Following original leader Syd Barrett’s breakdown and departure from the band in the late ‘60s, Pink Floyd took off in a different direction. The psychedelic tones Barrett brought to the music were still there, but the albums became headier — sturdier in ways that the always-delicate Barrett couldn’t conceive or articulate. Through a series of musically complex and exploratory records, the four remaining members of Pink Floyd connected personal themes to space age freakout music.
