If you’re in London this weekend you might want to attend the Classic Album Sundays session at the Hanbury Arms in Islington, listening to the album through a true audiophile system. Full details on the Facebook Events page:

Classic Album Sundays / Living to Music has recently been the subject of a piece in The Word magazine, and BBC News are now planning a feature for their website. It was also a buzz to receive an email requesting links from the ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ session for Nick Mason, Pink Floyd’s drummer, who’d heard about Living To Music and, finding the whole thing fascinating, wanted to read through the comments.

We’re going to kick off 2011 with the album that launched David Bowie towards superstardom – ‘The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars’. The session will be at 9pm on Sunday January 2nd. Your help in spreading the word via Facebook, Twitter, Text, Email etc, is, as always, appreciated.

Now we’re six months in, and Living To Music is more established, I think we can leave the updates in future and bring all the info together under one monthly post rounding up the previous session and announcing the next one.

It is, of course, important that people interested in participating refer to the original blog post, which gives the full lowdown, including the guidelines – here’s the link:

    What a good idea – just heard about this on the Today programme.

    There is something specail about listening to a complete classic album. Listening on vinyl makes things even better. A couple of months ago I was contemplating a complete change of hi-fi but a seeminly innocuous discussion at work led me to purchase a ‘new’ Rega Planar 3 deck from a colleague who had only used it a couple of times in almost a decade. A quick barter and £50 later I was able to enjoy Night and Day by Joe Jackson, Get Happy by Elvis Costello, Songs in the Key of Life and Talking Book by Stevie Wonder as well as rediscover the pleasure of Deep Purpole et al as intended and as I remembered from the 1970’s.
