Album Notes 

  

pink floyd / dark side of the moon 

  

twenty million people bought this album 

first on vinyl, then cassette, then cd 

then one day it was on our phones 

we’ve lived a life alongside this album 

  

dark side of the moon came out in 1973 

it was everywhere 

the album cover prism was drawn on countless school binders 

we started paying attention to the sound of cash registers 

having a good stereo system was a thing 

  

classic albums live knows how to perform this album 

it’s complex and full of soul 

just getting the alarm clocks together was a feat 

all the little voices 

then you had to find someone that could sing ‘great gig in the sky’ 

we did, and it’s joyous 

  

the musicians care about this album 

it was our flagship show in 2003 

its the album that changed everything 

it’s a masterpiece that will be remembered 

forever

founder, classic albums live 

  

Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage - note for note, cut for cut, using the best musicians. “Think of it as a recital,” says Martin, “these albums are historic and stand the test of time.” Forgoing costumes and impersonations, Classic Albums Live has found suc- cess in concentrating solely on the music. “We don’t dress up or wear any sort of costume. We just stand there and play. All of our energy is put into the music. We want the performance to sound exactly like the album,” says Martin. 

  

With 100+ shows a year across North America, Classic Albums Live has seen massive success in performing arts centres and theatres. Fans in Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, New York and central and east coast Canada have all continued to support the series and make it a sustaining, successful show. “We grew while others withdrew,” says Martin, commenting on the decline of concert ticket sales, “We created something that endures and connects. These albums are sacred to people. We deliver exactly what we promote - ‘note for note, cut for cut’ accuracy.” 

It’s this type of accountability that works for the series.
