Do you remember listening to an entire album? The thrill of dropping the needle on the greatest music ever recorded? Classic Albums Live does.  

Since 2003 we’ve been using the world’s greatest musicians to faithfully recreate these albums exactly the way they were recorded: note for note - cut for cut. 

All of our attention goes into the music. There’s no cheesy costumes, no bad imitations - just musical perfection. What more do you need? This is the soundtrack of our lives. This music blared out of car stereos, roller rinks and concert halls. they were recorded.  

Classic Albums Live is the modern day orchestra. Nowhere else will you hear these timeless classics performed with such care and attention to detail.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars - David Bowie 

Released - June 16 1972 

  

Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am 

Ladies and Gentlemen 

That was David Bowie 

And oh we miss him 

  

Luckily he left behind some of the most defining work of the 20th century 

And we’re going to pay Ziggy Stardust the ultimate respect 

And perform it note for note - cut for cut 

  

Looking back and clips of Bowie during this time 

You see a man in complete control 

Rewiring what you thought was entertainment 

  

David’s arrangements coupled with his technicolour lyrics 

Denote genius 

A man on his own path 

Taking on the world 

And the only way for him to do this 

Was via Mars 

  

David Bowie is the one historical figure that i’d like to have dinner with 

We’d start with tea 

Then perhaps some brandy 

And I’d ask him 

Who does your make-up?
