Classic Album Sundays is the world’s most popular album listening experience and allows the listener to hear music contextually, communally, uninterrupted,
and in great sonic detail. At our worldwide listening sessions, music fans are able to immerse themselves into an album that has helped shape our
culture and in some cases, our lives.
We relay the artist and album’s unique story and provide a musical context that gives the listening experience deeper meaning. We share the experience of hearing the album in its entirety, on vinyl, and on a world-class audiophile hi-fi so that fans can experience the music as close as possible to the artist’s original intention. Classic Album Sundays treats the album (and music in general) with the respect it deserves rather than as a free commodity or aural wallpaper. We remind people what they love about music.
For our June session we celebrate the 45th anniversary of classic The Rolling Stones album "Exile on Main Street". Released in May 1972 by Rolling Stones Records, "Exile" was the band's tenth studio album released in the United Kingdom. Primarily recorded in a rented villa in Nellcôte, France as well as Los Angeles' Sunset Sound Recorders, the album draws on 1950s rock and roll, blues, 1930s-40s swing, country, soul and gospel styles.
Although it originally received mixed reviews, Exile on Main St. critics have since called it the Rolling Stones' best work, and it has been ranked on various lists as one of the greatest albums of all time.
Join us at one of our album listening sessions around the world to experience The Rolling Stones in a way you never have before.
