CAS NYC presents Prince "Purple Rain"
Sunday, September 9, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Check out our newly refurbished Classic Album Sundays website where you can also sign up to our monthly newsletter with event info and recommended listening, viewing and reading.
Join us at 5 pm for the musical lead-up which will include selections from influences and contemporaries. We will then relay the story behind the album including how some of his black friends felt left behind as he took a more pop and psychedelic approach when making "Purple Rain".
At 7 pm, DJ Will will relay the story behind the album and then the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi. The audio menu will include a Rega Apheta MC Cartridge, a Rega P9 Turntable, a Moon 310 LP Phono Preamp, a Moon P7 Line Preamp, Cardas balanced cabling, a Mark Levinson No. 334 Power Amp and 4 Klipschorns. Bellwether also have a great raw bar - we suggest the oysters!
Doors close at 6:45 or when we reach full capacity but we suggest you get there as early as possible to enjoy the entire experience. Listening guidelines apply.
