Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and performs them live, on stage—note for note, cut for cut—using the world's greatest musicians. From Craig Martin, founder of Classic Albums Live: “The very first track of [Rumours] lets you know that heartache awaits. It’s not easy to fall apart, then sing about it, then have 25 million people buy it. It was therapy and it paid great. The vocals are tricky; there’s nuance and layering and thunder and the guitars are orchestral. Plus, the vibe of the album—the feel—that’s hard to recreate. What’s cool about this record is that everyone knows all the words, even the ushers at the shows, so when CAL hits the stage and plays this masterpiece it is joyous.”
