Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as 'the world's best musicians', Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centres across North America.
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.”
