Classic Album Sundays Played on Linn

Classic Album Sundays

Classic Album Sundays and Linn share both a passion for music and an appreciation of the difference that great music played at high quality can make to your life.

Chopped up, compressed and played back on portable devices which limit what you hear, music is often pushed into the background, a soundtrack to work or commuting rather than the social, life-changing experience it deserves to be.

Classic Album Sundays and Linn provide an antidote to this worrying trend.

Classic Album Sundays

You may already be familiar with Classic Album Sundays, a unique concept aimed at bringing back the art of listening. Music lovers get together once a month to listen to a classic recording from beginning to end, uninterrupted and undisturbed.

"Classic Album Sundays is proud to work with Linn for a variety of reasons. They are a unique, family-owned business that creates their own products from the outside to the inside - the chassis to the electronics. They are a very green company that only produce upon order and are committed to recycling. However, the main reason we are working together is a commitment to hearing the music the way the artist intended."
Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, founder of Classic Album Sundays

Founded by renowned DJ Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, the event has built up a dedicated following over the past year and has been widely praised for encouraging people to engage with music on a lasting basis and make time to listen.

This shared passion for quality listening experiences has brought Linn and Classic Album Sundays together.

Camp Bestival and Bestival

Join us at Camp Bestival and Bestival this summer, where together we’ll be giving festival-goers the chance to enjoy the most iconic albums ever made, with a level of clarity they’ve never heard before.

"What we love about Classic Album Sundays is that it really connects the listener with the people behind the music. Colleen brings the music to life with stories of the artist, their journey and how the music came about. Music shouldn't be treated as a throwaway commodity that is consumed and discarded. Classic Album Sundays encourages people to engage with music on a lasting basis and make the time to just listen.”
Gilad Tiefenbrun, Linn Managing Director

Classic albums already selected for the event (you can still vote online to help decide the remaining Listener's Choices) include Prince & The Revolution’s Purple Rain, Bob Marley’s Exodus, KLF’s Chill Out and Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours - all played through without interruption on Linn’s iconic Sondek LP12 turntable.

Launched almost 40 years ago and voted the most influential product in the history of hi-fi, you’ve not truly heard an album until you’ve heard it on an LP12.
