Event Details

We're pulling out the big guns for the Christmas season!

After their massive success with "The Dark Side of the Moon", Pink Floyd's Roger Waters decided one of the concepts on their next album should centre around their disdain of the music business. Roy Harper even makes a guestie as a record company exec who asks, "Which one's Pink?". "Wish You Were Here" also pays tribute to their friend and Floyd founder Syd Barrett who made an unannounced appearance in the studio during the final mixdown. Hear more about this story and listen to an album that is pure audiophile delight (we even have a special virgin Nimbus copy!).

Join us at 5 pm to listen to music that either inspired or was contemporary to this landmark LP. You can also order pizzas made in the the Hanbury Arms brick oven and the Hanbury are kindly offering two-for-one pizzas to CAS attendees.

Doors close at 6:45 and at 7 pm Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy relays the story behind the album. 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 which includes a Rega Apheta MC Cartridge, Rega P9 Turntable, Klimax DSM with Preamp, Linn Klimax Solo Power Amps, Chord Signature Speaker Cable, Chord Cadenza interconnects, ISOL-8 Powerline Axis and Bowers & Wilkins 802 Diamond Loudspeakers.

Listening guidelines apply.
