“...2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the album format, making it the perfect time to show our respect of truly iconic albums, as well as our personal favourites and looking to the future of the album and how it will evolve in response to changes in technology and music consumption.”There are a host of events all round the country (although The website doesn’t make it easy to just see what’s happening near where you are) but I’ll be going for this suggested activity:
“Saturday 13th October is the first National Album Day! You're invited to take part in the nation's biggest album playback at 3.33pm by playing your all-time favourite album in full. Share with us what you have chosen at @AlbumDayUK / #NationalAlbumDay”At 3:33pm; see what they did there?
Me, at 3:33pm, I'll be playing Rush - A Farewell To Kings and, much as I enjoy the recently remastered version, I'll be playing my original vinyl version that I bought when I was a teenager!
