Good news everyone! After the sudden and sad closure of The World Bar, we've secured a replacement venue for for this listening party on Sunday December 9.
The new location is the new Title Store in Barangaroo. We're very pleased – it's a beautiful space with more room, great natural lighting and, of course, lots of interesting books and records to browse (and buy if you're keen). We're very grateful to Title's management and staff for accommodating us with such short notice.
The address is:
Shop 1, 400 Barangaroo Avenue
(Some of the information here may still indicate the old venue – just ignore that; we're working on that and it won't affect your entry at all.)
The session will effectively be a private party and will take place after the store closes at 4pm. Our doors will be at 6pm as usual.
If you're already holding tickets and for some reason the new location won't work for you, of course we'll refund you immediately.
We're also psyched to have Anwen Crawford, music critic for The Monthly and noted Cure tragic, back as our special guest speaker.
See you on Sunday the 9th! Now that we've resolved this emergency, we're so looking forward to sharing this masterpiece by the Cure with you!
Hosts: J.P. Ducharne (The World Local, Bondi Beach Radio), Jim Poe (Deep House Australia)
- Turntable: Rega RP6
- Cartridge: Rega Exact
- Amplifier: Accuphase E-202

What is Classic Album Sundays?
Classic Album Sundays is the world's most popular record club. CAS allows the listener to fully immerse themselves in the music by presenting the musical context, the story behind the album and an uninterrupted replay of the album on vinyl on an audiophile hi-fi sound system (with phones switched off and no conversation). People learn about the history of the album and then hear things in the music that they have never heard before. The events are mainly attended by non-audiophiles who are sometimes moved to tears when they hear the details of their favourite recordings.
CAS currently holds regular classic-album listening sessions in London, New York, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Oslo and many more cities. As it has touched upon a cultural nerve with its mission of challenging the way we listen to music in the 21st century, CAS has received amazing coverage in BBC Breakfast TV, The Guardian, Elle Magazine, NME, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and more.

Classic Album Sundays was founded by Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy. Murphy is a radio host (having hosted shows since 1982 and having produced widely syndicated radio shows in the USA); an international audiophile DJ (protegé of David Mancuso and Francois Kevorkian and Director of London's Lucky Cloud Sound System); music producer and remixer (remixes for The Rapture on DFA and producing Wild Rumpus with guitarist Gary Lucas of Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley fame); independent label owner and a music journalist. In her younger years, Murphy worked for a number of well-known record shops, where she amassed far too many records.
