For our first session of the new decade, we are so pleased to present Erykah Badu's epochal second LP, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, in full, on vinyl and in audiophile hi-fi.
And because we wish to do what we can during this time of national crisis, all proceeds from this event will be donated to the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities. See their gofundme page for more details.
Hailed as one of the greatest of the millennial neo-soul masterpieces, Mama's Gun spawned one of Badu's biggest hits, “Bag Lady.” This epically deep, jazzy and soulful work, with Badu's divine vocal stylings buttressed by production from the likes of Questlove, J. Dilla and Stephen Marley, is sure to be a soothing, spiritually nourishing start to a new era – especially with a roomful of fans in the Velvet Lounge at The Beauchamp Hotel.

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, Adelaide, 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.
