It’s time to get the Led out and take a trip back to 1969! Classic Albums Live is bringing a note-for-note, cut-for-cut rendition of the Led Zeppelin II to the Kalamazoo State Theatre April 22!
Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage – note-for-note, cut-for-cut, using the best musicians. “Think of it as a recital,” says Martin, “these albums are historic and stand the test of time.” Forgoing costumes and impersonations, Classic Albums Live has found success in concentrating solely on the music. “We want the performance to sound exactly like the album,” says Martin.
Released in1969, Led Zeppelin II was the band’s first album to hit No. 1 in the US, knocking The Beatles’ Abbey Road (1969) twice from the top spot, where it remained for seven weeks. By April 1970, it had registered three million American sales. In Britain, the album enjoyed a 138-week residence on the LP chart, climbing to the top spot in February 1970. Meanwhile, Led Zeppelin II reached the top spot in other 5 national albums charts (including Canadian, Australian and Spanish albums charts).
The album also yielded Led Zeppelin’s biggest hit, “Whole Lotta Love”. This song reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1970. The single’s B-side, “Living Loving Maid (She’s Just a Woman)”, also hit the Billboard chart, peaking at No. 65 in April 1970.
