Classic Albums Live hits the Homburg Theatre tonight as part of Sobeys Live at the Centre.
The perennial centre favourites will perform Led Zeppelin’s break-out album, “Led Zeppelin 1”, as well as a set of greatest hits.
Released in 1969, “Led Zeppelin I” included contributions from all four band members, with hits such as “Communication Breakdown”, “Dazed and Confused”, “You Shook Me”, and “Black Mountain Side”.
Although the album was not critically well-received when it was first released, critics have since come to view it in a hallowed light. Ranked No. 29 on Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest albums, the debut established Zeppelin’s rock and blues fusion. Its take on the emerging hard rock sound was immediately commercially successful in both the U.K. and U.S.
CAL is famous across Canada for its recitals of essential rock albums. The Toronto group assembles skilled musicians to recreate the greatest albums of the 1960s and ’70s, note for note, and track for track. The concerts are delivered as a pop symphony, without costumes and look-alike theatrics, just pure musicianship and songs that shaped a generation.
