From 9pm on 1st May 2020, Sky Arts (UK) will be featuring four back-to-back editions of Eagle Vision's Classic Albums documentaries.
The Radio Times announced this omnibus broadcast with the following article:
Classic Albums is as reliable a brand in television terms as Rolls-Royce is to the motor industry.
The track-by-track treatment is bliss for music fans, and tonight’s back-catalogue quartet are all strong entries. In the first, dissecting Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road from 1973, it feels important to hear from the an who wrote “You can’t plant me in your penthouse” (Bernie Taupin) as it does the composer of That mammoth segue from Funeral For A Friend to Love Lies Bleeding. It’s followed at 10pm by Phil Collin’s till-ringing Face Value from 1979, then at 11pm by Meat Loafs 1,000cc opera Bat Out Of Hell from 1977 and finally at midnight by Def Leppard’s 1987 LP Hysteria.
