All of our records are play graded and come in a protective outer-sleeve. If you have any questions, please ask.

Catalog Number: AFL1-4194

Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested), occasional light-crackles. Cover looks great; light-scuffing (front/back). Inner sleeve is original (song-info). Spine is easy-to-read. Very-little shelf-wear along top/bottom-edge; wear to corners. Opening is crisp with signs of some use. (Not a cut-out.)

Hooked on Classics peaked at number 4 on the U.S. Billboard albums chart, remaining on the chart for 68 weeks. It was certified platinum. The first cut was a very successful single, reaching Number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in late-1981/early-1982. Hooked on Classics was the first and most successful album in the series in 1981, toward the end of the disco era's peak in popularity. The series had the positive effect of reviving interest in classical music among a new generation. Louis Clark, former arranger for Electric Light Orchestra, conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing a collection of very recognizable extracts from classical music pieces played over a continuous beat (sometimes an overtly disco fast beat, sometimes a slower and more subtle rhythm, always produced by a LinnDrum) that linked the segments together. This is called the Symphonic Rock or Orchestrated Rock genre.
