But playing a 45 rpm record at 33 rpm is playing a 45 rpm record at 33 rpm. And describing it as 'slowed down by 25%' feels weirder than any result of such a mundane act could ever be. To the point where I'm kinda surprised the record hasn't been described as 'a vinyl'.
Townes Van Zandt. Love it.
It sounded like Rick Astley
this just makes it sound like it's sung by one of any number of alt-country no marks
used for a more upbeat song lyrically. The slowed down version makes the lyrics more poignant.
It's the musical equivalent of keeping up a brave face while you're crying inside
The original is fucking ace. As is Joanna & the Magical Orchestra's version.
Quite like White Stripes version
but I do have the One Dove version (remember them?)
(I don't have sound on my work computer but am guessing this is their version, early 90's Boys Own release)
it is great, you would hardly know it's Dolly Parton. The original is obviously an absolute classic. Copies of 7" are are on discogs a quid!
"For reasons unknown to me, S.O.A. Records out of Italy decided to repress Napalm Death's classic 'From Enslavement To Obliteration' album minus a couple of tracks (and not 'Scum' as some sources claim), except they sped it up from 33rpm to 45rpm and renamed the record and band! I guess they thought it sounded better at 45rpm and didn't have permission from Napalm Death to do it? They made up this band, X Gasmask X, which was apparently a 'commie s.e. grind' band according to a S.O.A. mailorder catalog from that time. There's even some sort of manifesto that comes with the 7", a 'declaration of war', in both English and Italian, outlining the band's stance on straight edge and politics." http://onexpath.blogspot.co.uk/2009/08/xgasmaskx-fear-of-red-planet-7.html
(And to further the absurdity apparently some copies of The Gerogerigegege "Yellow Trash Bazooka" are actually mis-labelled copies of this record)
Bruce Springsteen's 'I'm On Fire' sounds like Dolly Parton when played at the wrong speed
