Well, those of us who still have vinyl 45 singles anyway.
Someone on the web has helpfully pointed out that if you play the single of Dolly Parton’s Jolene at 33rpm it actually sounds rather good.
I tried this on some of my own 45s, with surprising and often hilarious results.
Joni Mitchell – Big Yellow Taxi – yep, definitely made a me chuckle that one
B-52s – Rock Lobster – yep, that works at 33
Jo Jo Gunne – Run Run Run – sounds like they’d taken some ‘ludes before the session
Sparks – This Town… – Russell’s voice still sounds impossibly high
Pretenders – Kid – love the guitar twang on this one
Oh, what fun! Have a go and let us know what you find. Works best with singing that’s fairly high-pitched to begin with.
