An audible illusion of most excellentness.


I am indebted to Stephen fry for bringing this to my attention.

This is the original recording of the very wonderful Jolene by Dolly Parton…

But this…this is a thing of incredible beauty that defies description.  In 2002 someone called Goodlittlebuddy recorded the 45rpm single of the song at 33rpm.  And this is the result.

Not only does the music bed sound designed to be that way but Parton’s voice turns into a young male baritone with beautiful effect.

 

One thought on “An audible illusion of most excellentness.

  1. and, of course, if the singer becomes a male baritone, it changes the entire nature of the song and intention of the plea! I love it 🙂
