Just ordered a 45rpm copy of The Magic Numbers first LP, it is a double vinyl release with only three tracks on each side, apparently the sound reproduction is better at 45 rpm than 331/3. I'm looking forward to hearing the results but not having to get up every 10 mins to change sides.

I borrowed (and sneakily recorded) the 45rpm release of Simon & Garfunkel's 'Bridge over troubled Water'. Let me just say WOW!

 

The record goes faster, so your cartridge is picking up more information per second, and the increased movement makes it output more signal, so a really dynamic recording will knock your socks off. You may, depending on various factors, get a little more background noise, but it's not a big deal.

Interactive video released of Bob Dylan's 'Like a rolling Stone'. Wow! That must have taken one hell of a lot of work! :yes:

The Joan Baez cover of Dylan's  "Forever Young" is the one for me.  I first heard it on the TV show, "The Wonder Years" and was blown away. I used it as a backing to a photo slide-show of a birthday, and almost everyone who sees it asks who's singing.

The new Motorhead album, Aftershock.

 

It's really rather good.
