Microgroove Frequency Record

Found neatly stacked next to some old Perry Como and Burt Bacharach LPs – 1 quid – a lot for a somewhat scuffed 7 inch in a musty charity shop perhaps – but worth every penny…

A blast from the past for certain – a head-ripping surge of upper frequency tones slowly descending in pitch (or cycles-per-second even) until a totally satisfying and almost essential 100 cps leads us neatly into the gut-rumbling and subwoofer responding 50cps ….    Perfect sample material for all you bass-headz and a slice of history for you researching the ‘International RIAA Standards for Microgroove Discs’ – and lets face it – who isn’t ?

  1. oh ah Farmer… good to see you over here….

    I want, I really want, that record….. that whole minimalist design thing…. i want it…..

  2. That is exactly why I bought it …. a classic in tone and layout .. what more could you ask for ?

  3. I have a copy of that album and I’ve used it a few times as a root drone by lifting up the play arm just enough to get it to loop: fifty cents at the flea market and you’re halfway to a Chain Reaction single…
