Sarah O’Holla Picks: Dolly Parton – Jolene (33 RPM Version)

After I accidentally listened to an entire single on the wrong RPM, a reader of the blog told me about Dolly Parton’s Jolene being played at 33RPMS instead of 45 and it’s really amazing. I got a lot of great emails about playing records at the wrong speed about that post, that I ended up making those stories a post of it’s own. Someone also sent me a link to a documentary about DJs intentionally playing records at the wrong speed in Belgium in the 1970s I haven’t watched it yet, but it sounds interesting. – Sarah O’Holla, My Husband’s Stupid Record Collection
