GUEST,Mike Was Robert Johnson recorded at the wrong speed? (54* d) RE: Was Robert Johnson recorded at the wrong speed? 05 Jun 10


Scholar Ainslie asks if anyone is suggesting the great Louis Armstrong has been also scrutinized for speeding up his recordings. Well-not just maybe-but the engineers absolutely say those recordings were speeded up-as they were recorded from one methodology to another. I know nothing of the actual events and everyone on here knows more blues than I ever have-but research is fun-and this is not a prank or amateur musicologist link. Sure-maybe a claim to sell a new set-but they could have easily recorded and released as originally recorded.

A rather long press release but this issues is discussed-on pitch, etc
