One More Stevie Wonder Item

Do you know those new turntables you can buy that will convert vinyl albums into mp3 files?

I don't have one (although I have a lot of LPs--including, I think, "Songs in the Key of Life"--and it's an interesting thought), but the CD version of "Songs..." that I found in a freebie bin and downloaded to the Mothership was obviously burned from an LP using one of those turntables. For one thing, when I loaded the disk into my computer no track names came up. I had to manually insert the album name. I don't have the energy to do the song names (C'mon, it's a double album).

Anyway, the gist of the thing is that, in addition to being one of my favorite albums of all time, I'm listening to it in all it's 70s-era pockmarked glory; each click and hiss transferred through the magic of computers first into my iTunes library and then into my brain.

No painting today--I'm declaring it a national holiday. Stevie Wonder Day.

I may have to make some more coffee.

I do enjoy the pops and hisses. Unfortunately, my turntable hasn't been working too well lately.
