    Same here, with a hiss/swish every rotation, on three WLP Reprise LPs from 1966-1967. Unlistenable to me as well.

    I have two records with rash - one Ella Fitzgerald "Clap Hands", one a Police LP. Both I couldn't get the rash off after 3-4 wet cleans. Both its absolutely audible. I can live with vintage LPs with noise, scuffs, but rash like I have on those...

    "You've Changed" is one that I've just never gotten into. I find the funk approach just too far from Tim's comfort zone to really take off; it just seems lumpen to me. It is interesting that some of the most bitter "break-up" songs from this...

    I love "You've Changed." Despite the fact that it's obvious Stevie Wonder pastiche, it's an excellent Stevie Wonder pastiche and it pastiches the right era too. It helps to love seventies Stevie Wonder, I suppose! And I do. Lyrically, the song...

    Today's song is "You've Changed", written by Tim Finn, produced by Clive Langer & Alan Winstanley, engineered by Danton Supple. Sadly, this one also doesn't stream any more, though it appears to have done so once on MySpace. "You've Changed"...

    Well, that's one of the nicest compliments I've received in a while. Thanks, @BeSteVenn. I'm not sure I can take credit. I'd like to thank extremely knowledgeable contributors to this thread like @robcar, @Jaffaman, @Otis82 @StefanWq and others...

    Not an accident, but I have a similar connection to listening to a song while driving. I was in my car listening to a Johnny Cash collection when during "A Boy Named Sue", I got a phone call that my dad had passed away. Of all songs, something...

    1987: Prince's "U Got the Look" was playing when my black 1979 T-bird was T-boned by a little blue Chevette on my way to school. Baby, that "poor vette" was going much too fast, but it was totally my fault. I was at a stop sign and didn't look...

    Don't You Pull That Stuff On Me: On March 18, 1974, I left work early with a nasty hangover. I lived on a lake outside of town. Our summertime population was around 200 and there were thirteen of us living there through the long Maine winter....

    Crazy topic but I will always remember....Dancing With Mr. D back in 1999. I was 19 and was T-Boned pulling out from a 4-way stop. I was really into the Stones at that time, like obsessed. I had just seen them a month before and was digging...

    I’ve got a pretty good one. A few years back my wife and I were on I-5 going up the grapevine on Cinco de Mayo at around midnight , returning home to So Cal. We were listening to Please Please Me when we hit a brown bear that had been hit and...

    Not an accident, but the first time I got pulled over at 17 for doing 93 in a 55, "Get A Job" by The Silhouettes was playing. I still can't listen to that song anymore without thinking how lucky I was to get a written warning (of 70 in a 55) and...

    I've had three serious car accidents. One was my fault - driving too fast on a gravel road and spun out into a bank. The other two weren't: forced off in to the median strip of a motorway by a huge truck changing lanes without looking (ended up...

    Not an accident, but I received the biggest speeding ticket of my life while listening to The Stooges’ Fun House. “Dirt” was playing when I saw the flashing lights behind me, and now I always think of that moment when I hear that song. Iggy -...
