Two Versions of Bones

People uploading to YouTube don't necessarily get the conversions right.

This is too slow:

This is what I remember:

Looped for your listening pleasure. Listen as they go in and out of phase! Exciting!

In 2005 Fred Frith released a remastered version of Killing Time on CD on his own label, Fred Records with the six extra tracks from the RecRec reissue, plus two previously unreleased tracks, "Third Street" and "F.B.I." (live Paris 1981). This edition includes the following note: "In contrast to previous CD and LP versions, the Killing Time LP cuts are heard here as originally intended, at the correct speed and pitch and without added reverb."
Yeesh. It seems the slower version is "correct". CURSE YOU GEORGE LUCAS FOR STEALING MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES!

They sound best when played together, for sure.

I was hoping it would be that serious TeeVee lady with the intense blue eyes. She makes me feel all kinds of bothered.

You mean Zooey Deschanel's sis, Emily? Whom we saw on Letterman last night (Or the night before, hard to tell what night it is any more.) but didn't notice the eyes. Good shot of her scary eyes at her Wiki page, though.

I always remember tunes as faster, & am then disappointed when hearing them again yrs. later.

Reverb: Beefheart's Strictly Personal was reverbed & echoed by the producer agianst CB's wishes; the Cap't. called it "psychedelic Bromo-Seltzer."

Those eyes ARE scary. Good thing I'm ignoring the tube.
