I got a vinyl copy of Greyboy's album, last february while working at Miami
(Yesterday and Today Dance Music in Alton Road: *highly* recommended) and
surprisingly, when I reached home and I pressed the start button of my
SL-1200 I liked a looot mooooore...


The magic was over when I realized that it was running at 45 rpm (while it
should be 33 of course)... Check it out.

Despite the funny situation, I love the record.

Peace and groove! -AM
