Dolly Parton slowing down

And I thought I had too much time on my hands! This blogger took two Dolly Parton songs and slowed them down. Why? Who knows -- but they do have a haunting quality at the slowed down speed.

If you slow her songs down (as if you were playing an old 45 at 33rpm) she sounds completely different and really terrific. That's assuming you're old enough to remember vinyl records and the old 45 and 33 rpm records.

At the blog 'Waking Up Now' you can listen to 2 songs - 9 to 5 and Jolene at regular speed. Then listen to them slowed down to a bluesy lament. Sounds great, especially Jolene.
