Today I spotted a disc by someone called John Ralston. It is called “Sorry Vampire” and is due in stores in the US on October 2, 2007. It was completely unremarkable except for a note on the back:
This record is intentionally quieter than some to preserve the dynamics of the original performances. Visit TurnMeUp.com for more information.
Apparently, the official copy now reads like this:
|To preserve the excitement, emotion and dynamics of the original performances this record is intentionally quieter than some. For full enjoyment simply Turn Me Up! (www.TurnMeUp.org)|
I’d be interested to see the list of folks who are signed up. How many of them have Top 10 rock hits from the last 3 years under their belt? How many belong to the major labels driving the loudness wars?
