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?
