    This apocalyptic LP from televangelist Jimmy Swaggart was released sometime in the 1970s. It's on Jim Records, which I'm guessing was the equivalent of Apple for the fire and brimstone set. As I was posting it, I noticed that it was 16 rpm instead of 33 rpm, which is not a speed I ever recall having on a turntable, though I believe it was an option on some players in the '60s. Sixteen rpm was probably used primarily for spoken-word recordings. Does anyone have a turntable with 16 rpm?

      Actually I think "WORD" records might be the Apple equialent for the WWJD set. As far as 16 RPM's...I am not sure if I have one now but it used to be fairly common (I'm talking '60's here).

      Yeah, Jim Records was probably closer to Dark Horse.

      Check out RODARCH's newly listed '59 Philco. I shows the 16 RPM on the selector.

      I picked up a near-mint copy of this at a local Goodwill for $1.00. I ripped it @ 45RPM and then used Audacity to slow it down to 16RPM. I read somewhere that a lot of radio-based vinyls were recorded at this level in order to get more bang for the buck.

      I am ripping both sides to mp3. If you would like this, let me know, and I'll post the link. It should be ready later tonight.
