is that even possible?
I don't think it's possible to switch the speed up in the middle of the pressing, but that's not to say you couldn't speed up (or slow down) the music by a factor of 45/33 or vice versa.
That said, there was a Hank III picture disc that Goner had somehow gotten a couple of copies of. I'm not, nor do I believe Eric is, a fan of Hank III, but he played me the record. It was weird, psychedelic blues/train sounds/satanic shit, really fucking cool; so I bought it. He, nor I, could figure out what speed to play it on. Some of it sounded better at 33 and other stuff at 45. Figure what I said above was what was going on.
