    Offtopic Perhaps my favourite Audio-related weirdo was a guy who could recognise LPs. Just by looking at the groove pattern, he'd tell what the recording was (obviously, they removed the labels).

    I think I saw this on TV way back in ?1960-something?

    Just wait until some joker breaks into your house and obliterates all the labels on your LPs!

    This is actually not difficult to do. It's just a matter of practice and having a sufficient amount of assburgers. The clean groove rings give the song lengths away for typical pop records. For classical which often has form with repeated sections of motifs, this can be seen in the groove patterns.

    Yeah, I usually know from memory which side is A or B from the grooves because the label indicators are too minuscule or obscured for my feeble eyesight.

    Fairly easy to tell the loud and quiet passages too. But not so easy to name the passage, in front of the TV camera, repeatedly.

    I'm assuming it was a fair test, because, hey, the world was a better place fifty years ago! (And was but a naive teenager) ;) :D

    That mixed with infrasonics would likely have produced those results...infrasonic sounds have been show to produce sickness and uneasiness before,
