This conversation brings back some memories.  Do any of you recall a 
technique that was popular in the late 50s and into the 60s called 
"phasing" or "flanging"-- I believe this was done by playing two copies 
of the same song on two turntables but playing one slightly slower, such 
that it created a sweeping and almost majestic sort of sound effect, 
like a jet plane taking off.  I believe "The Big Hurt" by Miss Toni 
Fisher features this technique. We used to have contests when I was in 
college radio, to see who could do it the best -- "Satisfaction" by the 
Rolling Stones was the most popular song to apply phasing to at my 
college station.
