Vinyl Vision

Vinyl vision is the ability to see groove patterns in vinyl recordings and correctly identify musical recordings without the benefit of identifying labels. Only one person is on record as having this amusing ability: Arthur B. Lintgen, M.D., who demonstrated his talent in the 1980s to James Randi. Even though Randi promised to pay $10,000 to anyone who could demonstrate a paranormal ability [the prize is now $1,000,000], Lintgen's ability is merely abnormal, i.e., rare. Hence, his award was little more than a few moments of fame. The rest, as they say, is on the record.
