Dust To Digital's Fertile Athens and Atlanta Roots

Posted: Nov 06, 2009

Dust to Digital's Deep Georgia Roots

 
One of my favorite organizations—hands down—stands as Lance Ledbetter’s Dust To Digital. Lance Ledbetter and Art Rosenbaum won a Grammy for Best Historical Album for History of Field Recording Volume 1. This year, Dust To Digital released Volume 2. Rosenbaum, a professor at The University of Georgia for many years, conducted the recording process, played on some songs and even illustrated the inimitable books and packaging.

Lance Ledbetter--a Georgia native--and I plan to continue part two of our in-depth interview we began in the spring next week. We talk about the origin of Dust to Digital, every release and even the latest projects underway. Dust to Digital offers the most soulful, historic and inspirational songs out there. The rare songs were transferred from old 78s to CD. Most of this music has never been heard. Some of the other indelible Dust To Digital releases include Goodbye Babylon, Take Me To the Water, Fonotone Records, Desperate Man Blues and Anthology of the String Bass to name several. Seek them out. Hearing this music is like going to church without leaving your house. It’s good for the soul, and it’s educational. Who can beat that?

flashing lights says...

Latest technology of exterior strobe light includes incandescent bulb and quartz diode that emit a clear high intensity of light or flashes at regular interval of time. The number of flashes per second may go up to 10 to 12 per second in exterior strobe light. This high rate of flashes may produce hazardous effects such as glare or fits or in certain cases may lead to nervous breakdown leading to paralysis. Apart from its disadvantage exterior police light play a vital role in Photography where all round illumination is required for short span. Theatrical effects or special effects are also produced due to use of different type of exterior strobe light. In some countries exterior flashing lights are used as fog light and in some cases to make a warning to other drivers on road. Postal vehicles in most of the countries use such a strobe light for various reasons. Some of the reason includes the awareness of other drivers to recognize the vehicle from far distance and give way for it to pass. Other reason may deal with the property of exterior strobe light to illuminate at 360 degree.
