    Not sure if the audio was sped up because of an older cassette deck or
    compressing the audio for this video. Frankie never played his tunes that
    fast (pitch/tempo) he always stay very close to the original tempo/pitch of
    the song. Nice collection of tune in the vid, but if you were fortunate
    enough to hear him play in the 70’s or 80’s, you know that he didn’t have
    tunes racing via the pitch control.
