Can anyone tell me what those two round button-like things are on Neil's harmonica holder? Are they microphones? Does he use a wireless system?

Uncut has the FITR review now online! And the lyrics for Get Around are printed on the cover of the album. Is this some old shakey joke again? For sure I couldn't find the song as a hidden track. We'll have to wait for the Blu-Ray.

Yeah, Those two round button-like things on his harmonica holder...
They are "Blue Ray gonjulator dialect converters"...It allows Neil's harmonica playing to be automatically converted to any language as he is playing..quite an amazing bit of technology heh. To read more on this amazing bit of technology go to..

You know what? Is there any wonder why I don't trust Doctors?

I was hoping for a little more sincerity than that ;)

Ah, Dr Dip. As unfunny as ever.

That's some gut Neil is sporting these days. Karen, you like old, fat, balding guys huh?

Those two round things are a pair of wireless michrophones. I believe they showed up first on the Rust Never Sleeps tour, and he actually sings through them on Sedan Delivery, even though they seem designed for harp-use. No idea what brand they are or any tech specs, though.

And on monday it's finally FITR-day!!! Since I absolutely love the tracks I've heard so far, I can't wait!!!

I should of realised 'cause they look NOTHIN' like dialect converters!

Thanks BrynjarTakle for confirming my suspicion. I'm still interested in knowing who makes them. *Just joking about the Dr. - trust thing btw...*

With a little love and affection,
