It's like my maths teacher used to declare: "32 WHAT? Pinapples?, always put the designation". So 32ft/s would have saved you the whole oh heck what's that?

Yikes, that means that the lyrics will now have to be sung:

32.17417, do a 32.17417.... and keep falling!!!!

For those of us on the other side of the planet: 9.80665m/s, do a 9.80665 and keep falling!!!

Brilliant album ' I Wear The Face', another hard to find classic that deserves a record to 24bit/192KHz transfer or better if the master tapes still exist.
