random how-tos

Here's a nice vintage vinyl album that promises to teach you how to type using the "sound teaching method."

What I like about this record is the ambiguity: is it just a standard instructional album, or is it an lp filled with the wondrous sounds of someone typing on a manual typewriter? Actually playing it would resolve the uncertainty, but I don't want to--not knowing is far more interesting than actually finding out.
