    …and that’s about all he said….
    Then the celebrations began.
    I got up on me Rhodes and we had a big Jam…. and then they brought out the Lamb.
    It was great… pity you couldn’t make it…

    I’m not sure if I spotted Muddy Waters there …. I’m pretty sure I saw Robert Maxwell playing tambourine….. M.Faraday on Bongo Drum.
    George .H. was there as well playing his Grestch hollow body as usual ,
    ….Johhny .B. on drums…..Enthwhistle on Bass….Y.Gagarin on trombone….
    It was a great gig….maybe next time I’ll try and get it televised.

    We celebrated on your behalf. :D

    Cheers,
    ~SEBATRON~

    Congratulation Doug and freaky! That was really fun. Seb, you are awesome. Seb has been supporting RO with his generous banner ads and now given away more of his spirit. Truly a good guy with a bright future in the pro audio business.

    Thanks Sebatron for keeping RO alive!

    Well, after searching for almost two weeks, I've got an answer! The first recorded fadeout took place in 1923. There is no engineer to give credit to because the first fade ending was done acoustically. Electric recording didn't become really practical until 1925.(1) The recording in question is Gustav Holst's "The Planets", the ending is a female offstage choir fading out.(2) Here's a huge Mp3 of Neptune, if you want to hear the end for yourselves.(3) Holst intended the fade to evoke the sense of leaving the solar system (as we knew it in 1914, Neptune was the last planet...) and going into the ether. Holst himself (who was a writer, not conductor...) swung the baton for the 1923 session.(4)

    (1) A few fun recording history links:here, here, and here.
    (2) Some links about the "The Planets" here, here, and here.
    (3) Neptune ,it's 14 Meg but sounds great...
    (4) shows the first recording of "The Planets" occured in 1923...
    (5) I just thought this was interesting, it really has nothing to do with the above answer.
