Questlove: 'Head scratching' NFT boom may well help spark a music'revolution' in the making. NFTs, non-fungible, digital art, are starting to replace classical, expensive, mint condition, authentic coins and currency. This is an interesting topic and today we will look at the first musician to sell a digital tokenized album, back when it was still called vinyl.

"LP First album" sold for $7.00 US back in 1987. It featured Michael Jackson's first hit "Who is it?" That song alone has since become the all time number one hit and is still popular today. Since then, other well known artists have released their own digital art work and even some of the music that was originally on those old LPs is available via the Internet.

As a side note, I think that you may be surprised at who has actually profited from these NFTs. The band itself did not benefit financially from the sale of their original vinyl album. But the artist did. His profits came from selling additional singles and covers that were re-recorded as digital downloads. The artist could then legally charge higher prices for the original records and earn a profit from selling new music that uses these tracks.

This artist used his profits to make further music releases, most notably an album entitled "Thriller." It featured the hit single, "Who is it?" and was certified platinum by the RIAA ( Recording Industry Association of America).

Now back to Questlove: was he utilizing the NFTs to spark off the success of his first album? Or was this just another case of an artist who got a great deal of exposure from something that didn't really do what it was intended to do? Most artists like to use popular music outlets in order to build interest in their albums. NFTs are often utilized in that fashion, but there is no evidence that Questlove did this with "Thriller."

When comparing the two works, the first thing you'll notice is the drastically different styles of delivery. While Questlove's voice is raw and barely audible over the digital instruments on "Thriller," James Morrison ft. The Black Eyed Peas sounds pristine and clear as the main lead on that track. It almost sounds as though the singer is screaming into the microphone. On the other hand, when you look at the arrangement of the tracks on the first version of the album, you see a vision of the band operating in total harmony. It may just sound strange to anyone who hasn't heard the digital recording, but if you've ever been to a concert where the live band performs, you know that it sounds amazing.

There are several theories as to why Questlove chose to record the album in that way. Perhaps he wanted to begin work on a demo for a record label or someone in the industry was interested in the demos and wanted to give them a try. Another possibility is that he was recording the demo with the intention of giving it to an artist who would be interested in using the technology to enhance his vocals. With the technology available today, it's not difficult to imagine someone trying out NFTs to enhance their sound on their first song. A lot of artists who are vocalists have done this.

Of course, it's still very early days before anything like this can be done with NFTs. There are so many challenges to overcome when it comes to using digital audio tools, especially in this day and age when high-tech computer programs are making audio editing extremely easy. However, we are seeing more musicians experimenting with NFTs as well, which is just another great example of how music fans should embrace new ways to enhance their audio. Questlove's 'head scratching' experiment is one example of how using new technology may benefit the musician rather than against it.
