Some time ago, I had a neighbor who was a pro motorcycle racer (Camel Pro/Winston Pro at the national level). He showed me one night that he could glance at a 33 1/3 record (yes, it was that long ago) for a second or two as it was playing and "capture" the entire label's contents. He repeated back everything that was printed on the label - song titles in order, running times, composers, even the tiny print of the copyright notice around the outside of the label.

That’s amazing. I heard that Ted Williams supposedly could do the same thing.
