My guess is that it was a work tape that got lost or erased before the stereo mix was made. RCA Victor was making orchestral three-track recordings starting in They began releasing true stereo vinyl records in I am an audio restoration engineer, my skill involves taking an existing recording usually from vinyl and making it OK to repress… with ALL the potential trouble that it can bring.
Trust me, I am on a permanent learning curve. The best example I can come up with is the Beatles White Album. The true Mono mix is exceptional. The stereo version is.. If for no other reason than the sound quality I would recommend you at least try and find a good copy of the mono version.
Some mixes really are better in mono… precisely because they were meant to be that way. Everything has its exceptions though…. If done well. My job as an audio restorer is actually helped by stereo… even in mono. Let me explain: If there is a click on only one channel I can take the majority of the signal of the opposite channel to paste-over..
Am I making sense? Listening: I am a lifelong audio Nerd and proud of it. Stereo listening is not as straightforward as any old marketing may have you believe.. First of all you have to make sure your equipment is putting out equal levels across the channels. Then you need to be sure they are adequately spaced, with at least 35 degrees of angle between the ears and the speakers from 90 degrees dead-ahead.. And not least, you need to get your head, not only equidistant between the speakers, timign is SO crucial for stereo imagery you also need to be sure that both your ears are working properly AND that you are not tilting to one side or not facing straight towards phantom mono.
A good stereo recording listened to on a good system with the right amount of attention and comfort is… unbeatable. It also accounts for probably about 0. Certainly easier.. Onteo is correct. As I recall, record stores put the same titles in the bin, and the buyer had to choose—in my case mostly based on price. For a while, record sleeves also contained a disclaimer saying that you could play mono records on stereo equipment, but warning that stereo records might not play properly on mono equipment.
They are not the same. If you simply combine the 2 channels of a stereo record, what you end up with is certainly a mono audio track, however, whatever elements are in the center of the stereo mix usually includes the vocal , RISES in volume by around 3db.
On the other hand, a dedicated mono mix prepared by the engineer on the same song, has no such problem as he has created that mix from the multis by setting the volume level of each element in his mix, including the level of the vocal.
Excuse me? To the record, yes, if it was an old-style pickup…but never to the equipment itself. First, hardly anyone was doing dedicated mono mixes in the US by , plenty of mono titles from that year are actually folded-down from the stereo masters. The UK began phasing it out that year as well, but most of their mixes are still dedicated and often essential.

More like, "Everybody negged me because I gave this a low rating, please forgive me" Still a good review. Reiner is a douche. Pretty much sums it up. I also apparently don't know how to quote People need to listen to Fraility from The Banner.
They rape these guys in sheer heavieness and power. They can do the Misfits thing and get away with it. More like, "Everybody negged me because I gave this a low rating, please forgive me" God forbid he took criticism! I've only heard one song off of this. I like it. I saw these guys a few years back. They definitely even lack energy live. But their live show could have progressed since I saw them.
