Do you mean those responsible for vocal on one channel and backing on the other?
(still existing on a 1988 release).
A lot of early stuff was mixed for tranny radio and they went home and left the engineers to look after stereo versions.
The Beatles were fantastic, great music, innovative and a cultural see-change. Audiophile recordings they were not.
Please do not encourage Abbey Road or next year we will get the one microphone recording version of Let It Be.
(Her indoors is a big Beatles fan and saw them live twice. When I wax lyrical about Naim she tells me she prefers a Dansette. For Beatles records she is probably right.)
Yes, but limited to 100 and when you consider this isn’t pressed but cut, for you.
Good job, 1. there aren’t more of them, and 2. I happen to like Gregory Porter (flew to London to see him, from a box, in the Royal Albert Hall, so the total cost of the live concert was still more than this)
Once upon a time, I owned this Sheffield Labs record. I remenber that it was very expensive at the time, but had lots of presence. Vocals, particularly backing vocals and brass sounded terrific.
As part of my mid-life crisis, almost 20 years ago, I sold c.800 LPs, includung this one (I know, I know!) and replaced almost all on CD - but not this one. Frankly, although the sound was great, the music wasn’t!
I found a bit like you for the Dave Grusin , the sound was specially good, but the music not so interesting, apart one track. I sold that album.
It’s about the same today for me. 99% of the audiophile albums are not interesting me. I can’t be involved with the music unfortunately.
