Curtis is spoken of as the influence representing Hendrix's spiritual lyrical Soul aspect - but I'm not sure I've ever heard/read Jimi reference him directly? Curtis had his own open tuning on his Strat - grew up around charismatic Church - a definitive voice. But you know all that.

Gary said that 'Sure Gonna Miss Her' is his biggest seller on the Internet.

Nice Dr John, not sure I can tell the mono improvement on the clock radio I use in my office, but it is great to hear (then again, haven't heard this in quite a while).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22am doctorjazz:

Why was there a mono mix in the US in tha late 60's anyway? I thought that was an English thing, preferring mono, and even there it had pretty much been settled in favor of stereo by the late 60's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Come to the Sunshine' episodes here both Del Shannon & Gary Lewis: cometothesunshine.podomatic.com... - That's a great program btw, downloadable for anytime ( - later!)
...Mono & UK - interesting Doc! I just heard a vintage advert - Sears was selling Mono for less...

I saw John Wetton playing bass for Uriah Heep in '75. Next time he popped up producing and singing on an incredible Duncan McKay album.

I like the Weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am doctorjazz:

I remember going to EJ Korvettes Downtown Brooklyn, in the mid 60's and seeing mono versions and stereo versions, it would be a dollar less for the mono (was it $2.99 and $3.99? Don't recall exactly, that was the ballpark...). By the late60's that had disappeared, only stereo albums on the racks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am doctorjazz:

The whole thing with the Beatles Mono box set reissues was supposed to be that the Mono was considered the important mix, that was the one they focused on, the Stereo was a concession to the US market that was much more stereo oriented, and was an afterthought.
  9:52am Douglas:

$2.99 and $2.49 when they had a sale!
  9:53am WilliamfromDumont:

If i'm not wrong, Gris-Gris came out early in '68, which would still be in the stereo/mono release era. I think the stereo mix is better. Some of the cool panning is lost in the mono mix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58am doctorjazz:

Got the NRBQ box, a lot to listen to, but really enjoying it!
(if you're in the NY area, Steven Bernstein, who was on Bob's show, is playing with a jazz group, Mostly Other People Do The Killing-one of the great band names-at Cornelia Street Café tomorrow night. I'll be there...)
  9:58am RHenderson:

What chameleons be NRBQ! Hearing the 12-string gtr and side-stick percussion, I thought this was unissued Byrds.
  Swag For Life Member 9:59am deszack:

interesting info about the Beatles/mono recordings. I thought that psychedelic back-and-forth sound thing emphasized in Rubber Soul and Sgt Pepper was an enhancemnt that they embraced
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am melinda:

Artie Schroeck Implosion is a great name
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Rubber Soul' in 1965 (early days for Stereo in their case) originally had a Stereo mix w/ instruments separated hard Left & Right. You could hear them just Playing - or just Singing by turning the Balance knob that way. & we always used it to test speaker connections that way & such. When they were issued on CD (I think it was), George Martin did a new Stereo mix from the original masters. Also for 'Help!' ? The Beatles' 1st two albums - 'Please Please Me' & 'With the Beatles' from '63 - were still only recorded on two-track machines, w/ basically instruments on one & vocals the other - so Stereo for them is limited to that! By Pepper in '67 - there were two distinct mixes for Mono & Stereo - & much discussion of their differences & relative merits. Lennon himself said if you haven't heard Pepper in Mono, you haven't heard it. People go track-by-track in terms of their preferences - but not a few say the Mono Pepper is the weightier creature, when many critique Pepper for being too flowery, or something...
In the U.S. - Tom Dowd @ Atlantic for instance had had eight-track machines & such for a long time! TheBeatles had the genius of George Martin & the professional dedication of 'white-coated' British Engineers - but not til '68 & the 'White Album' did they even start to get beyond four-track recording. 'Abbey Road' in '69 was technologically a whole different animal than all the rest of their catalog - & only then was there no Mono release.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am doctorjazz:

But, at the same time, EMI was recording great stereo orchestral records (audiophiles consider them collectable, and they sell for a premium), no "Beatles stereo", with the strings on the left and the horns all on the right. Mike placement probably had a lot to do with it, along with a desire to GET a good stereo mix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- not the Pop market, but Classical Audiophiles. & serious British Engineers. Presumably they still didn't record on more tracks, or they'd have been available to THe Beatles? It hadn't been pointed out to me before that the U.S. market for Stereo was notably sooner.

The MST3K guys put out riffs that sync with movies you own.

In order to get around having to pay companies to use their movies. So they have a track for Stallone's "Over the Top."

Just as an example... lots of others. Just curious I purchased one myself.
