Another set right out of the gate...sigh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - know from Beatle obsessive podcasts some say the Stereo market was bigger earlier in the U.S. ...the common thing to say in the Fabs' case was they spent all day on the Mono mixes - & like half an hour on Stereo...it wasn't until 'AbbeyRoad' '69 there was no Mono version...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Donovan - didn't care if it was Jazz, Folk, Pop, World, Psych...let us @ last praise an Innovator.
