Great in Stereo, Bad in Mono. What Else Is New?

On this record, we say Stick With Stereo

This album is much more common in mono than stereo, but we found the sound of the mono pressing we played deeply unsatisfying.

Where is the wall to wall space of the live club? It has been shrunken down into the area between the speakers.

Much of the ambience disappeared with it, destroying the illusion the album was trying to create, that you are actually there.

In mono, you really aren’t.
