I don't get it

When I was a child in the 1950s Mono was all there was. But by the early 1960's my Dad ditched the old mono phono cabinet and went full Stereophonic sound. Once that happened mono was dead to us. A thing of the 40's not anything to be desired.

I still feel that way. If I buy a reissue make sure it's a stereo because I don't want mono.

I do have a mono Sgt Peppers - purchased 40 years after the LP's release to see what the difference might be. What I discovered is that it sounds much worse without some stereo - even poor stereo - sound.

Back in 2001 I bought a brand new Dylan Blonde on Blonde reissue by Sundazed. I was so disappointed it was mono that even after 22 years I"ve never opened the shrink wrap. Why? It's mono!
