The Mono Mix,,,Page 1 of 1    
One of my favorites is 'Louis Armstrong and is Hot 5 and Hot 7' - it is a compilation of recordings from around 1925 to 1928. (a good CD reissue is JSPCD 314) My favorites on it are "Muskrat Ramble" and "Cornet Chop Suey."

I got this album after I read (the now defunct) Listener magazine article 'Monolithic: The Thirty Best monophonic Recordings Ever Made' from the January/February 2002 issue.

There's lots of good stuff on mono - you may be taking a step off the deep end...

The Toshiba Apple Japan issues of the mono Beatles are the orginal (True) mon0 mixes. I too have encounted stereo mixed into mono.

A few of my other favorite mono lp's: Buffalo Sprinfield (Again) - Buffalo Springfield
Serealistic Pillow - Jefferson Airplane
Piper At The Gates Of Dawn- Pink Floyd (Also available in mono on disc)

The Axis lp was re-released in mono a few years ago by Sundazed Records. Mikey Fermer, the Stereophile magazine analog guy, said it was awesome. Expect to pay between $40- $70 for it. I truely feel, as I've mentioned in another thread, that the mono lp's of "Hard Day's Night", and "Rubber Soul" are much better. The Beatles themselves would spend alot of time on the mono mixes because they knew that that's how 90% of their fans would hear them. Stereo playpack systems were for well-heeled audiophiles who could afford Mac amps, or could build their own. George Martin would do the stereo mixes himself after the fact.
