Well, in those early days, the idea was to show off the fact that one
actually owned a STEREO sound system! Common novelty items also included
trains and/or racing cars moving from one speaker to the other (which
could have been disquieting if one's speakers were hooked up "backwards!").

The ones I recall were the first stereo Beatles LP's...on which,
when one played only one channel one only heard half the group!
