Re: [ARSCLIST] Early stereo mass market tapes

This effect is commonly heard on the stereo Beatles
stuff,both CD and vinyl,where the electronics are not
properly wired,or connected.I have frequently heard
Beatles music on the radio,that sounds like this.I am
sure most of you know,that this was how Mobile
Fidelity got its name.In the beginning,they only
issued records of train sounds,from the dying years of
steam locomotives.The slogan was something about sound
in motion.
