Re: [ARSCLIST] Early stereo mass market tapes

Hey Roger,

   I don't think you can blame the "stereo Beatles stuff" for out of phase
audio.  I was familiar with a radio station in Houston that had the output
of its stereo cart machines wired out of phase.  Lead vocals to most
songs vanished...and mono material...particularly commercials...was
not there at all.   Hmmmm...maybe this out of phase business isn't so bad!

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.

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!
