In lieu of my new 1962 stereo console with aux speakers I have decided to take a survey of everyone's favorite stereo lp's and 45's. I am limited to my own collection but here are some favs!

2. Electric Ladyland
- blew me away, a lot of fun! 15min voodoo chile is mind blowing
!


Indeed! VooDoo child (slight return) was recorded because somebody didn't believe the first had been done in a single track. SO Jimi sez come watch me do it then!

Another fun one, although not in the same league as Jimi: The Cars, Moving in Stereo. I remember laying on my back in Neil Wade's basement with the speakers in opposite corners listening to that. Wow man......... :roll:

Then you'll have to get one of those e.g. Nitty Gritty type auto record cleaners and learn how to use the Australian grime lifter fluid (or the wood-glue equivalent at 1/5th the price) etc etc etc.

Of course if the dirty record is a commercially-pressed version of anything that got mastered and remastered a hundred different times over the years and pressed in the millions - then you were right to discard it and wait for a better condition - or audiophile - copy to show up.

Need a Blues album with good stereo separation of the guitars? Howlin' Wolf - The London Sessions.
Clapton on one side, Hubert Sumlin on the other. It is a bit over-produced, not a live recording. But good for setting up stereo.
Most blues by the masters of the 50's, including the Wolf, of course, was recorded in mono, naturally.

For a more modern album with great low and high extension, Massive Attack "Mezzanine" sounds amazing.

The Doors' "Hello, I Love You" is a great stereo 45. Still have my copy.

Yeah, but which one? :lol:

I see quite a few (5) pressings of that one 45. Check this list:

See your Kiwi version in there? :lol:

Kiwi? Mine is Elektra, but I can't get more details, as I had ankle surgery yesterday, so I won't be going downstairs for a while to check matrix numbers.

Sorry to hear that. Hope it heals alright. We tend to take mobility for granted, at least I do. Take care.

It doesn't really matter which number is on your 45. It matters that it is authentic Elektra, and even that only matters to you, the lucky owner. 8)

So nice to hear all these suggestions! Thank u for your contribution to this thread. I have to agree, the dick shory stuff is just cool in stereo and I have a Ernest tubb record in stereo on Decca that sounds great. They we doing things differently with the recordings back then and the consoles with extension speakers really started to expand the spectrum of sound. This was the first time in history we started listening to audio in stereo, so it was a big deal, u can hear it in these recordings.

I will have to get a couple more command records.

some I can think off of the top of my head.

Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Go (self titled) (Stomu Yamashta, Steve Winwood, etc)
I Robot - Alan Parsons
Gentle Giant - Octopus
Remember the Future - Nektar
Radio Chaos - Roger Waters

I'll have to 2nd, Little Feat Waiting on Columbus. One of the best all time live albums.
