If you haven't heard, Bob Dylan is releasing the box set of The Original Mono Recordings (which includes the original mono versions of his first eight albums) as well as the Witmark Demos (a collection of forty-seven demos from the early 1960s), and both sort of send stereo packing. Many of us only grew up with stereo and so to hear original mono recordings (humorously satirized in this video) and so it's been a bit of a mystery as to why they are so highly valued by recording artists like Bob Dylan and his collectors. It certainly is something new for this current generation. Bye bye, Stereo!
Remember, friend - two ears, but only one brain.
