  8. Thanks very much to both Prof and Victor for this one! I didn't even know there was a mono mix. This has been a great site for me. Been following it for years. Not only have you provided me with definitive needle drops of some of my favorite lps and singles (mostly in glorious mono), you have also introduced me to many records I've never heard before. I am always interested to hear the music presented here and look forward to the comments from your various friends and followers. Thanks again for all you do.

  17. As usual,the great Prof. delivers the finest goods! I own alternate copies of many of these but your rips are frequently superior. You sir are an artist. The Cherry Red group of labels (my fave reissue outfit) should beg for your services.

  20. Thank you for this great vinyl rip of an original UK mono pressing of Wonderwall Music. Don't think that all of the hard work that goes into prepping and ripping and posting an album like this goes unappreciated. I've downloaded many of your rips. I love them all and I always eagerly await your next post. Thank you again for everything, you are truly generous.

  24. This is such an amazing blog. A testament to the love of music and record collecting. Few have the patience or the resources to make such definitive rips of these rare records which have slipped into the shadowy hollows of collectors folklore. It is not only an education reading your detailed notes, but a pleasure to hear such well mastered recordings.

  25. Thanks both to Prof and Vic. It'll be great to get a real rip of this, the only version I'd heard previously being a mediocre rip on a boot. I like this one both in mono and stereo. I wish they'd handle George's catalog the way Paul is handling his own, actually allowing the mono promo of Ram to come out, for instance. George's estate could learn some valuable lessons here. Thanks to the prof for showing us how things are supposed to be done, and all without benefit of the mastertapes as a source.

  28. I didn't have much appreciation for mono recordings until I came across your blog now it's hard to listen to the stereo versions of these vintage recordings. Thanks a million.

  31. Thanks Prof., Like another here, the only mono copy I have was downloaded from a boot as an mp3 some years back. I look forward eagerly to giving this one a spin later this evening.

  42. Thanks for ripping and sharing this one with us. Although the film is a bit weird, I love George's soundtrack. Still have my original stereo vinyl LP of this.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks so much for this. First heard it when orginally released, didn't quite grok it then. Glad to have it back in MONO!

  45. Hi Prof - any chance of a re-up? Neither set of links work for me. Cheers, Q :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. Only one redbook link was down, Jae. I fixed that one.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Brilliant, thanks! I thought I grabbed this at the time but it appears I was mistaken.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thanks for this, my father had it in his collection. He passed and my sister grabbed his record collection. $$$. I got his guitars though :). Anyways I never got a chance to listen to it. He recommended it to me because I used to play around with feedback and effects when recording music. I am very happy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thank you!! Stunning!!

  50. Prof Stoned,my dear man,sorry for my long silence-it's because I have no habit in inet communication in my far country.Your blog,attached to one of the greatest things in life (I mean music) is wonderful. My respect for You is very big. Thanks for all. With best regards from Andy.

  51. "Wonderwall" is a mono that illustrates the superiority of mono mixes over their stereo counterparts. I remember buying this accidentally direct from Apple when it first came out and was furious at not being sent the stereo--that is, until I heard the mono. The differences are as astounding on the mono of Jackie Lomax's "Is This What You Want?" Indeed the mono-single mixes of "Sour Milk Sea" and "The Eagle Laughs At You" make the stereos unlistenable. Maybe you should try to find a mint mono copy of the album. In any case, many thanks for the mono of "Wonderwall."

  52. Thank you very much for this - I had the CD but this blows it out the water. Much appreciated

  54. thank you mate

    This and every rip you do captures the mood/vibe exactly as i remember

    ReplyDelete
  55. Many thanks. Never heard the mono version. Wondering if they're any subtle differences. Looking forward...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thanks a million for this fantastic vinyl rip. It is vastly superior to the mono Wonderwall that someone put up on YouTube (which goes without saying, I guess)! Rare as hean's teeth! -Mike

  57. A second thanks for this--and, indeed, all you do. So many records from the 1960s sound better in mono than stereo where sonic space is at premium and judicious mixing is essential. In hindsight (or, should I say, hind-sonics), stereo often seems like gimmickry. I wish I could get you to perform your restoration wizardry on the Moody Blues' "In Search of the Lost Chord" and Donovan's "Wear Your Love Like Heaven." In any case, thank you for ALL that you have done.

  58. Thank you for this - a deeply beloved album of mine. Had no idea that mono even existed (though it makes sense of course). Once again it's like a veil has been lifted...

  62. Really great to finally have the mono mix of this. Maybe one day it'll get re-issued - perhaps as one of those limited Record Store Day releases?
