Thursday'MONO version is a trip'n thats th'final word, a solid wig flipper'n theres one reason,probably th'most important'n thats it makes a cat see(hear) th'LP in new light, to see what really went down n th'final hours o' makin' this double 'back to th'egg'biscuit...put side one on 'n straight away something awry is goin' down, somethings missin', not all is as it should be...'n so it goes on, things that don't get heard(that should) suddenly make their present felt more than if they were there...its that ol'mono/stereo battle, which ones best in this late age? its sometimes very hard to say cos both bring possibities that now're matter o' choice...back in th'day every layabout with a reefer burnin' would tell th'known 'truth' stereo was where its at cos th'music moves around'n when used in conjunction with headphones -POW, instant wig liftin'n that had no contenders, it was a must-have-BUZZ that ain't no cat gonna miss...o'course also theres stuff happenin' that weren't noticeable in stereo now come into focus(brought up in th'mix)givin' th'whole shebang a different makes it a much heavier sound which is total whats called for with tunes such as helter skelter, th'thing gets a poundin' readin'(dig th'mighty throb o'th'drums/bass, all mushed up into th'thickest glollop o' thuddin' rockroll noise)its an outta-control killdozer ploughin' through th'charlie desert in magnificent creepy crawl style, th'furniture o' th'tunes gets rearranged in true 'gettin th'fear'style, cats not gonna know whats happ'nin'....all this comes about due to th'efforts o' one dr.ebbetts whose main goal seems to be is to offer th'best soundin' fab4 wax there could be, takin' as th'source 'mobile fidelity sound labs'vinyl editions from th'early 80s(acknowledged as th'toppest soundin' o' all fab releases)'n digitizin' with above 'industry standards' equipment'n attention...these're not faked up with tweakin'n fanagelin' like normal record co.reissues, addin' bass to give extra oomph'n other devious plots to sell substandard ol' gubbin's to th'gullibles, these're th'straight up real deal, what is heard is what it is, nothin' untoward happ'nin', just th'gauze removed from th'sound openin' th'door a little wider, sinkin' deeper into th'vibration o' universal fabness...

Thanks very much! The best rip I ever heard of the Ebbets "mix".

I'm amazed that you don't get more comments, but grateful you don't complain about it!
