    That's correct...for pop/rock music. The move to stereo took a little longer for soul music. Mono 45s were still still commonly commercially available as late as 1973. Atlantic pushed for stereo...

    Well, the modern-day remixes aren't done on the original equipment so they just don't have the magic that they lended to the original sound. Also, most remix engineers can't resist making their own...

    No, just good mono.

    When one folds over a stereo mix, you get a 2 db rise in the midrange, so it won't sound the same as with a proper dedicated mono mix. Let's not forget about the differences...

    I didn't say her body was fit. I said it was HOT! Lots of womanly curves, silky skin, nice boobs, thick legs...oh well...

    Hell! Are you kidding??? I can name several of her songs right off the...

    That's right, Ralph! Using car speakers, or TV speakers in the 80s, was a good idea. The same idea is used today when engineers check mixes with (gulp!) iPods! I guess it depends on what audience...

    No, that's cool. A lot of people have the mindset that people only listened to one or the other. And, as far as music is concerned, I grew up with all kinds of music since I was born, from Miles...

    A lot of Motown recordings done in 1965 sounded pretty bad (to me, anyway), stereo and mono. This is perhaps because the engineers kept working on the equipment during the downtime, and it is was a...

    Hold on, Ralph! I know you were around back then, and not to be argumentative, but, how do you explain all those Motown true stereo mixes from 1964 and 1965? And, they're all on CD and vinyl! We...

    Don't get me wrong: I listened to and bought albums as well. I grew up with them both. It isn't an "either/or" thing.

    I'm not Ralph, but when a choice was made to prepare an album, stereo mixes were made using the same multitracks, but were done by a night engineer, usually not the primary ones that did the mono...

    The poll was about singers. The Beatles would be classified a bit differently. I'd vote for The Beatles for the top band in human history.

    One must consider Time magazine's audience. Stuff like this helps them tweak their content to the readership that would vote for her over all others. Frankly, to this 50+ year-old, it is almost...

    That's correct, Splank, but when I made this comp, my focus was on the style of a particular song, not the artist. I grew up listening to singles and top 40 radio, so I am singles oriented.

    I thought the sound was on par with "Why Do Fools Fall In Love". They were both recorded and mixed by Larry Alexander except, perhaps "So Close", which was probably recorded and mixed by Luther...

    Further thinking of the New Jack Swing era, I think the reason it was a fad is because the musical style didn't allow for any growth. It just couldn't go anywhere. Most songs had that same, generic...

    I thought about that one, but I wound up with about three and a half CDs worth of songs. I didn't want to make four and pad it with what I felt was filler, so I ended up keeping it tight and making...

    I'm not sure if I ever posted this on this forum before, but midnightman mentioned NJS music in the Nile Rodgers thread, and I thought it might be a good thread for discussion. Now, I know most of...

    New Jack Swing, like early 80s R&B, is forgotten except when Janet Jackson is mentioned. And, then, people don't even think of her music as being NJS, but much of it was, and she was at the...

    I've never been to Maryland, but, according to my sister and brother-in-law who lived there for two years, it is culturally a southern state.

    I liked that! Brother Smokey! Smokin'! He almost lost me at 5:54, started to sound like one of his buddies at Fox, but, he bounced back and he has it right.
