Haha, well I mean back then they really over did the stereo up until the 80s.

I think the Sony Walkman changed things, much like the iPod did.

And everyone used speakers back then so it was "alright" I still don't even like the album on speakers.

Up until the White Album the Beatles recorded on two tracks originally & eventually four tracks by the time they recorded Rubber Soul & always in mono because stereo was something that was just coming out & stereo record players were a new thing also meaning most people didn't have one.  It's like when HD came out for television.  The EMI recording engineers under George Martin's supervision spent most of their time working on polishing up/editing the mono version of the Beatles' recordings including the Beatles themselves as time went on & just a few hours converting the mono version into stereo* (*as I indicated at the beginning, they did not record in stereo "first" up until the White Album).  Another thing to remember about these recordings is that the bass & drums were not as pronounced as they are nowadays because with most "cheap" record players back then, too much bass would make the record player's arm/needle jump/skip.  It was a whole different era & it wasn't just the Beatles but most popular artists up until the mid to late sixties all recorded in mono. BTW Rubber Soul doesn't sound "old" on w/HPs the reason being George Martin himself reworked the stereo conversion (he didn't like the original one done by the engineers) & for the 2009 remastered albums the present day engineers used George Martin's "reworked stereo conversion" as opposed to the master tapes.  The album sounds fantastic even by today's standards.  Just MHO.

I have to agree that as far as Beatles albums go, Rubber Soul has the best stereo sound. I'm usually annoyed by the extreme left/extreme right presentation of their stereo releases, but Rubber Soul is a lot easier to listen to. I grew up in an era without mono, so I would rather have a decent stereo master than a top-notch mono master. It just sounds more realistic to my ears.

CCR is usually the same way... I can live with it. smily_headphones1.gif it just confuses your brain since you should be able to hear all the sounds on both ears. I've gotten past that... One song that has extreme left and right stereo from them? Suzie Q. (or is it Susie Q?) listen to that. All of the instruments and the vocals are either on one side or the other.
