A good stereo recording listened to on a good system with the right amount of attention and comfort is… unbeatable. It also accounts for probably about 0. Certainly easier.. Onteo is correct.

Stereo was usually a dollar more. We knew the potential was there that at some time we would own stereo equipment but for most of us, all we had at the time was a mono player. I searched though several stores looking for a mono Monkees. Bought the stereo copy and asked for a stereo player that year for Christmas. Good article. The trouble with playing stereo records over AM radio was that when the left and right channels were folded down to mono, the stuff in both channels the vocals for example became too loud.
