let's now compare the mixes on this Neil Diamond record:






To my ears , i'd give a slight edge to the mono mix but the stereo mix has better clarity.

One of my favorite Diamond tunes which is far superior in mono is Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show. The mono mix is unique with with the double tracked harmony vocals on the second verse and the tubular bells over the "take my hand dear Lord" bridge and this mix has never been released on CD. Horns are up louder in the closing chorus, too.

The Monkees - A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You

A good example here were mono is superior and overall sound is punchier.

Note: how stereo mix is reverbed and 'Oh Girl' (and some gibberish) is audible twice in the organ solo.

Interesting find but speed seems fast. But, maybe that's how the 45rpm was. You be the judge.

Speaking of Tommy James, here's the hit song he gave to and produced for Alive and Kicking' in 1970. Love this tune!
