Sorting out the Seeds
Now Playing: Pentangle "Bramble Briar"
Topic: Minor change or comment

I finally got around to putting together a long-planned overview of original 60s mono pressings of the first SEEDS LP. As you may know, this is an album that sounds a heckuva lot better in mono than in stereo. The organ fuzz on "Evil Hoodoo" is pure apocalypse in mono!

The Normans at GNP have kept the inferior stereo pressing in print for like 40 years, making it very difficult to single out true stereo originals. With the mono it is easier - the monos are always 60s pressings (with one possible odd exception shown below).

Enough of this empty-headed banter, time to dive into the universe of 2 chords!

Name: "Thomas"

There is a Capitol Records Record Club release of this but I can not remember if it was mono or stereo. I lost the auction & did not use eSnipe since I can´t find it in the "archives".
