    )))Listen to "Mr. Soul" in MONO!(((

    Forum friends,

    As per Steve's request from this thread here is the MONO mix of "Mr. Soul" for your listening pleasure which has never been released on CD. :righton:

    Listen here: Mr. Soul (removed - HZ :()

    MONO 45 RPM
    Atco Records
    Written by Neil Young
    Performed by The Bufflalo Springfield

    Can you indentify the differences between this mono mix and the stereo mix?
    Please share your comments.

    Ed Bishop Incredibly, I'm still here

    Other than being a different take, with different guitars and vocals? Nothing at all....:D

    But then, having had the 45 for a lotta years, well, even being a B-side, it was kinda obvious....

    :ed:

    Hi Ed,

    Yes, you are correct. :agree:

    Listen closely at 1:08 when Neil's guitar enters!
    His guitar tone which I assume is a Gretsch White Falcon sounds freakin' awesome!
    It's a totally different solo! :eek:

    It's the first time I heard this legendary mix and take, too it seeems. Bruce Palmer's (?) bass line in the verses sounds different or maybe it's the same just higher up in the mix. Neil's solo is totally different but on first hearing I prefer the stereo one because it's more frantic but maybe it's just because I grew up with the stereo.

    Thanks for posting this, Leppo!

    Leppo,

    Thanks for the link. It's a shame that this mono version wasn't included on the Buffalo Springfield box set.

    Leppo,

    POST THE FLIP SIDE AS WELL!

    I have not heard this version of MR. SOUL since 1967; great guitar solo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A special thanks to Namretsam for originally reminding us that the 45 version is different from the monaural LP version.

    I cannot believe that this great version was left off of the box set. Could it be they forgot about it?

    Thank you Mr. Leppo!

    I can't get to either link. I get this message: "The page cannot be displayed". What am I doing wrong?

    Isn't there an alternate version of Mr Soul in the BOX dubbed from a 45?
    I haven't got it here so I can' check.
    (I' m so sorry I can't dowload Wave from where I live I would take too long!)

    So I removed the links.

    Come on, we all know that you can't post the WHOLE song! Major copyright violation (unless your Buffalo Springfield... ;)).

    A short clip is probably fine - I think that fits in under "fair use" for reviewing the quality of the song, etc etc.

    p.s. obligatory "I Am Not A Lawyer" inserted here.

    I tried about an hour ago to listen, not on my own machine, the song came in fits and spurts (56K modem). Then I had to run.

    I'm on my own machine now. Is there any way to record/save/download the stream with your standard WinXP setup?

    ¬°Gracias!

    :crossing fingers: I really hope we get the mono Mr. Soul link back up, gotta hear that!

    I believe the version of Mr Soul in mono on the box set was a demo.

    Wow, I never knew about this. Something to seek out for the whole collection.

    WOW - thanks. What a surprise to hear a differnet guitar solo. As is the case with a lot of mono mixes, this one plows right through from beginning to end! Sorry I missed the flip side!

    Okay, all I had to do was refresh the page and my "Windows Media" sidebar came up and played the links before they disappeared. I've got to get a copy of the mono BGA so I can hear the whole arrangement of "Bluebird" in mono.

    Forum friends,

    I'll trim the clips to Holy Zoo's specifications and re-post them here soon. In the meantime, you can contact me via PM for information.

    BTW, glad you all have enjoyed and yes, you're welcome! :thumbsup:

    It's all my fault; I'm sorry. Now I'm just certain no one will let me play their reindeer games...

    Everyone, I apologize. I'll NEVER do that again!

    I think I'll suspend myself for 3 days...

    Chill, bro! We all love you. Don't worry about it.;) Just be subtle and groovy things can happen here between the lines every now and zen. Call attention to them, and they're toast for all of us.

    You don't want to be thought of as "forum rat", now do ya?:D
