I was going thru a handful of LP's which belonged to my late Grandmother and was surprised and happy to find an album by The Carter Family (Sara, Maybelle and A.P.) . I threw it on my turntable and could tell something was NOT right about it then I noticed on the jacket "Stereo Reprocessed From Original Mono".....WHY??? These are recordings from the twenties and thirties ...why did seventies RCA feel the NEED to ruin the sound just so they could stamp Stereo on the label?? Sounds like pure crap. I also have seventies era Hank Williams and Elvis reissues also in the same crappy "stereo". What were the labels thinking? Did the fans actually LIKE this?? I am shaking my head.
