I still have yet to hear a good version of "Mother" in stereo - they all sound like 10th generation dubs. Yeah, 19th in stereo (the non-boot version, anyway) is nicer sounding than the mono. Dito for The Last Time. That's not to say either of them sounds great - more that the monos just sound really bad It seems as though all those stereo boots have lots of bad NR, to some degree or another. Luckily "virgin" copies exist out there... Steve, have you ever heard 19th Nervous Breakdown in stereo?
