All mono releases are that way because that is how they were captured at the soundboard. They cannot be made into stereo.

How can you make a binural recording"true"stereo? They will alwats be what they are, 99% with Elvis' vocal on one channel. With regards to 'presence', I presume you refer to top notch sound quality in which case I direct you to the various projects Kevan Budd has worked on, you will find your results there. Try "Elvis at Sun" as a starting point.

It would seem so. If only some where more informed before passing their criticisms.


You bet me too the punch!

There should be no room for ignorance now that the internet offers so much so easily.

And all it takes is a little Google :D

Now that we know the official track listing for the new FTD release of Girls! Girls! Girls! :roll:. I was not wrong in my statement that the complete sessions reels for this movie are missing, as confirmed by Ernst Jorgensen not long time ago :cry:. Bye for now :wink:.

Well I must have asked for that.

OK as i'm supposed to be the uneducated one, and without the aid of google, let me enlighten you Matthew. You CAN change binaural to two track stereo with Elvis' voice dead centre and the remaining channel in 'surround.' I have done this on several occasions, so take it from me the results are fantastic.

You can and have been able to re-pan binaural for years, only now it can be done with powerful software as opposed to recording studios.

As far as the 'dull mono' recordings go there are different qualities of mono. Some have a spatial sound and clarity that are still mono but better than some of the dull muddy monos we have been served in the past amazingly with that terrible hiss from the master tape. All these things can be improved. Sadly things are left as mono or binaural because many people do think they cannot be altered. They can.

I don't doubt your expertise guys but don't doubt mine. I know my stuff and I don't need google to prove it. Thanks for the comments though....

I do like a good discussion on the great man.

Indeed, you must get a kick out of those old "electronically processed for stereo" albums.
