Well here we are on 1st December and being audio enthusiasts that could only mean one thing – mono. No not the disease but the single track recording that started it all off.
I wrote about this not so long ago but here it is again – the first ever recording in glorious mono of course. Let’s not forgot too that many of the greatest music of the 20th century is recorded in mono as we pointed out in this post about Bob Dylan’s early recordings. It is also worth checking the accompanying video which I’ve reposted above as it makes far too much sense!
So let’s raise our first festive glass to the beginning of audio technology – the mono recording, without which we wouldn’t have some of your favourite Christmas hits! Let us know your most treasured mono recordings – festive or not.
