How would one know whether a particular jazz or pop vocals artist originally released their records as Mono or Stereo? When there is a Mono available I'd prefer that but often when you find a record in a shop there's no way to know if you're holding a stereo record that sounds better in its mono release, right? Sinatra's Capitol albums for example are known to be better in mono. I would imagine that in the mono era, mono is how records sound "better" than their simulated stereo releases. So... any foolproof way to know if I'm looking at a record that is also available in Mono?

Anyone know of a music forum that gets people into this kind of music together?

Excuse my ignorance, but how do you search the SH forums? Do you have to register, or am I missing an obvious "search" button?!

Everything on SH probably needs to carry a non-DBT health warning, though many remasters do create the night-and-day difference that people claim.

Yes you have to register, otherwise their search gives you a ''you are not logged in'' type of message.
But of course you can always use Google with the [site:] operator.
