Happy Together by The Turtles

Hello Friends! Today we're in 1967, with The Turtles, and their wonderful album "Happy Together". Obviously including the title hit, this album has an absolutely wonderful selection of cuts, ranging from the upbeat and uplifting opener "Makin' My Mind Up", to the beautiful ballad "Like The Seasons". However, how does it compare between it's original mono and stereo mixes? The stereo certainly features a number of well thought out panning decisions, but the mono brings in a number of effects used more haphazardly in the stereo. To top it off, we get two mixes only issued on 45s, with missing overdubs and alternate fade outs! So consider this your Guide For The Married Man!

Happy Listening, 

Frederick
