Note: the RCA Camden release was later
issued in Electronically Reprocessed Stereo during the mid-1960s when it
became important for recordings to be available in a stereo format.
Generally speaking, results were not very good but this was largely
dependent on the remastering engineer. Oddly, a number of recordings
previously recorded in real stereo were also remastered in this
"fake" stereo for reasons assumed to be associated with the
project budget but, nevertheless, in direct contradiction to G. R. Marek's
original mission statement
for RCA Camden recordings in 1958.
