So about that mono vs. stereo stuff…

 

I like my mono CDs still.  They spin around and around while I listen to them.

If you like the version that spins around then any vinyl or CD version should work fine.

CDs do play in the car and away from home better though.

I guess so and also CD’s can be played on a record player although be warned, doing this could damage your cartridge.

Definitely mono until Pepper, and still somewhat moreso to the last.  60’s stereo mixes in general tend to be lobsided, with too much extreme i-i-solation of parts, that can give the impression that Ringo’s way off over there with George, and Paul’s over here with the tamborine player, rather than on the same stage.  On the other hand, because of that same isolation aspect, one is able to observe an individual’s performance (and hear when the b/u voc flubbed the lyric, or the tambourine was late – or hear a couple of parts, left & right, as kind of a dialogue. But usually mono.
