“Brubeck Time” is the first studio recording of the original Dave Brubeck Quartet. Recorded in 1954 in mono, the tapes were re-channeled into hideous fake stereo LPs and not well treated when first transferred to CD.
This recording can serve as a prime example for why many audiophiles had rejected the early “stereo sound” in favor of high quality monaural audio and still do.
