I only recently found out that Canned Heat didn't write that song - it's a version of Bull Doze Blues by Henry Thomas which was transformed into Going Up The Country by Wingy Manone in 1930 so it goes back a fair way. Sorry, it seems to be useless information day - I'll get me coat......

Right now I'm listening to Ruggiero Ricci playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the LSO under Pierino Gamba.

It was recorded by Decca in January 1957 in the early days of stereo recordings - particularly early as they had yet to devise a means of making stereo records! In those days Decca sent out two teams to make a recording like this, with separate engineers, equipment, microphones and producers for the mono and stereo versions of a recording.

Everyone knew stereo was just around the corner, even if they weren't quite sure how it would work or whether it would actually take off. In the meantime the market was 100% mono (except for a handful of now rare open-reel stereo tape issues after 1956) so they didn't want to risk screwing these recordings up for the sake of their stereo experiments!

Thus the Ricci was released in July 1957 in mono and again in September 1958 in stereo. A reviewer in The Gramophone praised the stereo release for its greater clarity and balance between soloist and orchestra, putting this down to the difference between mono and stereo. I don't suppose he realised it was an entirely different recording which just happened to be of the same thing!

I didn't know about the Wingy Manone connection - I might even have that track somewhere.
