    I seem to recall that there was some previous discourse about this topic, but I'm not sure
    that it was all clear and correct. Further, there may be another article or listing of more of
    theses stereo singles, that will require more research.

    Big reason why this became important. Singles based FM Stereo formats needed the new releases in a timely fashion in Stereo. Before this a single could be out, hit big, become a recurrent or borderline oldie before there was a Stereo LP available for the FM station to play. Which often meant 6-9 months after the first single got released. This lack of Stereo 45 options for broadcasters hampered FM Top 40 and College FM station airplay of current music. A&M, Kapp, and Elektra got wise to this in this time frame. And wisely made Stereo 45 releases for radio available.
