Baja Marimba Band Singles


Thread Starter
Wanted to find out about any mono versions of Baja songs that are different from the stereo ones.

The only one I know of is Juarez, which has some added chatter in the mono mix.

As with the Tijuana Brass, there are some of subtle differences on some of the mono singles, at least the few I've heard. Mostly you'll find that the mono singles have a bit more compression in their sound, and occasionally just a tad more reverb. "Brasilia" is a totally different recording, played much faster.

You can hear a bit of the compression/reverb thing going on in this promo 45 of "Wave".

Hey don't forget the 45s that were never on albums so there is no stereo version, and with the destruction of the Universal Tape vault holding the tapes..probably never will be. Songs like Man, That's Coffee and and one of my favorites, Can You Dig It?
