    In Kansas City, there was an equally popular version of "Double Shot" on 
    Bang, by the K-Otics.

    Hi all,
    >   ..."19th Nervous Breakdown" was available in true stereo ( along with "The 
    Last Time" & "As Tears Go By" ) on a few bootleg CD's ( 2 for sure that I 
    know of ) in pretty mediocre quality. I know Dick Bartley used to play a 
    true stereo version of this song. It may have, thus ( ? ), been released 
    also on one of those Westwood One "rarities" discs, for radio stations 
    only. I seem to remember the Stones' dedicated Westwood One CD had some 
    tunes in true stereo ( which ones - I can't remember ! ).

    RE  Stereo
    > In 1966, I was in the GEM Discount store in Kansas City.  GEM was Government 
    Employees Mart, a huge (for the time) discount store with a very large 
    (for the time) music department.  All LPs, as I recall.  A major record 
    outlet in KC  It was very much like a Super KMART today.
    > I was looking for some stereo LPs, and could not find them.  There was a lot 
    of stereo, but not for the artists I was looking for.  I asked the clerk. 
     "Oh, we never stock any stereo in rock and roll.  No one every buys any, 
    it's just a waste of shelf space.  Kids don't care about stereo I guess"
    > At GEM, mono LPs were 2.99, stereo 3.99.
    > Paul URbahns adds:
    > This is very true, I remember local record stores that stocked the mono rock 
    albums but very little stereo. If you wanted the stereo you could special 
    order it and pay the $1.00 extra. I understand it was that extra dollar 
    that hurt sales more than anything else.
