Is there a mono version of "Kokomo"?

About 15 years ago at a flea market, I found the first 6 Beach Boys studio albums in mono, in very clean shape, for a buck apiece.

Most of these albums have been presented primarily in stereo in the digital era, so I was stoked to find mono copies. (By 1965, Brian was mixing exclusively in mono, so those albums always show up in mono.)

The mono versions in general are much ballsier.

I hope I never hear that turkey again, mono or stereo.

My CD of PET SOUNDS has both the stereo AND mono version on it. I'm afraid I must disappoint you when I say I prefer the stereo version.

Big Beach Boys fan, by the way. I was into them long before I was into film music.

The stereo version is sadly a contemporary digital remix. They use digital reverb that sticks out like a sore thumb. And the vocal on "God Only Knows" is out of sync with the instruments.

I wish they would have done a good stereo remix, using analog effects.
