The following is a list of every single that peaked on the Billboard Top 40 chart in 1968 (based on Joel Whitburn's Pop Annual 1955-1999 publication) and also includes the Top 40 hits Pat has included in the database based a composite of other music charts. Through extensive research (and the assistance of many, many posted contributions here on this message board from very helpful board members, especially my good friend Jim a.k.a. "jimct"), I've made my best efforts to determine whether the corresponding commercial 45 release for each single was issued in mono or stereo. This list only accounts for original 45 releases and not later re-issues.

I have posted a mono/stereo 45 list for each year from 1968-1975 (see links below) and hope forum members and fellow music collectors will find these lists to be a useful reference guide. I also highly encourage anyone to let me know if there are any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions so that I can make the necessary corrections.

Todd, I applaud you putting this list together, and I truly look forward to
1969-1974. I had tossed out a hint or two a while back that I would like to
see such lists, however it is not possible for me to compile one, nor did it
seem to excite much interest. It will be nice to see just how fast stereo took
over as the norm and when.

thanks so much!

Todd, how did you miss James Brown's "Say It Loud, I'm
Black And I'm Proud", which was a stereo single.

It was a Billboard Top 10 single.

Kim, Andy - "Shoot'Em Up, Baby" (mono)
Pickett, Wilson - "I'm A Midnight Mover" (mono)

And, based on the previous discussion in David's "stereo vs. mono 45s" thread:

Brown, James - "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud (Part 1)" (mono and stereo)

Thank you Todd!

One thing you may want to incorporate is although many of the copies of "Sky Pilot" say 'Saturation Sound plays stereo or mono' some of the copies only play in mono...

Fantastic list, Todd! I've always wanted to have such a reference, but didn't think I was capable of compiling one myself. Bravo!

Blue Cheer - "Summertime Blues" (mono and stereo.)

The A-side of the commercial copy I bought when the song first hit plays stereo (B-side was mono.) Both sides of a second commercial copy on the identical label play mono.

Thanks everyone for all your feedback and valuable input! I've gone back and incorporated the new information into the master list. This leaves Bill Medley's "Brown Eyed Woman" and Frank Sinatra's "Cycles" as the only 45s left without a confirmed mix designation.

I suspect the commercial 45 of "Cycles" is in mono as well, so hopefully someone who has a copy will come forward and confirm for certain.

I find this interesting... It's been documented at another music forum that some copies of Tom Jones' "Delilah" were issued in stereo.

Actually, it was documented here, YahShure posted a link to a label scan of his stereo promo.

I did read about the stereo promo 45 info provided by Yah Shure in the thread you cited, Hykker, but I should clarify that I was referring to commercial 45 copies in my previous post. According to at least one poster on Steve Hoffman's message board forum, some commercial 45 pressings of "Delilah" were in stereo.

Speaking of London stereo singles from 1968, I once read a discussion somewhere that there were 2 different pressings of the Stones' "Street Fighting Man"...one in mono, the other a slightly different mix in stereo. My copy's a promo and is mono.

Anyone here have one of the stereo ones?

Speaking of London stereo singles from 1968, I once read a discussion somewhere that there were 2 different pressings of the Stones' "Street Fighting Man"...one in mono, the other a slightly different mix in stereo. My copy's a promo and is mono.

Anyone here have one of the stereo ones?

Yes, indeed! It's the standard London orange label promo of that era and both sides are stereo, though Flash is narrow. Flash is edited to 2:42 and Moon is 3:10, according to the labels. The Flash dead wax reads 6942 SDJ (although the label says 69-42 SDJ) and Moon is 6943 SDJ (label reads 69-43 SDJ).

Many thanks, KentT! Only one more single without a mono/stereo notation remains.
