In 1999, Columbia Legacy reissued Such Sweet Thunder on a very good-sounding CD, which boasted the additional bonus of being in stereo. Back at the dawn of two-channel audio, Columbia recorded this album in mono and stereo but decided to release it only in mono. Forty years later, ace audio sleuth Phil Schaap found the stereo master tapes in a mismarked box in the studio’s vaults and produced the reissue in its 360 glory (and with some splendid alternate takes, too).
