jadedtom is correct in his review on this page. I can confirm that hard stereo separation is obvious throughout album, despite its being noted as monaural on both sleeve and center labels! "I've Got Something On My Mind" definitely has Drums and Strings in separate channels.

Note on my 'mono' release: it seems to play in stereo. This is most prominent on 'Lazy Day', where the fuzz guitar track seems predominantly on the right channel. You can hear stereo separation on other tracks, too. Considering the release date of 1967, this monaural issue is considered much more valuable than its stereo counterpart, but I suspect that the mono label and cover are actually stereo editions. No doubt, there are less 'mono' covers of this album, but the recording sounds like stereo to me. Suspect mispackaging from Smash records. The album itself is quite listenable, but none of the songs are as memorable as 'Pretty Ballerina' and the classic 'Walk Away Renee'.
