The Beatles "Abbey Road" Brazilian Mono Mix Rip - Complete Album Playlist

This is a mono mix of "Abbey Road" taken from a Brazilian vinyl pressing.  This type of mix is known as a fold-over, where the stereo tracks are simply recorded into a mono channel, something easy enough to do today on a computer with any audio software.  These types of mixes aren't coveted as much as late 60s / early 70s DJ mono mixes released on while label promos, which were true mono recordings engineered from the master tapes.  Those DJ mixes were for AM radio broadcast, still the biggest music media market at that time.  The "fold-overs" were done for markets like Brazil where stereo had not been widely adopted.
