Other mention of " Stereo 360 Sound"
The term "Stereo 360 Sound" was originally used in the labelling of "LP" records released by Columbia Records in the early thru mid 1960s...As mono and stereo LPs were released during this time, the "Stereo 360 Sound" logo was situated in a rectangular box with two arrows pointing in opposite directions which appeared on the top of the LP cover (only on stereo releases) adjacent to the "walking eye" logo. This practice ended roughly in 1968 when compatible stereo albums were released,thus mono LPs were phased out of production.
The "360 Sound" is also sometimes referred to as (or believed by some to be the name of) the recording technique where heavy reverberation,echo effects and "sound with sound" stereo separation was heard in albums released by Columbia during the 1950s and 60s under the supervision of Mitch Miller, thus giving the recordings a "larger than life" sound.
The recording technique was evident in such songs as:
- "Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean
- "Theme from A Summer Place" by Percy Faith and His Orchestra
- "A White Sport Coat" by Marty Robbins
- "Today" by The New Christy Minstrels
- "Chances Are" by Johnny Mathis
- and practically all recordings made by Mitch Miller and His Orchestra and Chorus under the branding "Sing Along With Mitch." and by The Ray Conniff Singers and The Les and Larry Elgart Orchestra.
- The book "360 Sound The Story of Columbia Records" by Sean Wilentz takes its name from the Columbia Records branding.
