The Birth of Stereo: first stereo recordings on disc

Hear some of the first stereo music tracks, put on disc over 80 years ago by Alan Blumlein at Abbey Road Studios, made famous by the Beatles 30 years later. Blumlein's ideas and principles for stereo sound are still being used by engineers and musicians across the globe.

Look at the developments that 'the man who invented stereo' made to make stereo happen on the first playable stereo 78s and how the recordings were engineered.
