Mother Tuckers Yellow Duck - Funny Feeling / I (1969) [Original 2nd Canadian Stereo Single]

Mother Tuckers Yellow Duck - "Funny Feeling" / "I"
Original 45 RPM Stereo Single (2nd Version)
1969 Duck Records D.R. 1
~ThePoodleBites rip in 96kHz / 24bit FLAC + full high-res scans~

As a compliment to the mono first version of this single, which I ripped here, here is the re-recorded stereo version which the band released the following year on their own private label. These versions are notably more polished than those on the rawer mono record. It's also worth mentioning that the stereo version of "Funny Feeling" is a noticeably different mix than on the Home Grown Stuff CD. So, which of the versions do you prefer? Leave a comment below and let me know! :)

Thanks again to C.F. for loaning out this record for a proper restoration!

  1. First of all thanks a lot for the great band and songs that are just so cool. like both a lot. Concerning versions stereo one is less detailed but softer. Both - must-have. This is just my opinion based on my equipment. i do not listen in headphones. One again many thanks for such dedication and a great taste. Peace!!!

  2. I like both versions, but the mono has a bit more grunt perhaps. Thanks ThePoodleBites keep them coming.

  3. Thanks TPB for this, yet another, obscure Canuck rarity. Much Appreciated. Now if we can only get the Duck Records single of "One Ring Jane" / "Kill The Pig" and a decent rip of "Starting A New Day", we'd be all set. This sounds great BTW!!!
