Dick Bartley - he has played The Last Time and 19th Nervous Breakdown in good quality stereo for some time. In 1998 or so fairly high quality versions finally began circulating. While I'm not certain, I have a feeling these originated from Bartley.
ABKCO stereo album - apparently in the late '60s or early '70s ABKCO compiled an album of stereo tracks: 19th Nervous Breakdown (both versions), Get Off Of My Cloud, The Last Time, Satisfaction, Heart of Stone, Paint It Black, Goin' Home and Have You Seen Your Mother. These same 9 tracks have shown up in places like Dartford Renegades (in terrible quality). Why such an album was ever compiled is unclear, but apparently 15 IPS reels exist for it.
