Some of the high fi SSB audio crowd forget the whole idea of SSB was to 
RESTRICT bandwidth of the audio to provide the "punch" for more effective 
communications during poor propagation, use of low power, mobile operations, 

General LeMay of the Air Force (also a ham of the 50's), proved SSB was the 
superior voice mode for that in tactical SAC communications for the bomber 
fleets of the Cold War.  He did a Round the World trip to show an Air Force 
plane using SSB could maintain global communications on HF.
