You can see the difference by comparing Helvetica or Arial Narrow with Helvetica Condensed
I've now looked at samples of Helvetica Narrow and Helvetica Neue Condensed at the Linotype site; I don't see any difference between the two, probably because I lack your expert eye. But it appears that there was never a Helvetica 'Condensed'.

I still think that if you constructed samples of Helvetica Narrow, Arial Narrow, and Helvetica Neue Condensed without any of the obvious give-away letters, you would have extreme difficulty in deciding that one was uglier than the other.

By the way: is squishing any different from squashing?
