Like when some instruments are in one channel completely and not in the other
Dirty Projectors - Just From Chevron (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OO2fKwaCo2k)
The Zombies - Care of Cell 44 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afrdo2qneoI)
sometimes a used to pan the stereo and just listen to the instrumental
othertimes I would pan the other way and just listen to the Welshman and his dulcet story telling
it's the ultimate split stereo track
one vocal and guitar in the left, the other guitar and vocal in the right.
and then the strings...
by Teenage Fanclub.
Most of the songs on Drums & Guns by Low.
left channel is acoustic and nice, right channel is noisier.
i think there's a better example tho
Otherwise Songs for the Deaf has some incredible panning going on with some songs, although I seem to recall a Kyuss track that begins with just the guitar in one speaker for so long you check the cables to make sure nothing's broken.
that had one speaker in the bar and the other speaker in the skittle alley
Barman was quite fond of the Beatles and lots of their stuff is obviously panned like crazy
I remember whenever Paperback Writer came on it was a bit trippy - just after the harmony/canon bit always a laugh because the vocals would be REALLY LOUD and then you'd get the muffled distant echo of the snare hit & riff from the skittle alley
Vocals all in one ear, nothing in the other. Really annoying
Piper at the gates of dawn in stereo is fairly extreme. I nearly always prefer the mono versions. Bob Dylans' mono 60s Lps are better as well apparently.
The bass and guitar are completely, 100% separated - it just sounds weird
Eg the beginning of Vow by Garbage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb7fLA5ccWg
recorded in two different studios?
there's a track where the left and the right channels are completely different songs, so it's only listenable in one headphone at a time.
Didn't catch on.
What a dogshit idea.
you gotta listen to the whole thing, though
...Spiritualized's "Pure Phase" has two different different mono mixes of the album playing in the left and right channels, thus creating a wonderfully convoluted stereo listening experience. Apparently Jase liked both mixes equally and couldn't decide between them for the finished product, so he decided to use both (!) He then had to painstakingly stitch the album entire album together 8 bars at a time because the two tapes ran out of phase so quickly...
one side has chuck d, the other has flavor flav
