when stereo was introduced, they didn´t really know what to do with it so there was a lot of crazy panning going on. hard stuff... all the drums left, vox right. that sort of madness. then the idea of stereo imaging crept in over the next couple decades and mixing procedure changed in turn. i must admit that i still listen to (ex.) early beatles stereo stuff and dig it. in retrospect it sounds like "hey.. they know what they´re doing and they´re going outside the norm because they´re the masters"..... even though i now realize that they were working with proprietary tech.
