<<when stereo was introduced, they didn´t really know what to do with it >>

I know what you mean, but still. They had a good go at what to do with it, which is to use a format taking advantage of its properties. I mean when you realise the examples you used were pop music, and todays equivalents make ... erm, great use of cd resolution by squashing dynamic range to a third of what the bitrate allows...

I m not nostalgic though, I just like these productions even if they came about because consoles only had 3 positions for panning.

In either case, then it was different and even extreme stereo 'experimentation' like zany Esquivel records, had to be seen as desparate attempts at novelty. Today theres no such pitfall.
