Vocals on extremely separate channels
« on: September 07, 2012, 01:44:35 AM »

This may sound amateurish and unprofessional these days, but I love when back in the 60's one vocal was recorded on one channel and other vocals were recorded on the other channel. I think that independence of the vocals gave the songs a fresh sound, as if it were a live experience. These are some examples that come to my mind (please listen to the songs with headphones):

"Rain" (The Beatles, 1966): John Lennon (lead vocal) on left channel and Paul McCartney & George Harrison (backing vocals) on right channel.

The Beatles Rain (2009 Stereo Remaster) (Original Promotional Video)


"For What It's Worth" (Buffalo Springfield, 1967): Stephen Stills (lead vocal) on left channel and Richie Furay & Dewey Martin (backing vocals) on right channel.

Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth 1967


"Christine's Tune" (The Flying Burrito Brothers, 1969): Gram Parsons and Chris Hillman share the lead vocal, the former on left channel and the latter on right channel.

Yeah, that's another good example.

Here's one by the Association: "The Time It Is Today" (1968)

You Didn't Have To Be So Nice

The oldies station that I used to listen to in the late 80's seemed to have a problem with this song and The Mamas and The Papas' "I Saw Her Again". Only one channel would play and it used to drive me nuts. The first few times I thought I'd blown a speaker or something.

The Mamas & the Papas usually did that, the Mamas on one channel and the Papas on the other channel.

I just got that album not too long ago. It was part of a huge lot I got at an auction. People looked at me like I was crazy as I schlepped 100+ albums out the door. Oh well...one person's trash is my treasure.  :)
