Ever done that thing where a single speaker gets the + line feed from the left and from the right (send one to the - input and the other to the +)? Anything that's playing in the center is negated and not heard and volumes of the other components of the tune are heard at a louder volume based on how far they're panned to either side.

IIRC, at the beginning of Purple Haze the music is basically center, so very quiet, and then I heard Jimi clear his throat and say something quietly, since his vocal had been panned hard to one side. Caught me by surprise, and this was more than 40 yrs ago so I might have been Foxy Lady. Not sure, but it was fun to feed that into a a single central speaker and see what comes out.
 
Yes.  It was petty interesting.  You can sorta do the same thing with 3 channel surround.  Put your receiver in that mode and turn off the center speaker.  Not quite the same, but pretty close.  I mostly listen to one channel at a time when hunting down tiny clicks and pops for removal since I do nearly all of it by hand, one tic at a time.

I must say that since my new old cartridge got put into use and it is really dialed in, I'm hearing a lot more of hoots and hollers and attaboys by the players during songs for good licks and stuff that got picked up by the equipment mics in the room separate from the vocal mics.  They fall into the once you finally hear these things you will always here them or at least listen for them.  Especially with The Doors and as you mentioned, Hendrix and also with Abbey Road on a couple of songs IIRC.  Some Stones as well.  Bands that did their takes live in the studio with everyone present and playing at the same time.  These little things have pretty much gone away with multi track boards where things are done one instrument at a time.

Oh yeah, Beatlemania was real.  I seriously doubt that the girls were screaming for the cameras, in fact I would say that for sure having been all through it, from beginning til present.  TV was still a nascent primitive thing back then.  I don't think very many ordinary people knew that the camera was only recording when the red light came on.  There was no way to see yourself on camera after the fact back then.  Just watch A Hard Day's Night.  The Stones had girls screaming, too. But not as intense and it did go away for them after the mid 60's.  It never went away for the Beatles once it started.  Find the Shea stadium concert. 

Anyway ...

The long awaited 50th of Abbey Road is up and ready for pre sale.  Amazon seems to have the best price having looked around.  Giles and company have done an outstanding job so far taking in their Sgt. Pepper and The Beatles (white album) to account.  Only a purest would find fault with these efforts.  They have their proverbial hands full with Abbey Road.  As good as it sounds which is very good, it was a sloppily done final mix.  I've listened to the whole album one channel at a time at least twice.  I'm wondering how they go about fixing the glitches or leave them in because they either can't do anything about them or decide that it is best to leave them in for the overall sound.  One of these days I'll listen to some of the stuff in reverse just for S & G's.  Never really cared much back in the day.  Too complicated, plus it wasn't good for the vinyl.  Now I can take a rip and with a mouse click, reverse it and play it back at regular speed, or slower if I like.

I remember when it came out.  Senior year in HS, Philly.  My English teacher, Mr. Ebbers brought it in to class and played it from beginning to end (48 minutes plus time to flip it over) on the standard HS issue of the day all in one mono phonograph player.  We had only heard what was on the radio up until then.  It took the whole period and then some.  No one left until it was over.  Everyone was late to the next class but no one cared.  It was morning, 2nd period, maybe first.  It was his first class of the day because he was still moving things around when we got into class and hadn't played it yet.  I remember where in the building the classroom is.  It was truly a group experience.  It was all that was anyone's mind for the rest of the day. 

One of the few, maybe the only album that I knew where I was the first time I heard it.

Two nights ago dreamed I was standing in a small club (like the Cavern) watching middle-aged McCartney perform with a small band. As I turned to the exit I saw, in the back, a young Paul smoking, standing alone. I left, got in my car, and before I left the lot I thought "you should go back in there and hug him and say thanks." And then the alarm went off and it was time to get to ready for work.

A good friend who has had a bad previous marriage ten years ago and some horrible health scares lately - which have resolved - got married last week and at the reception he surprised his new bride by singing a brief medley of

"Here Comes the Sun"

(Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right)

and "Handle With Care"

(Been beat up and battered around
Been sent up, and I've been shot down
You're the best thing that I've ever found
Handle me with care

Reputation's changeable
Situation's tolerable
But baby, you're adorable
Handle me with care)

Pretty damn touching.

Cool. {#Cheers}

Edit: Got my copy today at Walmart. I miss the old record stores. Now Walmart is the only place I can get new releases, outside of online purchases. HMV has closed shop. The closest one was 1.5 hrs away in the city but it was worth the drive 2 or 3 times a year.
