And I thought some of the Credence Clearwater Revival stuff had odd panning decisions! :D

There're some quite entertaining bits of stereo shifting at various points in this too:

And some really good playing together with a pretty cracking vocal performance.

Definitely the LCR school of panning... but you just gotta love the 70s! :-D

LOL agreed. Top comment:

Stereo is only fit for backing vocals!

Best to just work at being a good " tight" band , should all take care of itself.

But as a bass player I understand the temptation to achieve something similar through technology when playing against a drum loop in a DAW.

Sometimes just a case of adapting your part to feel right.

Apologies for the lack.of science there.
