If you listen to early Beatles stuff, listen in headphones, you will be amazed at how George Martin panned stuff HARD left and right. Even something like a kick drum, he's panned hard left or right.

Just find a sound/band you like. Listen via headphones to where they've placed their instruments and hey...copy what they've done!

As for that Beatles stuff... McCartney carried that hard left right panning on in his own stuff. Very unusual panning.. but can you argue with their sound or success? Cheers! ~King

tight compress the bass & keep it solid right in the middle

This is in part because a) the songs were recorded on 4-track equipment until the very end of the White Album sessions when EMI finally allowed them to use the sole 8-track machine in England, so the choices were limited and they'd often "mix" while recording, and b) stereo was considered a novelty in Britain and therefore the mono mixes were given priority -- the Beatles themselves oversaw the mixing of the mono version of the Sgt. Pepper album, taking over two weeks to complete, while George Martin had the engineers mix the stereo version in roughly two days. Stereo just wasn't taken that seriously until Abbey Road, the last album recorded.
