It has been a while since I designed digital audio processing for the 
telephone industry, which of course was mono work.

I never really gave much thought about stereo processing until now, save 
for the music I listened to when I was 15 years old in the 70's. I had 
occasion to digitize 100 or so albums for customer a couple of years ago 
and can now hear all sorts of distortions I was happily unaware of when 
I was young.

One note I did make as went through the old albums was that I hit upon 
one in particular, the greatest hit of the Association (or something 
like that) and it was extremely clean without notable distortion. 
Somebody did a good job on that one and I probably would never have 
bought it as a kid but have listened to it many times now just because 
of the nice sound.

Never gave thought to the difference between listening to stereo music 
through headsets versus speakers.

Here is my question.

Can someone suggest a 1970's album I can pick up on CD that has 
extremely well engineered stereo imaging while listening through a pair 
of speakers?

Same question for headphones?

This is all in my quest to get wiser.
