I don't know if anyone else will get the same effect - but playing this
album on my laptop speakers :



The sound seems to be hovering about several inches to the left of my
laptop - whereas other albums arent having this effect (same
laptop/position) . Must be some kind of... phase thing perhaps, or its an
interaction with my own HRTF, anyway curious if anyone else is getting the
same effect and if so what theories you might have as to its cause
Its not psychedelias finest moment but still.....

It's just mono with one channel inverted.

Ciao,
Confirmed!
See the attached screenshot of Audacity showing the start of the album.
Mixing to mono silence the whole album, so one channel was inverted to
create the other.
Blame the youtube user.
I found mp3s of some songs of the album and they are "properly" mastered
in stereo.
