    Yes - most of Fragile

    Miles Davis - Bitches Brew (remastered)

    Tony Levin - From the Caves of the Iron Mountain (recorded by Tchad Blake with his binaural mikes)

    I do most of my listening in headphones anyway, so there's 3 out of hundreds of albums that sound nice in ears-only stereo.

    I always got a kick out of the mid-period Beatles in stereo...with stuff hard-panned to one side or the other.

    Someone once argued that this was not really stereo, but was really more like binaural. I don't know enough about binaural to refute that argument, but its still very cool being able to hear specific parts in almost total isolation.

    If you like AC/DC, I read an article in a guitar mag once that offered that Angus and Malcolm were usually panned hard left and right. They were a pretty sparse band in terms of the # of tracks mixed down to 2, so they were always good to listen with headphones, IMHO.

    And how. Still my all-time favorite "super stereo" track - just about every element is assigned to one side or the other.
