That is a good observation!
At the time when Beatles e.t.c. made their recordings, loudspeakers
were often diffuse and stereo was kind of "new" and impressing. I
remember when we used to sit and listen and just admire that we could
hear the different instruments at different places between the loudspeakers=
It=B4s the same, I guess, as when all those "surround" TV systems are
sold. All of a sudden you hear a machine gun in your left corner of
the room, though it has nothing to do with what anything like it
could sound in reality.

I hope I understood this about phantom power right..? I didn't read
the postings, just some lines which implied that pin 2 and 3 cannot
be reversed cause of phantom power.
