website about sound engineering/production?

I'm interested in audio engineering/production/mastering etc . Is there a website that talks about different effects, characteristics of recorded sound, etc. and then provides samples of well-known tracks

I may have asked that backwards, because I what I'm really interested in is the techniques/intent of those who shaped the sound of music I know. I remember seeing a website that described the making of classic albums from a mostly production perspective, and that's pretty close, but I would really like to see an example-based discussion, with audio clips. [PS - I lost the link to that site, help?]
There's also a film series that gets close to this -- again, the making of Plastic Ono Band or whatever -- and parts of these are soap operas and personalities, but the good parts for me are where the engineer has the original master recordings, and he turns down that channel so you can really hear what they did on this channel, etc.
Is there a website that does something like this?
