Spent some time cleaning and re-sleeving 2 milk cartons of LP's my brother has from his university days in the early to late 80's. All stuff I listened to then as well.
Playing Peter Gabriel (scratch) the run out groove has music and it plays like a sustained note until you cue the stylus.

Interested to hear other neat tricks discovered.

Monty Python's " Matching Tie and Handkerchief" has 2 grooves on one side. If you play that side a few times you will hear different material.

There was an engineer in the UK who worked originally for Apple records that first came up with the 2 groove side.
I believe his transcription work could be identified by the word "Piggy" engraved in the run out area.

If you play a Nickelback song backwards you'll hear messages from the devil. Even worse, if you play it forwards you'll hear Nickelback.

Tools Opiate has a 2nd groove, and Aenima has some stuff in the run-out.

And this is perhaps the most unusually of them all:

Quote:
two vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
one hidden track plays at 78 RPM and one plays at 45 RPM, making this a three-speed record
Side A plays from the inside out
dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped; the grooves meet for the body of the song
matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an unplayed 78 RPM record
both sides end with locked grooves
vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record

Didn't The Moody Blues have an album that did this, like, back in the '60s?

I have a couple of 78 albums where a recording of frying bacon overlays the music. :D

Rush "Fly by night" rings the bell. Run out groove.

'Eagles Live' ends with applause, which continues into the run-out and a locked track.

Not Vinyl, but CD.
I've got a Jazz Guitarist Martin Taylor CD which was a bit light but pleasant jazzwise.
At the end of the CD there are many minutes of space and then there's a tune they play in a more straight ahead jazz style, which sounds like it might be a sound check, but it's my favorite tune on the CD, but's not numbered or listed.
Ott.

If you want a bunch of interesting stuff all on one record pick up Jack White's Lazaretto. It's got everything from hidden tracks to alternate intros to a 3-d hologram. Yes I am talking the vinyl here. Music isn't bad either.

Sound of a cuckoo clock at the end of Supertramp's "Asylum" on Crime of the Century; I only heard this on the end of side one on the Audiophile series half-speed master LP, not on the regular pressings, although that might have just been may hearing.

Johnny Winters "Second Winter" album is a two record set, but the forth side is blank, and the groove is cut in reverse and runs from the label to the outer rim...

I first noticed that on my half speed pressing, but on going back to an original pressing, the Cuckoo is there, but it's almost lost in the the surface noise. I suspect it was mixed up a touch for the half speed mastered version, as it seemed a little louder to me....
